Beyond the borders of the metropolitan art world, among a string of small, industrial towns in central Wisconsin, an experiment in the museum of the future is taking shape.

Artist and curator Tyanna Buie sees our world as a post-George Floyd society. We will never be the same, or, that is the hope. The role of the artist, and the museum, has come to reflect this new reality. In the small but nimble Trout Museum of Art in Appleton, Wisconsin, Buie has gathered sixty-one artists from traditionally marginalized backgrounds and staked a claim for them. “Unraveled. Restructured. Revealed.,” proposes a future for curation, and for empowering artists and their art.

Buie has roots in Chicago, her MFA is from the University of Wisconsin in Madison and she is a professor of printmaking at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit. She is the recipient of the Joan Mitchell Painters & Sculptors grant, as well a fellowship from the Kresge Foundation. Her artwork has been collected by the Milwaukee Art Museum and other institutions. She has exhibited widely in New York, Detroit and Las Vegas.
