Memories from Somewhere is a performance driven interactive experience that takes the concept of affect and applies it to a moment in time: a memory. The exhibit will breathe throughout with a focus on improvisation. R.A.T.M.A.N., an experimental project from musician Sam Kacala, will interpret the gallery installations with a series of performances, featuring numerous Milwaukee musicians. Sam Kacala is the first artist-in-residence for the 2022-23 season, investigating our Technology & Innovation cornerstone. Join us on July 22nd from 5-9pm, at the Arts@Large gallery, for a gallery opening, musician panel discussion, and musical performance.
View new and previously unexhibited works by Michael Lagerman in his first solo exhibition at The Alice Wilds. Lagerman’s current process includes digital and darkroom photography, rephotographing film, and video, scanning photo-historical texts, and making image-based objects. Before Render takes a claim against imagined futures as it resonates a gritty feeling of truth about the present. The included works speculate about the origins and material cultures of images and photography’s ecological impact. The ideas in this presentation take form through the artist’s multimodal approach to image-making. Lagerman’s carefully sourced materials speak to his hopes for the generation of routes towards viable sustainability and the possibilities of photography.
The Iron Horse Hotel houses more than 100 pieces of Charles Dwyer’s work.
