Petite Posters: Jules Chéret and Le Courrier français
June 28–November 17, 2019
European Art Galleries, Level 2, Gallery S202

From its first issue, in 1884, the weekly journal Le Courrier français championed advertising. Jules Chéret (1836–1932), considered the father of the poster, held a prominent place in its pages. The paper publicized and reproduced Chéret’s poster designs, and in return, the artist created advertisements for companies that financed it. The more than twenty posters on display in the gallery explore this reciprocal relationship, which proved mutually beneficial. The posters featured are drawn from Susee and James Wiechmann’s promised gift to the Museum of nearly six hundred Chéret works.

Nares: Moves
June 14–October 6, 2019
Baker/Rowland Galleries

Nares: Moves is the first retrospective on the contemporary New York-based artist James Nares (b. 1953) and reveals a significant career bringing motion into the spotlight. The exhibition is organized by the Milwaukee Art Museum and will premiere June 14 to October 6, 2019. In addition to being the first retrospective for Nares, it is also the first to explore in depth the artist’s films as central to his artistic practice. The exhibition and accompanying catalogue celebrate the key projects of this prolific, perpetual inventor and establish Nares as an important contemporary artist.

Audio: A Conversation with the Artist
The recording here features Marcelle Polednik, PhD, Donna and Donald Baumgartner Director of the Milwaukee Art Museum and curator of the exhibition, and the artist Jamie Nares discussing the exhibition Nares: Moves. It is unedited. A shorter version produced to accompany the exhibition is on the audio guide on-site, available for $5 from the admissions desks.

Charles Radtke: Contained
April 19–August 25, 2019
Bradley Family Gallery

Charles Radtke: Contained is the first retrospective exhibition for the renowned furniture maker based in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. The artist’s cabinets, tables, and chairs reflect his meticulous attention to detail. Several pieces have interiors that are more intricately designed than the exteriors, or have hidden compartments in which Radtke has placed something personally meaningful. Radtke’s explorations into the function of the cabinet as a container lend his work a conceptual component that relates to contemporary sculpture.

Sara Cwynar: Image Model Muse
March 8–July 21, 2019
Herzfeld Center for Photography and Media Arts

Canadian-born, Brooklyn-based artist Sara Cwynar (b. 1985) explores through film and photography the subjects of color and design, the ways that they operate politically, socially, and historically, particularly in the context of how we conceptualize beauty. This first US solo museum exhibition for the artist presents three of her latest films—Soft Film (2016), Rose Gold (2017), and Cover Girl (2018)—together with photographs from her ongoing Tracy series.
