DiverseWorks on Wednesdays: Sound Work by Madsen Minax

DiverseWorks on Wednesdays: Sound Work by Madsen Minax

Sound Work by Madsen Minax

For this DWOW Madsen will perform “light wake (as opposed to heavy wave)” music about leaving and being left.

Minax was born and raised in rural Northern Michigan and received a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2005 and an MFA from Northwestern University in 2012. Currently, Minax is a Core Fellow at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX and a member of the DiverseWorks Artist Board. For more information about Minax, visit his web site.

Madsen makes media-based works drawing upon notions of be/longing and the politics of dis/identification and desire. He approaches the medium through interests in science fiction, fantasy, dreams, erotics, and social justice to address a series of binaries: the slippage between erotics and violence, consent and violation, youth and adult, male and female, attraction and repulsion, inception and termination.
