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 Notanja. Della 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.
Easily Discarded will took place at 228 S. 1st. St., Milwaukee, WI 53404, on Saturday, Nov. 22nd, 2014, 7pm – 12am. One night only!
