Today @ the Milwaukee Art Museum

The Milwaukee Art Museum’s new exhibit . . .

Art Review

It would be an error to say photographers Johnie Shimon and Julie Lindemann are the “J & J” of Manitowoc, Wis., even though, like G & G (British art duo Gilbert & George), they’re close as twins. The pair got together during their student years in Madison, and they stuck together after graduation, setting off to bite the Big Apple. After a year, they returned to Wisconsin. Following their careers for 25 years tempts me to say that their show in the Koss Gallery at the Milwaukee Art Museum (Aug. 14 through Nov. 30) will be the peak of their combined efforts. The opportunity to exhibit 43 portraits of those who have passed through their lives is indeed a mark of accomplishment and the show

Art Review

"Are you angry or are you boring?" asks one of the pieces included in the new “Gilbert & George” exhibit at the Milwaukee Art Museum (MAM). The idea that nothing worthwhile exists outside these two states might explain why the work of the artistic duo has become progressively larger and louder over time, often resorting to such malodorous mediums as feces, sperm and spit. Is this preponderance of bodily fluids meant as an avowal of the artists' own mortality or simply a desperate attempt to counter the stultifying effects of old age and withered rebellion? The answer, like the meaning of their work, remains elusive . . .
