In February 2015, MMoCA will present an in-depth and multifaceted exhibition by Eric and Heather ChanSchatz, New York-based artists whose work has been shown across the United States and internationally. The artists’ first major museum survey, this exhibition will present large-scale paintings created in conjunction with international communities, including American soldiers in Iraq, coal miners in Pennsylvania, Cairo citizens in the Arab Spring, and stateless children in Thailand.
What's currently on view at MMoCA
StoryBook explores how stories are communicated in contemporary art. To illustrate the diversity of narrative methods, the exhibition draws upon works from MMoCA’s permanent collection by such artists as Robert Barnes, Richard Bosman, Roger Brown, Warrington Colescott, Todd Hido, and Erik Weisenburger, among others. Like the contemporary novel and related literary forms, contemporary art has sustained, challenged, and expanded traditional narrative structures.
Organized biennially, Young at Art presents works of art by Madison Metropolitan School District students in kindergarten through grade 12. The exhibition is the result of a long-standing collaboration between MMoCA and the school district’s Fine Arts Department. Each of Madison’s public school art teachers is invited to submit up to three works of art for the exhibition; these may include individual works as well as those made collaboratively.
