Buckingham is one of seven artists participating in the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art’s reopening exhibition, Between the Lakes: Artists Respond to Madison. This exhibition, created for the opening of the museum’s facility in the new Overture Center for the Arts and coinciding with the sesquicentennial of Madison’s city charter, asks the participating artists to explore the past and examine the present. Buckingham’s commission for the museum will be installed alongside works by Siah Armajani, Lee Mingwei, Nancy Mladenoff, Alec Soth, and a collaboration between Donna House and Truman Lowe. The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue featuring essays by Stephen Fleischman, director of the museum; Katy Siegel, associate professor of art history and criticism at Hunter College, CUNY, and a contributing editor to Artforum; and Jane Simon, Madison Museum of Contemporary Art curator.
