Faculty Art in Three Exhibitions

b2ap3_thumbnail_Beyer-MLK_jail.jpgProfessor Ali Beyer has been featured in two recent exhibitions in Madison, Wisconsin. The Social Justice Center-Jackie Macaulay Gallery presented "America: Who Are We?" in January-February 2017. The show included Beyer's aquatint etching entitled,"Martin Luther King, Jr. in the Birmingham Jail (1963)."

A second show, "The First 100 Days," opened April 29th at Gallery 1308 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Beyer's 2017 mixed media collage is entitled, "The Bird's the Word."

A Fall 2017 exhibit of faculty works created in 2016 will be presented by the Hokin Gallery of Columbia College-Chicago. Two of Beyer's four pieces to be shown include the self-portrait silkscreens shown here.

Beyer says this: After being away from my hometown for over a decade I moved back to Madison, Wisconsin, about a year ago. Before I started getting my home studio set up I began printmaking at Wheelhouse Studios on the campus of the University of Wisconsin. I had attended school at the university and still had my campus I.D. from the 1990s so I thought it was fitting to use that photo to create a self-portrait of myself 20 years later while I was literally revisiting spaces from my youth. I’m interested in autobiographical work and how memory intersects with identity.  Although this work stands alone as a self-portrait capturing a specific moment in time, it also contains aspects of this larger interest in memory and the autobiographical narrative that much of my work is concerned with.
