The 2007 Wisconsin Triennial will open on the evening of May 4 at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art. Although the exhibition marks the eleventh statewide survey undertaken by the museum since 1978, it is the first to be exhibited in the Museum’s expanded space within Overture Center for the Arts. Forty-three individual artists and three collaborative teams will display works in MMoCA’s Main Galleries, State Street Gallery, and New Media Gallery, as well as the Museum’s Lobby, Rooftop Sculpture Garden, and other public spaces.

The 125+ works that make up the 2007 Triennial include site-specific pieces constructed at the museum, as well as finished works transported from artists’ studios. Assemblage, installation, paintings, photographs, sculpture, sound, and video are among the mediums represented. The exhibition also demonstrates a wide range of materials and diverse approaches to process and content.
