Wisconsin Triennial

The Wisconsin Triennial continues the exhibition series begun with the Wisconsin Biennial.  In addition to switching to a triennial schedule, the selection process and number of artists selected changed in 1987.  The selection committee chose to exhibit a smaller number of artists, allowing display space for several works per artist. The smaller number of exhibiting artists means that the catalogues for the triennials contain more information on each artist, along with a black and white print of their work.  Biographic information includes lists of past exhibitions and collections holding work, professional positions, brief discussion of the artist’s work and a bibliography.  Exhibition catalogues are listed below by triennial year with a list of included artists and if applicable mention of any extra materials.

This is an online digital full text collection containing the catalogues of every University of Wisconsin-Madison Art Department Faculty Exhibit.  The exhibits began in 1974 as a collaborative effort between the Elvehjem Art Center, later the Elvehjem Museum of Art, now the Chazen Museum of Art. Each catalogue contains comments by the department chair and the museum director, photos of and biographical information on included faculty, and artist’s statements and photographs of exhibited works.  The collection can be browsed by catalogue or there is a full text search.  The 1999 catalogue contains Arthur Hove’s essay, “Exploring Artistic Potential: An Informal History of the Department of Art”, pages 11- 19.  Full text of Hove’s essay, “Taking Inventory: Women Faculty in the Art Department” is part of the collection as well.  Exhibit catalogues are also available in print form in the Kohler Art Library.  A summary of each exhibit’s catalogue is given below, arranged chronologically, along with a list of artists in that year’s exhibition.  Citations for both print and digital formats are provided for each catalogue.
