About INOVA


Since 1996, INOVA - Institute of Visual Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee has established an international reputation as a contemporary art research center. INOVA is widely recognized for the high quality of its programs and for the opportunity it offers artists to experiment and to create new work. According to Artforum magazine, "the Institute of Visual Arts has established itself as one of the most adventuresome venues in the states."

Like its parent organization the Peck School of the Arts, INOVA is committed to advanced research and instruction, bringing innovative artists to the UWM campus and the city of Milwaukee. INOVA strives to make the rigor and diversity of such artistic production accessible to audiences through a variety of public presentations and publications. Our exhibitions and programs provide firsthand experiences with works of art and the dialogues art can generate.

INOVA is located on the street level of the Kenilworth Building, which houses faculty and graduate student studios, rehearsal spaces, and informal exhibition areas. INOVA has over 7,000 square feet of exhibition space, including a dedicated black-box screening room. Admission to the gallery is free for all, ensuring a wide and diverse audience outside of UWM.
