Rick Shaefer

Rick Shaefer | The Refugee Trilogy

The Refugee Trilogy is a suite of large-scale charcoal drawings by Connecticut-based artist Rick Shaefer. The works employ the visual language of Baroque painting to express, in a language both familiar and historical, the plight of contemporary refugees. An exhibition organized by the Fairfield University Art Museum.

 

Upside Down

The World Turned Upside Down | Apocalyptic Imagery in England, 1750-1850

The World Turned Upside Down explores the myriad ways that artists in England visualized the apocalypse in a period fraught with political, religious, economic, and cultural change. The exhibition brings together paintings, drawings, political prints, pamphlets, and illustrated books demonstrating the widespread anxiety toward the progress of modernity, and the extent to which the uncertainty of the future could be revealed through prophetic vision. Curated by Dr. Sarah Schaefer, Visiting Assistant Professor, University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee.

 

Jeffrey Gibson

Kirsten Leenaars | (Re)Housing the American Dream: A Message From The Future

This video installation builds on Chicago-based performance and video artist Kirsten Leenaars’ ongoing collaboration with a group of middle school students from two Near West Side schools—Highland Community School and the International Newcomer Center in the Milwaukee Academy of Chinese Language. The collectively generated video considers ways that complex issues of the day—including the environment, economics, race, gender, equality, education, technology, and (im)migration—will shape America fifty years from now.

 

Rosenquist

James Rosenquist | F-111 (South, West, North, East), 1974

This focused exhibition presents a selection of prints by James Rosenquist from the permanent collection of the Haggerty Museum of Art. The artist’s seminal F-111 (South, West, North, East) and several other socio-politically motivated prints will be on view.

Jeffrey GibsonLook How Far We've Come | Jeffrey Gibson

Contemporary artist Jeffrey Gibson is best known for sculptures and paintings that intermingle traditional Native American art with contemporary art and culture. The Haggerty Museum of Art at Marquette University will present Look How Far We’ve Come!, a solo exhibition of Gibson’s work, from February 2 – May 21, 2017. The exhibition will include a newly-commissioned, beaded wall hanging, soundtrack, and site-specific wall painting inspired by Gibson’s research in the Native American Collections of Marquette University’s archives. Existing paintings and sculptural works from other private and institutional lenders will also be on view.


Lakota VoicesLakota Voices | Collection Highlights from the Heritage Center at Red Cloud Indian School

The richness and diversity of the Lakota culture is celebrated in this exhibition drawn from the collection of The Heritage Center at Red Cloud Indian School on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. The exhibition juxtaposes the creations of historic Lakota artists with the work of contemporary Lakota artists inspired by, and in dialogue with, traditional art forms such as buffalo bonnets, ledger drawings, and painted buffalo horns. It will also explore the extraordinary relationship between Jesuit and Lakota cultural traditions characterizing the Red Cloud Indian School.


Corita KentWe Can Make It | The Prints of Corita Kent

American artist and educator Corita Kent (1918-1986) used art as a tool for communicating messages of faith, activism, and social responsibility. A Sister of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Corita taught at the Art Department at Immaculate Heart College in Los Angeles from 1947 through 1968. There, she developed a signature style of printmaking that combined the bold and graphic visual strategies of Pop art with calls for social justice and understanding.

Gendron Jensen

Series on Resurrection in Nature

Gendron Jensen

For more than 40 years Gendron Jensen, a largely self-taught artist now living in New Mexico, has obsessively and lovingly transformed found relics into wakeful images of uncommon beauty. A Wisconsin native, Jensen spent his childhood on his family’s farm in Grand Rapids, Minn. As a young man Jensen entered the novitiate at Saint Benedict's Abbey in Benet Lake, Wis. He would eventually work in the monastery’s print shop and develop a passion for drawing during long walks in the natural environment surrounding the abbey. Series on Resurrection in Nature, Jensen’s first body of drawings, consists of sixteen 60" x 72" finely detailed graphite drawings of small natural phenomena such as a black walnut shell, a dragonfly wing and a raccoon skull. Jensen’s masterful drawings bring large-scale grandeur to some of nature’s smallest treasures, and invite us to join Jensen in meditating upon the inner life that he perceives in nature’s many forms.

Kirsten Leenaars

(Re)housing the American Dream

Kirsten Leenaars

This three-channel video installation, commissioned by the Haggerty and developed in collaboration with students from three Near West Side neighborhood schools, is the result of artist Kirsten Leenaars’ community-based, participatory exploration of the relationship between home and happiness.


