EXHIBITION CLOSING RECEPTION & PANEL DISCUSSION
w/ Molly Hassler, Vaughan Larsen, & Valaria Tatera

6–8 PM with the discussion starting at 6:30 PM

Of Disappearance Suits, an ongoing series of works by Maria Gaspar examining marginalized identities, the Chicago-based artist writes: “As a first-generation Mexican American from an immigrant family, I am interested in understanding the relationship between the politicized body and rural, remote, or romantic landscapes. I create disappearance suits for a specific location/history/context and then, through a series of performative gestures, I contend with what’s there and what’s not there. In return, my body disappears and reappears.”

Curated by Molly Hassler and Marla Sanvick, There Again, the Disappearance continues the conversation of the (in)visibility of marginalized bodies present in Gaspar's Disappearance Suits through photographs and installations by Milwaukee artists Vaughan Larsen and Valaria Tatera. 

Please join us for a closing reception and discussion with the artists of these works that together hit an emotional pitch that is at once humorous, heart-wrenching, and strikingly beautiful.

This exhibition was made possible by the Greater Milwaukee Foundation's Mary L. Nohl fund.
