MOWA On The Lake
MOWA collaborates with Milwaukee’s premiere lakefront retirement community Saint John’s On The Lake to further awareness of Wisconsin art and artists. The gallery features four exhibits each year and takes part in Milwaukee’s Gallery Night and Day.
Saint John's On The Lake | Processed Views: Surveying the Industrial Landscape
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
, 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.
