Structures of Light

Through Jan. 31
Culture Lab Detroit 1301 Broadway St, Detroit Downtown Detroit


For Structures of Light, a joint show from Cranbrook Academy of Art and Playground Detroit, artist and educator Scott Klinker uses new LED neon technology to transform a downtown Detroit space into a light-up wonderland — “like entering the space of a glowing, geometric line drawing,” according to the event curators. Should make a great selfie photo op.

Klinker is currently Designer-in-Residence at Cranbrook, where he received his MFA in 1996. Klinker led the product design program at the Kanazawa International Design Institute in Japan, where he founded his independent studio, Scott Klinker Design, and has worked with clients like Herman Miller, Alessi, Steelcase, Landscape Forms, Burton Snowboards, and more.

Opening reception from 6-9 p.m.

Preoccupations: Palestinian Landscapes

Through Feb. 8
Holding House Gallery 3546 Michigan Ave., Detroit Greater Detroit Area


Here, the word “preoccupations” is a double entendre — it can refer to both Palestinians’ longstanding preoccupation with landscape art, but also Israel’s occupation of Palestine, which has transformed the terrain with military checkpoints and the West Bank wall. Curated by Kathy Zarur, this show features photos, paintings, and mixed-media from Palestinian artists Ryah Aqel, Zeina Barakeh, C. Gazaleh, Najib Joe Hakim, Manar Harb, Yazan Khalili, Suhad Khatib, and Mary Tuma. The show’s run includes a panel discussion and brunch at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 12; a conversation between Zarur and University of Michigan Islamic Arts lecturer Sascha Crasnow about the challenges of curating exhibitions of Palestinian art in the U.S. at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 16; a “Building a Palestine Library” event from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 25; a zine-making worksop from 2-5 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 1; and a closing reception from 7-9 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 8.

C. Gazaleh, "Flight Over Jerusalem," 2015. Ink on paper.

Through Feb. 22
Simone DeSousa Gallery 444 W. Willis St., Units 111 and 112, Detroit Midtown


Simone DeSousa Gallery has two exhibitions opening on Saturday. Always Sometimes Never is a solo exhibition of paintings by Timothy van Laar, made up of new works alongside selected works from the 1980s and ’90s. Meanwhile, I went to work but I did not get there has new work from Ryan Standfest, which draws on Standfest’s love of all things old-school, like comic strips and tabloid newsprint. (313) 833-9000
