For the first time in MOWA’s history, all four changing exhibition spaces will be dedicated to the work of a single artist—Tom Bamberger. At 68, Bamberger has expertly embraced a number of roles in his life—teacher, philosopher, curator of photography, urban design critic— but he is first and foremost a photographer of national significance. Hyperphotographic is the artist’s first major retrospective and a celebration of his recent gift to the museum of almost four hundred photographs.

Hyperphotographic is the artist’s first major retrospective and a celebration of his recent gift to the Museum of Wisconsin Art of almost four hundred photographs. This stunning 124-page, full-color catalogue accompanies the exhibition and includes essays by Laurie Winters, Debra Brehmer, and J Tyler Friedman.
