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.

Time:
7:00 pm
Location:
Museum of Art
Room:
Helmut Stern Auditorium

Renegade filmmaker Charles Atlas (who worked extensively with the late choreographer Merce Cunningham) introduces his 2002 documentary The Legend of Leigh Bowery. Artist/designer/performer/provocateur Leigh Bowery designed costumes and performed with the "enfante terrible" of British dance Michael Clark, designed one of a kind outrageous costumes and creations for himself, ran one of the most outrageous clubs of the 1980s London club scene (later immortalized in Boy George's Broadway musical "Taboo"), and was the muse of the great British painter Lucian Freud. The film includes interviews with Damien Hirst, Bella Freud, Cerith Wyn Evans, Boy George, and Leigh Bowery’s widow, Nicola Bowery. Atlas will engage in audience Q&A immediately following the film. Co-presented with the UM Institute for the Humanities, which hosts Charles Atlas's video installation Joints Array in February 2012.

This program is part of the UMS on Film series designed to expand our understanding of the artists and cultures represented on the UMS season. Each film is introduced by a cultural expert and reveals something of the emotions and ideas behind the creative process. For more information, please visit http://www.ums.org.
