Sonja Thomsen: Artist Books

Sat September 16, 2017 @ 2:00 am - 4:30 pm

Free

The construction of zines is an integral part of artist Sonja Thomsen’s practice. When building an installation she often begins with the book. Mapping out her ideas and process within a book format helps her conceptualize her approach to activate the physical space of the museum or gallery. Her installation in the space of elsewhere transforms the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art’s lobby through November 11, 2017.

As an extension of the installation, ALL has collaborated with MMoCA to exhibit a selection of Sonja’s artist books and offer a free workshop with Sonja on September 16, 2017 from 2-4:30pm. Thomsen will discuss the role of bookmaking in her installation practice and offer a workshop to participants who want feedback on their own artist books. Limited to 10 participants. RSVP by emailing hello@artlitlab.org. Participants should bring a work in progress or book dummy to share.

Sonja Thomsen is a Milwaukee-based artist whose multifaceted practice combines photography, sculpture, interactive installation and site-specific public art to create spaces reflective of our own perceptions. Since earning an MFA in photography at the San Francisco Art Institute (2004), she has exhibited with Higher Pictures, DePaul Art Museum, Center for Photography at Woodstock, the Reykjavik Museum of Photography, New Mexico Museum of Art, Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, Gallery f5,6 in Munich among others. Thomsen’s work resides in the collections of the Milwaukee Art Museum, Reykjavík Museum of Photography and the Museum of Contemporary Photography. Accolades include the Mary L. Nohl Fellowship for Individual Artists, Milwaukee Arts Board New Work Commission, Digital Artist in Residence at Columbia College Chicago and a Hermitage Artist Fellowship. Sonja Thomsen is a member of the international photography collective Piece of Cake. Thomsen is a Lecturer at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
