Dressing the Monument Installation

October 7, 2011

Artists David Robbins (ably assisted by Alec Regan of American Fantasy Classics), Tobias Madison, Kaspar Müller, Hannah Weinberger, Lucas Knipscher, Anicka Yi, Matt Sheridan Smith, Nicholas Frank, Michelle Grabner, and Brad Killam were on hand in the period leading up to the opening to create and install work for Dressing the Monument. Tobias Madison, David Robbins and curators Piper Marshall and John Riepenhoff gave talks at MIAD (some hosted by Nicholas Frank), and several of the artists talked to visitors to Lynden, including a tour comprised of Katie Martin's students from the UWM Peck School of the Arts.

One and a half of the Madison/Müller swings were installed in the dark with the help of their fellow artists and friends; everything was bright in the gallery where Lynden staff members Sergio Salinas and Patrick Kernan assisted with the installation.
