Mark di Suvero: Tabletops

Mark di Suvero, Maya 1995, steel, Collection of the artist
Event Type:
Exhibition
Sponsor:
University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA)
Time:
10:00 am
Location:
Museum of Art
Room:
N/A

Preeminent American sculptor Mark di Suvero (b. 1933) is best known for his dynamic and monumental works made of industrial steel and salvaged materials that populate museum grounds, landscapes, and urban environments around the world. In addition to countless exhibitions and awards, in March 2011 di Suvero was honored with the National Medal of the Arts by President Obama in a White House ceremony. This exhibition, organized by UMMA and on view exclusively in Ann Arbor, features approximately 15 of di Suvero's rarely exhibited smaller scale pieces, or tabletops, from the 1950s to the present. The tabletops are not maquettes of larger-scale works but an expressionistic and engaging genre all their own, an outlet for exploring ideas relating to the calligraphic nature of form, balance, proportion, and movement. Drawing from numerous private collections as well as the artist's studio, the exhibition offers the opportunity to experience this intimate work in the Museum's ground level, glass-walled Irving Stenn, Jr, Family Project Gallery, adjacent to the two di Suvero outdoor steel sculptures on the Museum's grounds–Orion (2006) and Shang (1984–85).

This exhibition is made possible in part by the Office of the President of the University of Michigan, the University of Michigan Health System, and Laura Lynch and Hugh McPherson.

Recent Acquisitions: Curator's Choice, Part I

Karl Struss United States, 1886-1981 Yacht Harbor, Lake Como 1909 Platinum print
Event Type:
Exhibition
Sponsor:
University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA)
Time:
10:00 am
Location:
Museum of Art
Room:
N/A

This is the first part of a two-part exhibition introducing exciting, recently acquired works from UMMA's collections gifted to the museum during the past five years. Recent Acquisitions: Curator's Choice, Part I presents a first look at artworks, mostly prints, drawings, and photographs by artists as diverse as Annie Leibovitz, Edward Steichen, and Rembrandt van Rijn. Carole McNamara, Senior Curator of Western Art, chose works that focus on some of the enduring and compelling themes that have occupied artists in Europe and America. One is the preoccupation with the human form as an expression of ideas, feelings, and sensations. This selection begins with the tradition of the academic nude study and progresses to embrace different genres, from both secular and religious contexts. Another selection-landscapes and cityscapes-are each opportunities for artists to speak to our relationship to the natural world-both in how we experience landscape as well as how we construct our own urban environments.

This exhibition is made possible in part by the University of Michigan Office of the Provost.

Robert Wilson: Video 50

Robert Wilson. “Video 50,” 1978. Courtesy Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI), Ne
Event Type:
Exhibition
Sponsor:
University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA)
Time:
10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Location:
Museum of Art
Room:
New Media Gallery

The tiny dramas that comprise Robert Wilson's Video 50 contain aspects of his hallmark aesthetic: surreal or dream-like imagery, the absence of a linear narrative, the conflation of seemingly unrelated characters and micro-stories, and a mesmerizingly slow pace. Video 50 consists of a randomly arranged set of 30-second "episodes," a few of which feature notable French personalities of the 1970s-perfumier Hélène Rochas stares down a mugger, culture minister Michel Guy struggles to open a dresser drawer-and Wilson thought of these as miniature portraits or character studies. The creator and director of aggressively experimental theater, Wilson first came to prominence with works from the mid-1970s such as The Life and Times of Joseph Stalin (1973) and Einstein on the Beach (1976). These lavish, unusually long productions broke and then redefined every convention of theater. In Video 50 his shorter time-based portraits explore the intersection of narrative and still-life, seductively dissolving the distance between viewer and subject.

Mike Doughty

Phote Mike Doughty
Event Type:
Performance
Sponsor:
Michigan Union Ticket Office (MUTO)
Time:
8:00 pm
Location:
Off Campus Location
Room:
The Ark- 316 S. Main St.

In 1992 Mike Doughty was working as a doorman at New York's legendary Knitting Factory club. With musicians he met there he formed Soul Coughing, a great 1990s band whose unclassifiable mix of rock, beat poetry, hip-hop, and electronica gained in passionate admiration what it lost in mainstream success. The reasons for Soul Coughing's 2000 breakup included Doughty's own drug addiction. His reinvention of himself as a solo singer-songwriter has brought new creativity, warmth, and, dare we say it, a bit of lightening up as he has sung, written, and blogged about a huge range of topics from the personal to the political to the whimsical. Mike comes to Michigan with a new release, "Yes and Also Yes," that includes one song in German and other accompanied by a Chinese zither.
