In Conversation: Disability and Power with Dessa Cosma

Sun., Jan. 26, 3-4 p.m.

Buy Ticketsfree but registration required

Dessa Cosma is a social justice activist and the founding director of Detroit Disability Power, which works to bridge the gap between the disability community and social justice movements. For Cosma, disability is a key part of her identity and of critical importance socially and politically—just like race, gender, sexual orientation, and religion. In this informal gallery talk, she will respond to the works of Japanese artist Mari Katayama and reflect upon her experiences and political expression as a disability activist. Katayama uses her disabled body as the subject in her provocative series of works combining photography, sculpture, and textiles. (734) 764-0395; (734) 764-3731 (FAX)

In Conversation: Travel into Infinity with artist Chul Hyun Ahn

Sun., Jan. 5, 3-4 p.m.

Buy Ticketsfree but registration required

Korean artist Chul Hyun Ahn uses mirrors and light to create geometric shapes that repeat infinitely into the distance. Ahn’s repetitions of circles, squares, and lines resonate with Zen Buddhist ink painting, which aims to transmit complex teachings through minimalist brushstrokes and basic shapes. In this informal gallery talk, Ahn will discuss the techniques and concepts behind his mesmerizing works which have fascinated many visitors of the UMMA's exhibition "Copies and Invention in East Asia." The exhibition challenges our understanding of originality, and presents copying as an act of imaginative interpretation, through works of art spanning ancient to contemporary times.

June 3, 2017. A 25-year-old former Air Force linguist named Reality Winner is surprised at her home by the FBI, interrogated, and then charged with leaking top-secret evidence of Russian interference in our voting system to the media. She’s in jail now, sentenced in August 2018 to a five-year, three-month prison sentence. Conceived as a play and directed by Tina Satter, the 2017 verbatim transcript reveals a verbal dance between the knife-sharp Reality and the FBI agents who arrive at her home unannounced to interrogate her. As Reality’s autonomy shrinks before her eyes, a simmering real-life thriller emerges, offering vital considerations of access, language, power, patriotism, and honor at this particularly loaded American moment.
