Xeriscape Group Show

Sat., June 23, 6 p.m.

The best of both worlds absolutely pertains to Xeriscape, this year’s iteration of Public Matter. Library Street Collective will transform the Belt Alley by bringing large-scale artworks outside and incorporating natural outdoor elements with the interior space. Nina Chanel, Abney, Rosson Crow, Beverly Fishman, Tschabalala, and Wendy White are among the featured contemporary visual artists while Adult., Bevlove, and Mother Cyborg will elevate the experience with their sonic output. What is most unique about this particular showcase is the varied perspectives on gender, race, identity, materiality, space, and form.

Guided Tour - See Through: Mirrors and Windows in Twentieth-Century Photography

Sun., June 24, 2-3 p.m.
phone 734-764-0395
,

See Through looks at how photographers of these images doubly frame the world around us —once through the frame of the camera lens and, again, through the frame of a reflective mirror or transparent window. UMMA Docents will reveal which photographers include their own reflections in their photographs, highlighting their active role in the creation of images. A tour will also indicate which photographers look outward, enacting an exchange of public and, sometimes, voyeuristic glances; and which look inward to domestic spaces, framing intimate views and personal moments among families and lovers.

Sundays, 12-5 p.m. and Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Sept. 23
phone 734-764-0395
,

Canadian artist Marcel Dzama is known for imaginative drawings, sculptures, dioramas, and films rooted in the traditions of Surrealism, Dada and outsider art. His 2013 film Une danse des bouffons (or A jester's dance) tells the tale of a romance between two principal figures of these traditions: Dada icon Marcel Duchamp and Brazilian sculptor Maria Martins, who was the model for Duchamp's final, enigmatic artwork Étant donnés.

Exercising the Eye: The Gertrude Kasle Collection

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through July 22
phone 734-764-0395

This exhibition celebrates Gertrude Kasle (1917–2016), a key figure in the formation of Detroit’s contemporary art community in the 1960s and 70s. A pioneering female gallerist, Kasle provided midwest audiences with a venue in which to experience avant-garde art from centers like New York City, while also supporting and exhibiting regional artists. Featuring a collection of paintings, works on paper, and sculptures from the height of the Abstract Expressionist movement through the early twenty-first century, Exercising the Eye speaks to the relationships Kasle fostered with local, national, and international artists and her appreciation for artistic expression and experimentation.

See Through: Windows and Mirrors in Twentieth-Century Photography

Sundays, 12-5 p.m. and Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Aug. 23
phone 734-764-0395
,

See Through: Mirrors and Windows in Twentieth-Century Photography brings together a group of images that are doubly framed—once by the camera lens and again by the border of a mirror or window. By refracting and distorting, revealing and concealing, these reflective and transparent surfaces both draw attention to the photographer’s efforts to frame the world and expose the contingent nature of reality. Highlights from the exhibition include works by Eugène Atget, Robert Doisneau, Elliott Erwitt, Walker Evans, André Kertész, Joanne Leonard, Danny Lyon, and Joel Meyerowitz. Free
