About the Book
For more than thirty years, J. Shimon and J. Lindemann have collaborated to make photographs that respond to Wisconsin as both a place and a state of mind. There’s a Place: A Three Decade Survey of Photographs by J. Shimon & J. Lindemann is the first museum retrospective and the largest exhibition of their work to date. Blending historic and contemporary photographic techniques, the artists have created a compelling, at times melancholy, body of work that stands as a record of their time.
This catalogue has been published on the occasion of the exhibition There’s a Place: A Three Decade Survey of Photographs by J. Shimon & J. Lindemann organized by the Museum of Wisconsin Art.
The new Museum of Wisconsin Art (MOWA) in West Bend, Wisconsin is one of the top regional art museums in the country. It is the primary venue nationally for the exhibition of historic and contemporary Wisconsin art, including holdings of more than 300 artists, over 4,000 works of art, and a sizeable archive/ library. Each year, MOWA presents 12-14 exhibitions, numerous weekly educational and public programs targeted to all ages and interest levels, and a series of special events. In April 2013, MOWA celebrated a major milestone with the opening of a new building on the Milwaukee River that doubled the gallery square footage and expanded its capacity to offer public programs and educational activities.
