Artwork with wavy lines formed by dots.
Michelle Grabner, Untitled, c. 2005. Painting, 44 x 45 inches. Gift of Nancy Mladenoff and J.J. Murphy, Collection of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art.


Inspired by the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art’s founding collection gifts from mathematicians, imaginary i focuses on how artists and mathematicians both utilize constructs of the imaginary to not only envision the future but also reclaim, retrace, and/or reveal patterns of history. It will include works in the Museum collection paired with select contemporary artists, including loaned works as well as commissions, to draw out paths of dialogue over time and space.
