Inspired by Felix Gonzales-Torres’ enduring practice—which invites participation and ephemarility—the exhibition included a stack of printed posters featuring work by over 80 artists from the Strange Fire archive, which visitors will be encouraged to take. While In this body of mine is on view, Strange Fire released its 200th weekly interview; the archive is always available for free online at strangefirecollective.com.
Concurrently, a second exhibition, Strange Fire Collective: Jess T. Dugan, Zora J. Murff, and Rafael Soldi, was on view in the Perspectives Gallery at MIAD. Curated by Hamidah Glasgow, this exhibition represents the work of all four founding members.
These exhibitions and programming were generously supported by MIAD and a grant from the The Mary L. Nohl Fund of the Greater Milwaukee Foundation.
