Resistance, Protest, ResilienceResistance, Protest, Resilience

Featuring over forty photographs from the collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Art, this exhibition traces protests in select twentieth-century movements and events that triggered important social and political changes, among them the Civil Rights Movement, the Iranian Revolution, and the 1984 Democratic National Convention. The exhibition’s presentation in Milwaukee aligns with 200 Nights of Freedom, a broad community-driven initiative commemorating the 50th anniversary of Milwaukee’s Fair Housing Marches.


(Self)Representation: Portraits from the Permanent CollectionRepresenting Self: Portraits from the Permanent Collection

This exhibition examines the evolution of portraiture as a vehicle for the representation of self. Works ranging from early sixteenth-century society portraits to large-format contemporary photographs explore ways that artists convey information about their sitters, and themselves.



Collection Spotlight: Environmental HealthCollection Spotlight: Environmental Health

This installation of contemporary photographs by artists Edward Burtynsky, Jason Larkin, and Richard Misrach addresses issues of environmental health and justice, with particular attention to the irreparable damage inflicted by fossil fuel and mining industries. The exhibition is a response to the 2017-18 Marquette Forum theme Fractured: Health and Equity – Local/Global.




The Haggerty Museum of Art’s institutional genetic code is formed by a collection of works of art acquired over more than a century.  This spring the museum continues HMA DNA: Collection Highlights, an ongoing exhibition of work from the museum’s collection by artists including Francesco Trevisani, George Grosz, Barbara Morgan, Wifredo Lam, Salvador Dali, Chuck Close, and LaToya Ruby Frazier.
