Grant Wood: American Gothic and Other Fables

Thu., Sept. 27, 6-9 p.m.
phone 313.831.1250

Grant Wood’s American Gothic—the double portrait of a pitchfork-wielding farmer and a woman commonly presumed to be his wife—is perhaps the most recognizable painting in 20th century American art, an indelible icon of Americana, and certainly Wood’s most famous artwork. But Wood’s career consists of far more than one single painting. He was a complex, sophisticated artist whose image as a farmer-painter was as mythical as the fables he depicted in his art. Wood sought pictorially to fashion a world of harmony and prosperity that would answer America’s need for reassurance at a time of economic and social upheaval occasioned Dinner and Lecture - Non-Member: $65.00, Lecture Only - Non-Member: $20.00

Burroughs Dinner & Lecture — LUMIA: Thomas Wilfred and the Origins of Time-Based Media in Modern Art

Thu., Nov. 8, 6-9 p.m.
phone 313.831.1250

In her lecture, Lumia: Thomas Wilfred and the Origins of Time-Based Media in Modern Art, Keely Orgeman will focus on the work of the Danish-American artist Thomas Wilfred, who built an international reputation in the first half of the twentieth century as the pioneer of a new art form, which he called lumia. Wilfred invented sophisticated analog “instruments” that produce brilliantly colored displays, realizing a fusion of modernist abstraction and pre-digital technology. My talk considers at the formal and conceptual affinities between lumia and the wide-ranging work of Wilfred’s contemporaries, from other early kinetic-light objects, such as Stanton Macdonald-Wright’s Synchrome Dinner and Lecture - Non-Member: $65.00, Lecture Only - Non-Member: $20.00

Burroughs Dinner & Lecture — Albert Kahn

Thu., Feb. 28, 6-9 p.m.

Industrial architect Albert Kahn was a giant in Detroit’s heroic age, the visionary who invented the humane “daylight factories” that helped birth both modern manufacturing and modern architecture. In this lecture and slideshow, Detroit News reporter Michael H. Hodges — author of “Building the Modern World: Albert Kahn in Detroit” — will review Kahn’s local legacy, his vigorous defense of Diego Rivera’s “Detroit Industry” murals when under attack, and his role helping the Soviets beat the Nazis in 1941-42. Michael H. Hodges is the fine-arts writer for The Detroit News, where he’s worked since 1991. “Building the Modern World: Albert Dinner and Lecture - Non-Member: $65.00, Lecture Only - Non-Member: $20.00

Florine Stetheimer: The Love Flight of a Pink Candy Heart

Thu., April 11, 6-9 p.m.
phone 313.831.1250

Florine Stettheimer socialized within the same milieu as her contemporary, fellow artist and museum founder Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, becoming a fixture among the New York avant-garde. She studied in New York and Paris and her lesser known early work recalls the realist traditions of the Ashcan School. Yet, she is best known for the vibrant and exuberant palette of the fantasies that she begins to lay down on canvas after 1916. Behind the Pink Cellophane Curtain: The Fantasy World of Florine Stettheimer will explore not only the imagined often autobiographical worlds found in her canvases, but also the studio she Dinner and Lecture - Non-Member: $65.00, Lecture Only - Non-Member: $20.00

FREDERIC REMINGTON

Thu., May 30, 6-9 p.m.
phone 313.831.1250

While Frederic Remington is often thought of as a western character, namely because of the subject matter of his artwork, he was in fact a cosmopolitan New Yorker who socialized with America’s most important artists at the turn of the twentieth century. This talk will consider his relationship with the American Impressionists, including John Henry Twachtman, Julian Alden Wier, and Childe Hassam, with whom he regularly socialized at the Player’s Club in New York City, and discuss how these artists influenced the development of his artistic technique and philosophy.
