About the Book
Hyperphotographic celebrates the work of Tom Bamberger, who has expertly embraced a number of roles in his life—teacher, philosopher, curator of photography, urban design critic—but he is first and foremost a photographer of national significance. Hyperphotographic is the artist’s first major retrospective and a celebration of his recent gift to the Museum of Wisconsin Art of almost four hundred photographs. This stunning 124-page, full-color catalogue accompanies the exhibition and includes essays by Laurie Winters, Debra Brehmer, and J Tyler Friedman.
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.
