Revolution! – CultureJam MKE #5
This no-holds-barred indie art series showcases outstanding regional artists.
Revolution is the fifth installment in the provocative CultureJam MKE series. The no-holds-barred indie art series showcases outstanding regional artists challenging dominant notions of the relationship between human beings and their physical and mental environments. In this round curator Jeff Redmon brings together 30+ artists to start a much needed REVOLUTION, providing a thought provoking experience for viewers. “Artists must be at the frontline of progressive change.” – Waldek Dynerman
A few highlights of the exhibition include:
Steve Vande Zande’s Mixed Media, Wall Relief titled “Justice Scale”, is an object oriented anthology that brings together found materials from around the United States. The materials used and their visual purpose to ask the viewer to reflect and self-regulate their internal bias and assumptions of how they are just or unjust.
“Revolution of Words” by Melissa Dorn Richards is a pyramid shaped sculpture about how we talk to each other, and ourselves, and how we can transform a culture by mutual respect.
In “Transforming Cynicism into Revolution”, Marc Tasman takes selected lyrics from songs of Leonard Cohen’s 1988 album, “I’m Your Man” and mashes them together in charcoal drawings on paper with contemporary political figures.
Valaria Tatera’s piece “Good to the Last Drop! Water, Oil and Blood” is about selling our water rights in Wisconsin but also her reaction as a descendent of the Ojibwa Bad River tribe to the destruction of sacred sites especially in the wake of North Dakota.
