Third Thursday Speaker Series: Detroit: A Tale of Two Cities

Thu., July 19, 6-8 p.m.

charnaes@detroithistorical.org

“Detroit has been the beneficiary of one of the most remarkable rebrandings in recent history,” wrote the Detroit News’s Michael Hodges in his essay, How Detroit Got Its Groove Back. A front-page article in the travel section of the New York Times asks “Detroit, the Most Exciting City in America?” and gushes that the Motor City is “revving back to life.” But is the city’s comeback story an inspiring model for urban recovery or is it a textbook lesson on the negative impact redevelopment and gentrification has on poor and neglected communities? Let's discuss. Free

New at UMMA: Illuminated Manuscript

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays, 12-5 p.m. Continues through Aug. 19
phone 734-764-0395
,

Books of hours—custom-made for private devotion in the Christian faith—were a bestseller in medieval Europe. These manuscripts incorporated prayers, hymns, biblical stories, and monthly calendars featuring religious feast days, which were often supplemented by images painted in exquisite detail. Today, books of hours are a testament to the visually rich material culture of the Middle Ages. UMMA was recently gifted a bejeweled double-sided calendar leaf for January. Executed on parchment, the page highlights the material opulence and artistry involved in manuscript illumination. Free

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.

Unrecorded: Reimagining Artist Identities in Africa

Sundays, 12-5 p.m. and Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Sept. 9
phone 734-764-0395

Historical collecting practices have had a lasting impact on representations of Africa, its history, culture, and life today. Labeled as ‘unknown’ or ‘anonymous,’ African artists became associated with broad cultural styles and collective identities rather than personal creativity and individual agency. The exhibition Unrecorded: Reimagining Artist Identities in Africa includes artworks from both named and unrecorded, contemporary and historic artists to tell an alternative story. It explores how the changing attributes of an ‘African’ artist’s identity, and constructions of African identity more broadly, have shaped perceptions of Africa outside of the continent. Free

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
