Making Home: Contemporary Works

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. The collection explores interpretations of domestic space, permanency, and proposes questions of what it means to what it means to feel at “home.” Nearly 50 works in a variety of mediums ranging from prints, drawings, photographs, and contemporary art make up Making Home. 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

Aftermath: Landscapes of Devastation

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through May 27
phone 734-764-0395

Over the last 150 years the medium of photography has powerfully depicted and shaped representations of past and present scenes of devastation. Aftermath examines landscape photographs made at the sites of natural or human-made disasters, capturing the results of destructive forces wrought on the land and its inhabitants, including volcano eruptions and floods, massacres and uprisings, and even nuclear explosions. The exhibition includes images of the aftermath of events spanning over 2,000 years of human history. These photographs remind us that disaster is often a collective experience that can impact societies well after an event. Free

In celebration of the University of Michigan’s Bicentennial in 2017, artist and distinguished U­–M art professor Jim Cogswell was invited to create a series of public window installations in response to the holdings of the University of Michigan Museum of Art and the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology. For this visionary project, the artist adhered a procession of vivid images to the glass walls of the museums in a rhythmically evocative narrative, based on reassembled fragments from a diverse range of artworks in both museums' permanent collections.
