Art of the Table at the MAM
The arrival of Robert Therrien’s Under the Table (1994) for a three-month stay in Windhover Hall of the Milwaukee Art Museum combined with the Nov. 18 lecture by famed Italian designer Alberto Alessi was enough for us to drop by and take a few press photos.
But to mark the occasion, the folks at MAM arranged for a special four-day installation in different areas of the permanent collection.
Art of the Table was a tribute to art and design arranging and displaying work by different designers from the area. Each surveyed the art environment they were given and created something that matched or complemented the work.
We also recommend the current European Design show continuing now until February, when the Frank Lloyd Wright retrospection begins. To top it off, the hallways of the Calatrava wing are filled with wild rubber tire sculptures by Chakaia Booker.
