Paul Rand: The Designer's Task

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Feb. 10
phone 734-764-0395
matisend@umich.edu
,

Paul Rand was a giant of American design, whose influential career spanned the second half of the twentieth century. His visionary and pithy conceptions of corporate and non-profit brand identities—though often graphically minimal—embody the artist’s complex philosophy, interest in modernist aesthetics, and singular wit. This exhibition features posters, book covers, and packaging designs from Rand’s beginnings as a pro bono designer for arts and culture publications like Direction magazine to his decades of crafting trailblazing corporate design for companies such as IBM.

Paul Rand: The Designer's Task

Proof: The Ryoichi Excavations

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays, 12-5 p.m. Continues through Feb. 3
phone 734-764-0395
,

The story of Japanese archaeologist Ryoichi and evidence of his worldwide excavations are explored by Patrick Nagatani in this series of photographs. Nagatani presents a narrative of Ryoichi’s archeological work, supported by images of excavation sites, unearthed artifacts, and Ryoichi’s own journal pages. According to the photographs, Ryoichi discovered evidence of an automobile culture buried at sites across several continents: Stonehenge, the Grand Canyon, and a necropolis in China. This provocative and playful series compels viewers to reflect on how photographs and institutions, such as museums, shape our knowledge of the past and present. Free

Two brilliant female evolutionary biologists share a bold, contrarian approach to their male-dominated field, but the younger scholar challenges the older woman’s work with a radical new theory—one that could change society’s basic understanding of female sexuality. This keenly perceptive play explores the difficult choices of modern American women and generational divides in feminism. Directed by David Wolber, The How and the Why features Sayre Fox and Diane Hill. $22 (Pay-what-you-can tickets available for every performance)
