July 10–October 19, 2014
Postcards from America: Milwaukee presents the work of eleven Magnum photographers, Bruce Gilden, Jim Goldberg, Susan Meiselas, Martin Parr, Paolo Pellegrin, Mark Power, Alessandra Sanguinetti, Jacob Aue Sobol, Alec Soth, Zoe Strauss, and Donovan Wylie, who visited Wisconsin between August 2013 and April 2014. Interested in collaboration and experimentation, these exciting artists share their distinctive perspectives on subjects ranging from the State Fair and highway infrastructure to students in Black River Falls and women laborers. Photographs from the project will become part of the Museum’s Collection.
Postcards from America is generously supported at the Milwaukee Art Museum by the Herzfeld Foundation. Additional support provided by the Milwaukee Art Museum’s Photography Council and Pier 24 Photography.
