María Magdalena Campos-Pons: Sea and Self
August 20 – December 19, 2021
Haggerty Museum of Art, Marquette University
Milwaukee, Wisconsin

I come from an island. Continental experiences and borders are so meaningful, and to be surrounded by water is quite a unique and magnificently humbling thing. There is no place to go except to the sea.

– María Magdalena Campos-Pons

This compelling exhibition features artworks produced by María Magdalena Campos-Pons (b. 1959, Matanzas, Cuba) from the late 1990s through the present that meditate on the sea, a constant theme in the artist’s work. The selection includes photographs, photographic installations, and a new series of drawings. The presentation of “María Magdalena Campos-Pons: Sea and Self” at the Haggerty Museum of Art is made possible through the generous support of Presenting Sponsor the Lacey Sadoff Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Greater Milwaukee Foundation.
