About the Book
In several instances the exhibition moves off the traditional wall onto the less ceiling: Janelle Gramling’s monochromatic Transmuted Vessels hangs quietly in contrast to Daniel Fleming’s riotously colorful painting From Dusk to Dawn. Work and Swim. Yevgeniya Kaganovich’s Tree Intuiting Chair: fractal lies on the floor like a toppled tree, its ever-smaller wooden chairs mimicking barren branches. And these are just a few examples of the breadth of forms and depth of thought exhibited in this year’s Biennial.
This juried exhibition is co-sponsored by Wisconsin Visual Artists (WVA) and MOWA. Three artists served as jurors: Amy Baur and Brian Boldon from In Plain Sight Art Studios in Minneapolis, specialize in architectural and sculptural commissions and mixed media public art. They worked together with Tylonn J. Sawyer, an educator and curator in Detroit who creates large scale public art.
