Processed Views: Surveying the Industrial Landscape Saint John's On The Lake in Milwaukee | July 18–October 8, 2019

Photographers Barbara Ciurej and Lindsay Lochman have collaborated for more than thirty years on projects that challenge the viewer to think differently. In Processed Views: Surveying the Industrial Landscape, the dynamic duo reinterprets the work of nineteenth-century photographer Carleton Watkins whose western landscapes were both aesthetic documentation and advertisements for the bounty of America. Ciurej and Lochman use mass-produced, processed foods such as marshmallows, potato chips, cereal, and gelatin to recreate these landscapes, forcing the viewer to reexamine notions of consumption, progress, and changing landscapes—both natural and societal.

Like many Wisconsin artists before him, Wolfgang Klein was born in Germany and later immigrated to Milwaukee. A student of German Expressionist master Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Klein was an educator in Berlin before relocating to the United States in 1954. He started working in advertising and then taught for many years at the YWCA in Milwaukee and Marquette University. Klein’s woodblock prints reveal both Kirchner’s stylistic influence and Klein’s deep connection to Milwaukee.
