A new exhibit is coming to The Warehouse in the Menomonee River Valley Design District. On Belonging—an exhibition exploring themes of identity, race, and history—shows March 8 through May 31.
A related performance installation, Moving Archive – What is Remembered, is set for 7 p.m. Saturday March 9. Choreographed and codirected by Maria Gillespie, the performance will intersect with the On Belonging installation and feature composer and cellist Janet Schiff with performers Maria Gillespie, Chanteé Kelly and Joelle Worm.
The continuing exhibit,On Belonging, is the culmination of collaborations started in June 2017 between two nationally recognized artists—photographer Lois Bielefeld and interdisciplinary artist Nirmal Raja. Bielefeld is a Milwaukee native, and Chennai-born Raja has lived in Milwaukee for 27 years. Products of their two collaborations to be exhibited at The Warehouse explore different perspectives on the city they live in.
Both events are free and open to the public. Attending the performance requires a reservation.
