Greymatter was established in 2011 out of the remnants of an old storage room. It is an artist-run space operated by Rachel Quirk and Zina Mussmann who recognize that artists are a driving force in culture. They believe in the power of artists to build new institutions through the power of collaboration. Their goal is to be a part of this dialogue by working with local and national artists in organizing diverse and thought provoking exhibitions.

 

Same Old Sh*t...and other bad jokes about my relationship with the landscape

 

C. Matthew Luther

Artist reception
September 19th  5:00 - 9:00pm

Exhibition runs September 6th through October 11th. 

Superfund is the federal government’s program to clean up the nation’s uncontrolled hazardous waste sites. In this exhibition, Luther documents some of the EPA Superfund Sites in the State of Wisconsin. Luther starts from the vantage point of someone who has Crohn’s Disease, an immune disorder that some speculate is caused by environmental factors. His questions regarding the environment start on this personal note, but also explore the larger questions of how chemicals that have been introduced into the land affect us immediately and over the course of time.
