American Landscape

Mondays-Sundays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Continues through April 8, 2018

You don’t often hear about the LGBTQ+ civil rights fight in the context of Arab peoples, so it’s especially interesting to see the museum offer this show. At the center of it all is artist Nabil Mousa, an artist born in Syria but raised in a conservative Christian household in the United States. His willingness to use art as a way to comment on the religious and political has met with some controversy, such as a work of his that was banned from a public building at Grand Rapids’ ArtPrize two years ago. But the new show of his art is filled with the color orange, which Mousa uses to symbolize fear. ("Orange alert," anyone?) Runs through April 8, 2018.

The Art of Containment — Vessels from the Sidney Swidler Collection

Mondays-Sundays. Continues through March 31, 2018

Sidney Swidler’s work as a modern architect helped train his eye to pick up the essential elements of form, texture, glaze selection, craftsmanship, and artistic intent, which he used to collect nearly 1,000 piece of contemporary ceramic art. In 2010, he donated around 800 of those pieces to California’s Crocker Art Museum. Seven years later, he gave 100 pieces to the FIA, a gift that resulted in this exhibit. Hours of the museum are: Monday-Friday: 12 p.m.-5 p.m., Saturday: 10 a.m.- 5 p.m., Sunday 1 p.m.-5 p.m.

Abjeez

Tue., Nov. 21, 8 p.m.

What’re your thoughts on Persian Swedish world pop fusion? Nothing? Well, let’s change your mind. Iranian-born sisters Melody and Safoura Safavi formed Abjeez in 2005. The result? A totally wild ride. Known for their subversive take on taboo subjects in a range of stylistic attitudes, Abjeez are across the board all over the board and therefore borderless. A mashup of reggae, ska, and rock, the Safavi sisters (and respective bandmates) manage a hypnotic blend of play and power you don’t have to speak the language to feel Abjeez’s unique global groove. $20-25

Halsey, PartyNextDoor, and Charli XCX

Tue., Nov. 21, 8 p.m.

“Bad at Love” singer Halsey might seem like the new girl on the block, but thanks to a boost from DJ duo the Chainsmokers and their hit “Closer” she’s quickly becoming a radio-dominating force all her own. Spending most of 2015 opening for acts like Imagine Dragons and the Weeknd pushing her debut record Badlands Halsey (an anagram of her first name Ashley… cute) paved the way for her 2017 Romeo and Juliet-inspired chart-topping Hopeless Fountain Kingdom. This time she’s headlining, and has enlisted PartyNextDoor and Charlie XCX for support. $60
