Show summary:
Easily Discarded was a CultureJam exhibition of 25 outstanding Milwaukee artists challenging dominant notions of the relationship between human beings and their physical and mental environment. Each artist using an element of something discarded within their work.

Highlights of the show will included an ancient scale that measures how much one’s combined soul and sins weigh by Anja NotanjaDella Wells bottles from her Little Colored Girl Series, “The strength and determination of black women is what drives the Little Colored Girl to combat the legacy a of American racism and sexism.” A work by C. Matthew Luther titled 104 E. Nash St., the former site of Advance Plating Company is no less an example of a residential chunk of land used as private toxic dump by the owners than a beacon of what commonly occurs in quiet neighborhoods around the city, state, and country. And last but not least, a piece by Jeff Redmon called Milwaukee Homeless, which is a statement about creating a healthy community in which everyone is valued and has a place to live.

The night will also included a special musical performance by Evan Christian and DJ sets by DJ Tiny Bubbles.

Highlights of the show included the Overpass Light Brigade with their piece entitled “PROTEST!” comprised of eight 2ft x 3ft LED letters. Elias Vallejo’s “Freedom tower,” the 15 foot installation is a commentary of the state of surveillance in 2014 America and the public’s impassivity towards it. Pfister AiR finalist, Jeff Redmon’s Scott Walker inspired piece titled “Street Walker,” which makes an obvious statement about Wisconsin Governor’s pay-to-play approach to politics. And RedLine Mentor, Dara Larson’s work called “New Ownership Society – Zombie Home Milwaukee,” where she considers the convoluted pathways to home ownership thought of in the past as a natural conclusion of a strong work ethic and the American Dream.
