Stacey Steers: Night Hunter

Fri., May 24, 6 p.m.

It took Colorado-based artist Stacey Steers four years to complete the 4,000 handmade collages that make up the unsettling 16-minute-long stop-motion animation of Night Hunter. The silent film pairs silent film star Lillian Gish and explores the feminine role within domesticity but with creepy eggs, bugs, bats, and snakes against a score that calls to mind Thom Yorke’s anxious Suspiria soundtrack.

In addition to a Friday screening at Detroit's K.OSS Contemporary Art Gallery,  Steers will display the “Night Hunter House” — a large-scale Victorian-style dollhouse where snippets from the film will be projected throughout the house’s many rooms. A smaller scale variation, titled the “Night Hunter Cottage,” will also be on display with shadow boxes and dismembered collages.

Event begins at 6 p.m.; 1410 Gratiot Ave., Detroit; 248-599-2232; kossgallery.com. Event is free.

82nd Detroit Public Schools Community District Student Exhibition

Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through June 2

For those who may be in doubt that children are the future, or could use a surge of inspiration, welcome back Detroit Public Schools Community District Student Exhibition, which is returning for its 82nd year. Despite Secretary of Education Cruella DeVos’ villainous attempt to cut educational budgets threatening Detroit’s public school programs, artistic students persevere with the support of the exemplary teachers working tirelessly to encourage self-expression. Explorations of imagination and visions of the future, as shown by students grades K-12, the exhibit will feature hundreds of works in a wide range of mediums, including paint, print, drawings, photography, ceramics, video, jewelry, and more. The exhibition will be on display through June 2. Free with museum admission

Engaging African Art: Highlights from the Horn Collection

A psychiatrist who now works and resides in Rochester, New York, Horn has continued to collect African art, amassing a sizable trove of 20th century works. He caught the attention of the Flint Institute of Arts director John Henry, who invited him to exhibit his collection in the museum. Starting this weekend, Horn's collection finds a temporary home in Flint as part of the museum's Black History Month celebrations. $10 donation

KAWS: Alone Again

Wednesdays-Sundays, 7 p.m. Continues through Aug. 4

Remember when that 17-foot creepy Mickey Mouse-esque statue curiously appeared on the grounds of Quicken Loans’ campus downtown last year? The KAWS creation titled “Waiting” ignited a conversation about public art and how it speaks to its surrounding community. Now, more KAWS is coming to Detroit: In partnership with Library Street Collective, MOCAD will display five sculptures, a site-specific wall work, and three paintings by the renowned Brooklyn-based street artist. Alone Again boasts bold colors, abstractions, deconstruction, and commentary on turbulent times. The museum’s spring exhibition opening also welcomes 12 never-before-seen paintings by figurative surrealist Eddie Martinez, as well as Nicolas Lobo’s Wellness Center, which will be on display at Mike Kelley’s Mobile Homestead. Work will be on display through Aug 4. $5 suggested donation
