ON VIEW IN THE HOUSE

Through November 11, 2012

Inside/Outside: Will Pergl + Shona Macdonald
Striations and Structure
More information: http://www.lyndensculpturegarden.org/exhibitions/insideoutside-will-pergl-shona-macdonald

In this new iteration of the Inside/Outside series, we present two artists, Will Pergl and Shona Macdonald, who are interested in creating “resonant geographies.” They locate themselves in place and space by paying attention to what is around them, and each artist’s work is marked by a certain attentiveness to the mundane, the quotidian—the physical structures that form the background of our visual lives. In their current work, the prosaic, the man-made, and the humdrum are transformed into intricate and compelling objects. Will Pergl translates and elevates urban structures and objects--fire hydrants, scaffolding--into lyrical, rhythmic forms. Electrical plants, water towers, and propane tanks stranded in the desolate New Mexican desert inform Shona Macdonald’s work, created during a year-long residency in the isolated Southeastern corner of that state. Pergl has created a large-scale outdoor sculpture for the exhibition, as well as two indoor sculptures. Macdonald is showing five paintings and two floor pieces indoors.


Ongoing

Yevgeniya Kaganovich: grow

More information: http://lyndensculpturegarden.org/exhibitions/artist-residence-yevgeniya-kaganovich

Yevgeniya Kaganovich’s durational installation, grow, has begun to occupy Lynden’s interstitial spaces. The plant-like forms, made from manipulated recycled plastic bags, will grow and spread over the period of a year or so. Their growth rate is determined by the number of bags accumulated in an official recycling bin at Lynden. “My goals for grow,” says Kaganovich, “are to transform an artificial manipulated material into a seemingly unchecked, feral, opportunistic growth; to visualize and punctuate reuse by juxtaposing it with slow, methodical, labor-intensive making that plays with control, 'craftiness,' and precision; and to speculate about how artificial lifecycles are sustained.” Various events are planned throughout the project period (see Workshops, below), and grow will gradually spread to other locations.


ON VIEW ON THE GROUNDS

Roy Staab’s temporary, site-specific work, Chiral Formation, remains on view in the Little Lake. It was created in July during a two-week residency at Lynden.

Some of Colombe Marcasiano’s occasional works—a tree full of tree houses, a brick sculpture entitled 32 Bricks for 32 Days, and Red Branch Stone--made during her month-long residency, also remain on view.

CLASSES & WORKSHOPS

grow WORKSHOP WITH YEVGENIYA KAGANOVICH

Saturday, November 17, 2012 – 12 noon-5 pm

Free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden.

More information: http://lyndensculpturegarden.org/calendar/grow-workshop-yevgeniya-kaganovich

Yevgeniya Kaganovich and her student assistants will take up residence in the studio all afternoon to make the next “planting” of grow, Kaganovich’s durational installation. grow is a system of interconnected plant-like forms simulating a self-propagating organism in multiple stages of development. Created from a singular material, recycled plastic bags, the system grows over time, its growth rate determined by the number of bags accumulated in our official recycling bin. Drop in to watch or participate as Kaganovich fuses the layers of plastic to create a surface similar to leather or skin, molds the skin into plant-like volumes, stuffs the volumes with more bags, and connects the forms with plastic bag “thread.”


WILLOW REED BASKET WEAVING

Sunday, November 18, 2012 – 12:30-2:30 pm
Free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden, but space is limited. Please pre-register by contacting Jeremy Stepien at jstepien@lyndensculpturegarden.org or 414.446.8481.


More information: http://lyndensculpturegarden.org/calendar/willow-reed-basket-weaving

Celebrate autumn by learning a traditional twining weave to make a garlic basket for your home. We will use a combination of willow from the sculpture garden, basket-weaving reed, and raffia to add color and texture to the basic weave. No experience required; this workshop is for ages 12 and up.


COMING UP IN DECEMBER

We’ll start the month with a concert by I Cellisti, the String Academy of Wisconsin’s cello ensemble, on December 1. We’ll be making terrarium pendants at our Holiday Giftmaking Workshop on December 2, and enjoying the last dog day of the year on December 16. We’ll be watching the elements, too, to see if iceskating or cross country skiing will be part of our winter activities.

FILM: LOCALLY GROWN

AS GOES JANESVILLE

UWM Union Theatre, 2200 E. Kenwood Blvd.

FREE

Information: (414) 229-4070 or uniontheatre.uwm.edu

As Goes Janesville, 2011 Nohl Fellow Brad Lichtenstein’s documentary, catapults viewers into America's debate over the future of our middle class--a debate that became a battle over unions in the normally tranquil state of Wisconsin. It tells the tale from the inside, following three years in the lives of laid-off workers trying to reinvent themselves; business leaders aligned with Governor Scott Walker to promote a pro-business agenda to woo companies to town; and a state senator trying to protect workers' rights and bring peace to his warring state. As goes Janesville, so goes America, a country mired in polarization and falling short of the American Dream. The UWM Urban Studies Program has arranged a reception prior to the film in the Union Art Gallery and a panel discussion afterward.

SARAH GAIL LUTHER: A GUIDE TO THE FIELD GUIDES

Inova, 2155 N. Prospect Ave.

FREE

2011 Nohl Fellow Sarah Luther introduces us to her series of hand-drawn field guides, part of her project to expand her knowledge of her own city, Milwaukee. Luther has spent the past year exploring hundreds of abandoned plots, eventually selecting five pieces of land for their particular feel, interest, or beauty. She then memorialized each plot in a field guide. The guides ponder the land’s history, surrounding neighborhood, points of interest or curiosity—and then ask how each plot could be transformed into a public space.
