Current Tendencies II features 10 Milwaukee artists working in a variety of media including: photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, video and sculpture. The exhibition presents many all-new, never-before-seen works, created specifically for the Haggerty Museum. Each artist was paired with a Marquette professor who wrote a reflection of the artist’s work based on the professor’s area of expertise, creating dialogue between artist and scholar and connecting philosophy, theology, political science, communications, etc., to the works in the exhibition.
Artists featured in Current Tendencies II include: Reginald Baylor, Mark Brautigam, Julian Correa, Lisa Hecht, Sharon Kerry-Harlan, Luc Leplae, Will Pergl, Nathaniel Stern and Jessica Meuninck-Ganger, and Jordan Waraksa. Marquette professors participating in the Current Tendencies II writing project include: Dr. Bonnie Brennen (Journalism), Dr. Roberta Coles (Social and Cultural Sciences), Dr. Ryan Hanley (Political Science), Dr. Thomas Jablonsky (History/Institute for Urban Life), Dr. Jason Ladd (Music), Dr. Richard Lewis (Educational Opportunity Program), Dr. Danielle Nussberger (Theology), Dr. Melissa Shew (Philosophy), and Dr. Larry Watson (English).
