Land · scape: Redefining Landscapes from the UWM Art Collection explores the subjectivity of landscapes in art through four lenses. The exhibition engages with concepts of the deconstructed landscape, the ephemeral landscape, landscapes and power, and bodies as landscapes. Through these different explorations and their unique experiences in the space, visitors will be challenged to view landscapes in new ways and to view the gallery itself as a landscape.

Opening April 18, 2019, 5-7PM
Curator talk at 5:30

Curated by the graduate students of Museum Studies II (ARTH 704)
