"Truman Lowe: Remembrance, a Site-Specific Installation"
2001-06-03 until 2001-08-19
Madison Art Center
Madison, WI, USA United States of America

The Madison Art Center presents a site-specific installation by Truman Lowe June 3 through August 19, 2001. Using wood as a primary material, Lowe creates sculptures that reference the myths and stories of his Ho-Chunk heritage. Based on the Woodlands landscape, his work explores the patterns of nature as it responds to generations of human intervention. Lowe's installation for the Madison Art Center will consist of four large-scale elements including an architecturally inspired structure and several new wall reliefs.

Lowe's recent work demonstrates a heightened sensitivity to the natural environment and deepening sense of place. Over the past decade his focus has shifted from exquisitely crafted objects to temporary installations created in response to indoor or outdoor sites. The artist has remarked, As a woodland Indian, I can't ignore my environment . . . that's what my work reflects.

Truman Lowe has exhibited at major native and non-native venues both nationally and internationally. These include the Heard Museum in Phoenix, the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indian and Western Art in Indianapolis, the National Gallery of Art in Ottawa, Ontario, and the White House Sculpture Garden. Lowe has taught at the University of Wisconsin-Madison for over 25 years.

Truman Lowe: Remembrance was organized by the Madison Art Center. Major funding has been provided by the Dane County Cultural Affairs Commission with additional funds from the Madison Community Foundation and Overture Foundation. Additional funding has been provided by The Art League of the Madison Art Center; the Madison Art Center's 2001-2002 Sustaining Benefactors; and a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin.
