Saturday November 8
Lise Haller Baggesen with Joshua Demaree
Mothernism Storytime

Join us for Mothernism Storytime, a reading and discussion examining the ‘mother-shaped hole in contemporary art discourse’, with Lise Haller Baggesen and Joshua Demaree. ‘Mothernism Storytime’ is presented in connection with Haller Baggesen’s presentation at Vox Fourth Wall this November.

Lise Haller Baggesen (1969) left her native Denmark in 1992 to study painting at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. In 2008 she relocated to Chicago with her family, where she completed her MA in Visual and Critical Studies at the School of the art Institute in 2013, for which she received a fellowship award.

In the meantime, her work evolved from a traditional painting practice toward a hybrid practice including curating, writing and immersive multimedia installation work.

Her work has been shown in galleries and museums in Europe and outside, including w139 in Amsterdam, Overgaden in Copenhagen, the Municipial Museum in the Hague, MoMu in Antwerp, the Wurttembergischem Kunstverein in Stuttgart and CAEC, the Chinese European Art Center in Xiamen, The Poor Farm in Manawa, WI and 6018 North and MCA in Chicago, IL.

Joshua Michael Demaree was born and raised in the Pennsylvania mid state, Joshua is both a licensed driver and a dedicated taxpayer. He holds a BA from the University of Pittsburgh in Film Studies and the History of Art & Architecture (with a Philosophy minor) and an MA in Visual & Critical Studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He currently lives in Philadelphia, PA.
