Detroit Fringe Festival

Sun., Nov. 18

Entering its fifth year, the Detroit Fringe Festival spans genres, mediums, and visions. More than 200 artists have been featured since the festival launched in 2013, giving audiences access to experimental local artists they might not otherwise encounter. And this year is the biggest yet: The fest will take over CMP, LightBox, Jam Handy, and Planet Ant for a weekend of out-there performances. Per usual, two performers will receive Jury’s Choice and the Audience Choice awards. Among artists in contention, this year include One Single Rose, Molly Jones, Collette Red, Alix Curnow, Robert Fitzgerald, and others. $8-$70

Marvel Universe Live

Sun., Nov. 18, 12 & 4 p.m.

Not all heroes wear capes — but a lot of them do, and a lot of them fancy themselves residents of the Marvel Universe. While villain Thanos may have flexed his destructive big dick energy during this summer’s blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War, heroes will have the last laugh when Marvel Universe Live! resurrects our favorite band of good guys for a race against time. Watch the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man, and Doctor Strange as they fight to recover the Wand of Watoomb from bad boy Loki’s hands. $40+

Kate Silvio: 'You can never go home again'

Through Nov. 24, 6 p.m.

In a new solo show, artist Kate Silvio — a woman “on the cusp of what society defines as ‘middle age,’” according to a press release — offers new works that reflect upon aging, self-acceptance, and motherhood. “How did I get here?” Silvio writes in an artist statement. “Was it an action or a reaction? The realization is that you may not be able to recall the exact moment when you made these decisions, but it must be you who made them.” The sculptor, a College for Creative Studies alum who now lives in Grand Rapids, creates multimedia works made from metals, rubber, felt, and wood, among other materials.

After an attack influenced by her race, a university professor wants to forget about it and move on with her life. When her (white) roommate and the dean of the school push her to "make an example of it," she finds herself suddenly roped into planning a diversity day, trying to convince her roommate not to plan a sit-in, and attempting to maintain her sanity as the racial threats begin to escalate. Well-Intentioned White People explores how some people deal with discrimination not necessarily directed at them and how their "good intentions" can sometimes be just as problematic. $17-$22

New at UMMA: Life Magazine 1947 Homecoming Photographs

Sundays, 12-5 p.m. Continues through Nov. 18
phone 734-764-0395

In October 1947, just two years after the end of World War II, the popular weekly news magazine LIFE sent staff photographers Lisa Larsen and Ralph Morse to cover homecoming weekend at the University of Michigan. The subsequent article, “Michigan Homecoming,” which brought national attention to UM’s athletic program, featured a seven-page spread with photographs of the campus during a much-anticipated football game between the number-one ranked Michigan Wolverines and the University of Minnesota’s Golden Gophers. This installation provides a unique opportunity to view twenty-one images of that weekend, many of which were not published in the original article. Free
