The CDMC hosted a conversation around Beth Lipman’s House Album, a short film by Atesh Atici 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 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.