George Rouault

Religion and Neo-Medievalism in Rouault’s Miserere

CURRENT TENDENCIES III ARTISTS FROM MILWAUKEE
Current Tendencies III features the work of nine emerging, mid-career, and established Milwaukee artists working in a variety of media including photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, and sculpture. The artists participating in the exhibition are Tyanna Buie, William E. Carpenter, Evan Gruzis, Jon Horvath, Mark Mulhern, Jean Roberts Guequierre, Cassandra Smith and Jessica Steeber (in collaboration) and Jason S.Yi.

RE-SEEING THE PERMANENT COLLECTION THE VIEWER'S VOICE
This exhibition highlights works from the Haggerty’s permanent collection selected by Marquette faculty, staff, and students.  The featured work represents a wide range of styles, processes, and media created by Renaissance to contemporary artists from diverse locales.  Project participants wrote a brief reflection on the piece they choose, expressing why they were drawn to the work and, in the case of some professors, how the work is used in their teaching practices.

NEW OBJECTIVITY IN GERMAN ART  HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE MARVIN AND JANET FISHMAN COLLECTION
Over the course of 30 years, the late Marvin and Janet Fishman amassed one of the most important collections of early twentieth-century German art, and in 2000 the Haggerty Museum of Art received a substantial gift of paintings and drawings. This exhibition includes a selection of Neue Sachlichkeit, or New Objectivity, works. A stylistically diverse artistic sensibility characterized by matter-of-fact representation of harsh realities, New Objectivity emerged during Germany’s Weimar Republic, a particularly tumultuous period marked by extreme political and social unrest. 

ABERRANCE AND ARTIFICE THE NORTON COLLECTION
Many of the works that comprise the Norton Collection were made in the mid-1990s by then-emerging American artists, including Gregory Crewdson, Tim Ebner, Elliott Green, Tom Knechtel, Judy Pfaff and Alexis Rockman. The group of photographs, paintings, drawings, and sculpture included in this exhibition rupture visual and cultural boundaries to interrogate perceptions of what is considered “normal” or “natural.” By playfully fusing conflicting things or ideas, the artists explore the contradictory relationships between repulsion and desire, earthly and immaterial, fascination and dread.

JIM DOW AMERICAN STUDIES
Over the span of forty years, photographer Jim Dow embarked on countless road trips across America to document the idiosyncratic qualities of banal sites—from motels and roadside diners to barbershops and storefront windows. This body of work captures the spirit of our uniquely American environment but also documents the impermanence of our ever-changing visual landscape.


January 16 - May 19, 2013

DARK BLUE THE WATER AS PROTAGONIST
The photographers included in the exhibition Dark Blue utilize water as an active element, making pictures that are, at their core, psychological engagements. Water is often perceived as a restorative element, an essential means to health and happiness. Yet, at the same time, it is a force formidable for its potential to threaten life.

IMAGES OF THE VIRGIN MARY
Images of the Virgin Mary is an exhibition of international works of art from the late fourteenth century to the mid-twentieth century. Based on the life of the Virgin Mary, the exhibition includes paintings, prints, and sculpture that illustrate the five major events of The Annunciation, The Nativity, The Flight into Egypt, The Pietà, and The Assumption and Coronation. Organized by theme, the exhibition creates a lively dialogue between artistic periods, medieval through Modern, and juxtaposes diverse styles and media.

READ BETWEEN THE LINES ENRIQUE CHAGOYA’S CODEX PRINTS
Read Between the Lines: Enrique Chagoya's Codex Prints is comprised of editioned, accordion-folded artist books and the preparatory drawings and trial proofs created during their fabrication. The exhibition seeks to reveal how and why the codex format, made of amate, or bark, paper and read from right to left based on ancient Aztec, Mayan and Mixtec precedents, is a particularly successful artistic device for Enrique Chagoya, who combines diverse imagery and cultural references to create challenging, intricate, and richly layered objects that defy conclusive interpretation.

PERIMETER
PHOTOGRAPHS BY KEVIN J. MIYAZAKI
Perimeter is a project commissioned by the Haggerty Museum of Art at Marquette University, in which Kevin J. Miyazaki was invited to create new work addressing the topic of fresh water and the Great Lakes. The resulting photographs capture a contemporary portrait of Lake Michigan through images of everyday people whose lives are closest to it. Miyazaki photographed a diverse group of individuals who all have connections to the lake: residents, beachgoers, scientists, dock workers, environmentalists, artists, community leaders, commercial fishermen, ferry captains, boat builders, and surfers. He identified some subjects in advance, but most were people met while traveling, and always within eyeshot of the lake. In all, he photographed more than 200 people in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan.

