“C is for Conversation”
2021 MARNsalon Final Exhibition
September 24 to November 2, 2021
MARN is pleased to present “C is for Conversation” – how conversations between the artists and critics affected the creative processes – the 2021 MARNsalons Final Exhibition running September 24 to Nov 2, 2021 within the MARN ART + CULTURE HUB.
The exhibition features the work of artists who participated in the 2021 MARNsalon Program and members of the 2021 MARNsalons Advisory Committee. The 10 Salon Program Artists engaged in deep conversations and exchanged ideas with 3 local and 3 national critics during virtual studio/workspace visits from February to June, 2021. Majority of work featured in the exhibition was created after the conclusion of the artists and critics dialogues.
Exhibiting artists include Katie Avila Loughmiller, Deborah Brooks, Alexa Hollywood, Carley Knight, Frank Korb, Lennis Mathews, Meghan Burke McGarth, Reid Sancken, Francesca Simonite, Katherine Steichen Rosing, Valaria Tatera, and Marian JA Vieux.
MARNsalons is a professional development program for artists, curators, critics, and cultural workers in related disciplines that brings national and international curators and critics to Milwaukee for a series of in-depth engagements with members of the local arts community. The 2021 Season was organized by Nina Ghanbarzadeh, the 2021 Program Coordinator, and Michele St. Amour, MARN’s Director of Programming.
MARN would like to thank Bader Philanthropies, the Greater Milwaukee Foundation – Mary L. Nohl Fund and Milwaukee County Cares Act for their generous support to make the 2021 MARNsalons series possible. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Milwaukee Arts Board and the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin.
