DCDT Talk: Growing up Creative in Detroit

Wed., Sept. 26, 6-8 p.m.

From that DIY drive to the music scene of the 2000s, Detroit has fostered creative generations in all realms of work. We check in with the artists who made a name for themselves and remained in Detroit. What did it take? What resources and skills made it possible? And what does it all mean to the generation to come? Speakers to include: Author Karen Dybis, Alex Clark of Bon Bon Bon and Kiki Louya, co-owner of The Farmer’s Hand and Folk. Free

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