THE FREEDOM PROJECT TEXT/CONTEXT AN EXHIBITION BY THE CHIPSTONE FOUNDATION
History—the study of past human events, words, and creations—is an imprecise science. The authoritative words we read in history books often do not fully correspond with reality. This inconsistency applies not only to the interpretive words written by historians, but also to the original quotes uttered by figures from the past. In this gallery, you encounter a small gathering of objects that are in one way or another linked to the laudable concept of human freedom. Yet their stories are complex and, at times, conflicted. They suggest that understanding the past begins when we consider multiple perspectives and voices—when we replace the idea of "reading history" with the broader concept of "exposing histories."

FREEDOM OF/FOR/TO PHOTOGRAPHY FROM THE PERMANENT COLLECTION
The exhibition Freedom Of/For/To is comprised of contemporary photographs from the museum's permanent collection that explore the fluid definition of the word and elicit questions about our collective (mis)understanding of freedom at home and abroad. The photographers represented in the exhibition, including Adam Bartos, Edward Burtynsky, William Clift, Stella Johnson, Miguel Rio Branco, Irina Rozovsky, and Joel Sternfeld, offer a variety of viewpoints that encourage us to consider how we define and protect freedom in a global context.

THENCEFORWARD, AND FOREVER FREE
Thenceforward, and Forever Free was presented as part of Marquette University’s Freedom Projecta yearlong commemoration of the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War. The Project explored the many histories and meanings of emancipation and freedom in the United States and beyond. The exhibition featured seven contemporary artists whose work deals with issues of race, gender, privilege, and identity, and more broadly conveys interpretations of the notion of freedom. Artists in Thenceforward were: Laylah Ali, Willie Birch, Michael Ray Charles, Gary Simmons, Elisabeth Subrin, Mark Wagner, and Kara Walker. The exhibition included works in diverse media, from Wagner’s 17-foot-tall collage made from 1,121 dollar bills to Simmons’s site-specific chalk drawing installation to Subrin’s two-channel, HD video. Paintings by Charles and Birch, drawings by Ali, and prints by Walker were also featured. Essayists for the exhibition catalogue are Dr. A. Kristen Foster, associate professor, Department of History, Marquette University, and Ms. Kali Murray, assistant professor, Marquette University Law School.

SELECTIONS FROM THE MARY AND MICHAEL J. TATALOVICH COLLECTION
Significant gifts by dedicated patrons have often been the building blocks of museum collections. The decision by Michael and Mary in 2010 to gift the entirety of their growing collection of 90 large-scale American prints significantly enriched the Haggerty Museum of Art's focus of works on paper as well as strengthened the holdings of postwar images by important American artists who took advantage of the print renaissance of the 1970s and 80s.

Selections From the Mary and Michael J. Tatalovich Collection museum guide

NYC JULY 4, 1981
PHOTOGRAPHS BY TOM ARNDT
On the night of July 4, 1981, photographer Tom Arndt came upon what he referred to as a "wall of sound" as he entered New York City's Little Italy and Chinatown. He saw garbage cans doused in gasoline, set aflame, and exploding with fireworks as people ran through the rain-soaked streets. The series of photographs Arndt took capture the intensity of the night's celebration of Independence Day, while simultaneously emitting a strange disconnect from the specifics of time and place. The photographs have an uneasy resemblance to contemporary images of urban warfare and ask the viewer to reconcile the duality of celebrating freedom versus fighting for freedom.

MARK RUWEDEL DUSK
The exhibition Mark Ruwedel Dusk presents eight black and white images that capture the degraded, fringe spaces of the high desert in Southern California. The photographs describe a landscape of simultaneous development and decay. Ruwedel chooses to photograph those houses that seem to be either once inhabited or incomplete constructions. Yet most of these houses occupy a middle zone, where the viewer is perplexed in wondering if they are coming or going, generative or degenerative. Photographed at dusk, the images record an atmosphere that is melancholic and sublime.

 

January 18 – May 20, 2012

THE EUROPEANS PHOTOGRAPHS BY TINA BARNEY
The Europeans is an intimate look at Europe’s grand families through the eyes of American photographer Tina Barney (b. 1945). In a series of large, lush and colorful portraits, Barney presents a side of the European gentry, initially unfamiliar to her (She grew up in New York and Rhode Island and began photographing friends and family as an artist in 1975). With this project, Barney embarked on her own modern version of the Grand Tour, or traditional trip around Europe,capturing those who would earlier have commissioned painted family portraits.

