Grow with Marquette gallery talk in the museum with Robin Jebavy
Rolling Hills, the first of two site-specific performances, employs manual labor as the vehicle for artistic creation, acknowledging both the fundamental role of physical work in shaping spaces with intentionality, as well as the real limits to human efforts in the face of nature. The environments transformed through labor become stages for video performances that further expose the unique characteristics of place, with narratives that consider aesthetics and methodology, and are at once completely rational and absurd. Visitors are welcome to stop by to observe; we will be open from 10 a.m. until the end of the performance. Mougel’s second performance, Still River, takes place on December 21, 2017, from 7:19 a.m. to 4:20 p.m.

Brooke Thiele: Excerpts from The Fall to a Sea Called Home
Brooke Thiele uses performance, visual imagery, and sound to create The Fall to a Sea Called Home. A present-day contribution to the Korean art of pansori, a traditional form of musical storytelling involving voice and drum, The Fall to the Sea is a work in progress. Donning the spinning hanbok, the Korean dress at the center of her exhibition, Thiele transforms herself into a living animation. She then begins her transposition of the narrative of her journey--via adoption, from Korea to Green Bay--onto one of the five remaining pansori. Thiele, who has been studying both Korean and pansori performance practice, draws on her background as a filmmaker and performer to create this emerging epic.

Joseph Mougel: Silver Pixels
Joseph Mougel describes the process he used to create the ambrotypes on view in Silver Pixels. Moving back and forth between the 19th century and the 21st, and between the analog and the digital, Mougel has memorialized imaginary landscapes and created photographs that are objects. The presentation will be followed by an informal tour of his exhibition.
