Mike Wagner: From Fool to World
Mike Wagner: From Fool to World, The Stranger, May 2018
"Bridge Productions has a history of experimenting with new ways to create outreach and dialogue around art. Their latest venture is a curatorial residency featuring Negarra A. Kudumu, a critical scholar with a sharp eye and international outlook whose recent projects include coauthoring a book about the visual legacy of the Black Panther Party. For this residency, Kudumu will curate an exhibition of works by prolific multimedia artist Mike Wagner, whose work explores the forgotten, disfigured, beautiful, and unobtainable. Throughout the residency, essays by the effervescently brilliant Kudumu—whom Charles Mudede once called "a marvelous cloud of thinking and practices"—will appear on Bridge Productions' website."
