Current Tendencies III: Artists from Milwaukee features the work
of nine emerging, mid-career, and established Milwaukee artists working in a
variety of media including photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, and
sculpture. The artists participating in the exhibition are Tyanna Buie, William
E. Carpenter, Evan Gruzis, Jon Horvath, Mark Mulhern, Jean Roberts Guequierre,
Cassandra Smith and Jessica Steeber (in collaboration), and Jason S.
Each installment of the Current Tendencies exhibition series has differed
slightly, and for this edition participating artists responded to work(s) from
the permanent collection of the Haggerty Museum. Each artist or team was asked
to select at least one permanent collection work and create an installation that
places the work(s) in dialogue with their own. This exhibition model aims to
elicit fresh perspectives about the Milwaukee artists’ work by making conceptual
or aesthetic connections to work from the permanent collection. The work of each
artist or team is exhibited in discrete spaces in the main floor and lower-level
This exhibition and accompanying programs are sponsored in part by the
Friends of the Haggerty, the Joan Pick Endowment Fund, the Marquette University
Andrew W. Mellon Fund, and the Milwaukee Arts Board and the Wisconsin Arts Board
with funds from the State of Wisconsin.

Re-Seeing the Permanent Collection The Viewer’s
August 21– December 22, 2013
This exhibition highlights works from
the Haggerty’s permanent collection selected by Marquette faculty, staff, and
students. The featured work represents a wide range of styles, processes, and
media created by Renaissance to contemporary artists from diverse locales.
Project participants wrote a brief reflection on the piece they chose,
expressing why they were drawn to the work and, in the case of some professors,
how the work is used in their teaching practices. A catalogue containing the
essays and images is available for museum visitors. The reflections also serve
as wall text for the exhibited works of art and are available online
through the Haggerty’s website.
