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.

Into the Woods is the artist’s first full-career retrospective that will include representative works from every period of his career, including never before seen early paintings and drawings as well a number of his large-scale migration series paintings from the last decade. In anticipation of the exhibition, MOWA commissioned Nin Gassinsibingwe, the most recent and in many ways most spectacular painting in his ongoing migration series. The Ojibwe title translates as: “I Wipe My Tears.” The exhibition is accompanied by a major gift from the artist of almost two hundred large-format photographs, prints, and drawings which will also be on view. The exhibition is curated by Executive Director Laurie Winters.
