The CDMC will host a conversation around Beth Lipman’s House Album, a short film by Atesh Atici now playing in the Milwaukee Film Festival. The film explores the metaphorical possibilities that are developed through Wisconsin-based artist Beth Lipman‘s installation House Album, which is now on view at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) in New York City as part of a mid-career retrospective of Lipman’s work titled Beth Lipman: Collective Elegy which was curated by MAD Collections Curator Samantha De Tillio. Set in the historic Pabst Mansion, the last extant mansion along what was once Milwaukee’s Grand Avenue, the film explores how material things move through time and accrue new meanings in new contexts.

Join the artist, filmmaker, the MAD Collections Curator, SoHE Design Studies Emerita Professor Beverly Gordon, and CDMC Visiting Executive Director Sarah Anne Carter, for a special screening of the film and discussion about it on Wednesday, May 19 at 4:30pm CST. The conversation will be moderated by CDMC Producer-in-Residence Gianofer Fields.

Event was free and open to the public thanks to the support of The Anonymous Fund and the Chipstone Foundation, but registration was required for the Zoom webinar link.
