From Here to There: Alec Soth's America

One of the most compelling voices in contemporary photography, Alec Soth captures offbeat images that uncover narratives of the American experience. From Here to There: Alec Soth’s America, the artist’s first major traveling survey in the United States, will be on view at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art from September 13, 2014 through January 4, 2015. This exhibition, which was organized by the Walker Art Center in Soth’s hometown of Minneapolis, explores 15 years of Soth’s career, from 1995 to 2010.

Narayan Mahon: Lands in Limbo

In December 2014, the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art will present the first museum exhibition showcasing Narayan Mahon’s photographic journey through the unrecognized countries of Abkhazia, Northern Cyprus, Trandsniestra, Nagorno Karabakh, and Somaliland. With a selection of photographs from each of the artist’s five geographically-based series, Narayan Mahon: Lands in Limbo explores the day-to-day realities of living in countries that remain unacknowledged by the larger international community.
