What Is The Matter? (free)

  • Central Library 201 West Mifflin Street Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

Photographer and installation artist Jennifer Bastian has made several distinctive marks on Madison's art community this year. Her June exhibition at Arts + Literature Lab, Between, turned part of the east side gallery into something approaching a literal blanket fort, crammed with bedding and other lovingly worn-in domestic objects. Bastian created a zine this summer to pair with Half-Stack Sessions' efforts to make Madison's music community more inclusive. She contributed to the Makeshift Festival's outdoor installations in August, and is currently the artist-in-residence at the Madison Public Library's Bubbler space. Her Bubbler project shares some of Between's saturated coziness, but also centers around literal problem-solving, inviting visitors to try and work out problems in their lives through conversation, hands-on artwork, and even cards where people write down problems and solutions. A Bubbler residency is always technically an open house to some extent or other, but at this event, Bastian will continue to explore the themes of the residency by inviting visitors to participate in a potluck dinner. —Scott Gordon
