On Friday, December 4, 2015, Linda Brazeau, Director of the UWM Art Collection and Galleries, Christa Story, Curator of the UWM Art Collection and Galleries, and Jackie Murphy, Fall 2015 UWM Art History Gallery Graduate Intern, traveled to Edgewood College in Madison, WI for Fall 2015 Curator’s Conversations.
Directors, Curators, and Gallerists from Wisconsin gathered to discuss current and upcoming projects, and issues facing the local art community. Dominating the conversation was the implementation and impact social media has on our venues. The group also considered curating interactive environments.
As part of the conference they journeyed to the Edgewood College Gallery to see the current exhibition, Paint, in which three artists displayed diverse approaches to the handling of paint, materiality and content.
