Mondays-Sundays, 10 a.m. Continues through June 6

The DIA debuts its latest exhibition, Making Home: Contemporary Works, just in time for the holidays.

Celebrated Detroit-based artists Bill Rauhauser and Charles McGee explore urbanization while photographer Carrie Mae Williams dives into gender and domesticity with The Kitchen Table Series. free

New at UMMA: Illuminated Manuscript

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

,

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

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

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.
