Two new galleries exhibitions open at MIAD August 9
MIAD’s galleries are open and feature two new exhibitions, including one featuring work by Joshua Dudley Greer and one featuring work of Milwaukee area emerging and established artists.
Somewhere Along the Line: Photographs by Joshua Dudley Greer
On view Aug. 9 – Sept. 18, 2021, Brooks Stevens Gallery
For six years, Joshua Dudley Greer traveled over 100,000 miles by car, focusing his camera on the massive network of superhighways in the United States. Greer, who is based in Atlanta, has had work highlighted in the Washington Post, Wired magazine and The Atlantic, among other publications.
In this exhibition, Greer examines the real or imagined boundaries that line U.S. roadways and looks at the separations between public and private space, privilege and need, the individual and the collective, and the ideas of home and escape. The photographs depict the state of America’s infrastructure as a physical manifestation of its economic, social and environmental circumstances in unforeseen moments of humor, pathos and humanity.
2021 Mary L. Nohl Suitcase Exhibition
On view Aug. 9 – Sept. 25, 2021, Frederick Layton Gallery
This biennial exhibition at MIAD showcases Milwaukee area emerging and established visual artists who have received the Mary L. Nohl Suitcase Travel Award in the preceding two years. The exhibition features the diversity and depth of local talent who are creating new work. The latest awardees represent the first wave of travelers since the COVID-19 pandemic began. An Artist’s Reception is Sept. 9, 6 – 8 p.m.