PHILIP GUSTON INEVITABLE FINALITY, THE GEMINI G.E.L PRINTS
The exhibition Philip Guston Inevitable Finality, The Gemini G.E.L. Prints features the 25 lithographs made in the last two years of the artist’s life. Printed at the Gemini G.E.L. studio in Los Angeles between 1980 and 1983, this series of lithographs has rarely been exhibited together. The Haggerty exhibition also marks the first time, since their production, that all 25 prints will be shown at a university museum. As a collection, they reveal Guston’s lifelong passion for drawing, and the importance he placed on the immediacy inherent in this mode of inquiry.

Philip Guston museum guide

SELECTIONS FROM THE MARY B. FINNIGAN COLLECTION
The Haggerty presents select works from the permanent collection purchased with funds provided by the Mary B. Finnigan Art Endowment Fund. A longtime supporter and Friend of the Haggerty Museum of Art board member, in 1991 Mary Finnigan gave a major gift to the museum to establish the art endowment fund, enabling the museum to collect significant 20th-Century American and European art works. Over the past twenty years, the Finnigan fund has brought 13 art gifts to the Haggerty collection. This mezzanine gallery exhibition will include paintings by Lovis Corinth, Jean Fautrier, Wifredo Lam, and Jacob Lawrence, among others. 

JOHN STEZAKER MARRIAGE
John Stezaker’s work re-examines the various relationships to the photographic image: as documentation of truth, purveyor of memory, and symbol of modern culture. In his collages, Stezaker appropriates images found in books, magazines, and postcards and uses them as ‘readymades’. Through his elegant juxtapositions, Stezaker adopts the content and contexts of the original images to convey his own witty and poignant meanings.

 

August 24 - December 31, 2011

CURRENT TENDENCIES II
Current Tendencies II featured 10 Milwaukee artists working in a variety of media including: photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, video and sculpture.  The exhibition presented many all-new, never-before-seen works, created specifically for the Haggerty Museum.  Each artist was paired with a Marquette professor who wrote a reflection of the artist’s work based on the professor’s area of expertise, creating dialogue between artist and scholar and connecting philosophy, theology, political science, communications, etc., to the works in the exhibition.

SEEING IN SEQUENCE
The nature of making art typically depends on creating iterations of a core concept or idea. The works included in Seeing in Sequence reveal some of the diversity of approaches available and exploited in the art-making practice. The repetition of visual elements, the use of narrative and the depiction of time were explored in this exhibition.

RUTH GROTENRATH & SCHOMER LICHTNER INTERIOR/EXTERIOR
The exhibition featured still life images by Grotenrath and scenes of Holy Hill by Lichtner. These pieces are part of a larger collection recently gifted to the Haggerty by the Kohler Foundation.
 

January 19 - May 22, 2011

THE TRUTH IS NOT IN THE MIRROR PHOTOGRAPHY AND A CONSTRUCTED IDENTITY

Rather than employing a camera to create an objective document, the artists in this exhibition are often involved in constructing narrative sequences that pose questions with open-ended outcomes. The artists in the exhibition include: Tina Barney, Claire Beckett, Valerie Belin, Dawoud Bey, Jesse Burke, Kelli Connell, Michael Corridore, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Rineke Dijkstra, Jason Florio, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Andy Freeberg, Lee Friedlander, David Hockney, Nikki S. Lee, Graham Miller, Martin Parr, Thomas Ruff, The Sartorialist, Alec Soth, Will Steacy, Larry Sultan and Mickalene Thomas.

HOLLYWOOD ICONS, LOCAL DEMONS GHANAIAN POPULAR PAINTINGS BY MARK ANTHONY
Ghanaian master artist Mark Anthony (born c.1943) is acclaimed for his signage-inspired paintings which attract audiences to itinerant theatrical performances or “concert parties” by local musicians and actors. Curated by Michelle Gilbert, visiting associate professor of Fine Arts at Trinity College in Hartford, CT, this provocative exhibit of contemporary African Art features Anthony’s colorful, bold eight foot square paintings on wood.

HOLINESS AND THE FEMININE SPIRIT PAINTINGS BY JANET MCKENZIE
Janet McKenzie's paintings celebrate all people, particularly African Americans and women. In 1999 her painting Jesus of the People won the National Catholic Reporter’s competition for a new image of Jesus. McKenzie subsequently received worldwide attention, both negative and positive, for her unconventional interpretation. Jesus of the People and 12 other works by McKenzie are included in the exhibition. 

THE BLACK PANTHERS MAKING SENSE OF HISTORY
Photographer Stephen Shames was allowed unprecedented access to the Black Panthers, thus enabling him to capture not only its public face—street demonstrations, protests, and militant posturing—but also unscripted behind-the-scenes moments, from private party meetings to Bobby Seale in prison.
