4,000 Years for Choice

From the exhibition, "4,000 Years for Choice: A Graphic Guide to Reproductive Ju

A Graphic Guide to Reproductive Justice

Event Type:
Exhibition
Sponsors:
Institute for Research on Women and Gender
Women's Studies Department
Time:
8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Location:
Lane Hall
Room:
Lane Hall Gallery

This exhibition combines two projects by graphic designer Heather Ault. "4,000 Years for Choice" is an exhibition of posters about the age-old practice of abortion and contraception as a means to reclaim reproductive freedom as a deeply personal and life-sustaining act existing throughout all of human history. The "Reproductive Roots" series shines a bright light on the many voices from the abortion care and reproductive justice movements, using vividly designed social media graphics and notecards to inspire conversations from a breadth of perspectives.

Heather Ault is a visual artist, pro-choice activist, and independent scholar creating artwork to shift conversations about reproductive rights and justice. She uses vibrant graphics, affirmative language, and historical accounts to transform ugly discord into visual narratives that are beautiful and empowering.

The exhibition is presented by the Institute for Research on Women and Gender and the Women's Studies Department. It is cosponsored by the Program for Sexual Rights and Reproductive Justice, the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design.

The exhibition is closed weekends and university holidays.

Gifts of Art presents Paperweights & Studio Glass

UM-Dearborn Permanent Art Collection

UM-Dearborn Permanent Art Collection

Event Type:
Exhibition
Sponsor:
Gifts of Art
Time:
8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Location:
Cancer Center
Room:
Gifts of Art Gallery — Level B2.

The American studio glass movement started in 1962 with glass workshops held at the Toledo Museum of Art. The workshops, taught by Harvey Littleton along with scientist Dominick Labino, introduced a small furnace built for working glass that made it possible for artists to work in independent studios. The studio glass movement quickly spread north to Michigan, and in 1982, a decision was made that studio glass would be the focus of the University of Michigan-Dearborn permanent art collection, which is housed at the Alfred Berkowitz Gallery. This exhibition is a portion of that collection, spotlighting studio glass art by major artists working in the medium, including Dominick Labino, Marvin Lipofsky and Richard Ritter.

Gifts of Art Gallery — Main Corridor, Floor 2.

Having raised his two children near the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Ken Scott has found much inspiration there. A self-taught photographer, he started out with a 35mm camera, heavy tripod, either a 24 or 105 mm lens, and a slow slide film (ASA 50). He is now climbing the digital ladder! Scott’s photography is the result of 20+ years of "lots of patience, recognizing the right place at the right time, but not necessarily for the intended image…" He shoots photographs around Leelanau County, Michigan and stitches multiple images together to create vistas beyond what a single image can show.

Three Michigan Architects: Part 2—Robert Metcalf

Robert Metcalf
Event Type:
Exhibition
Sponsor:
University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA)
Time:
11:00 am - 5:00 pm
Location:
Museum of Art
Room:
N/A

Robert Metcalf’s domestic and commercial buildings represent some of the most important and recognizable modern architecture in Michigan. Born in 1923, Metcalf is a native of Ohio. He began his education at the University of Michigan in 1941 but his studies were halted during World War II. After serving in Europe, Metcalf returned to Ann Arbor and finished his degree in 1950. Upon graduation, he worked as an apprentice to George B. Brigham and began teaching Architecture at the University of Michigan. Metcalf began his own practice in 1953 and completed over 120 projects Ann Arbor and the Detroit Metro area. This exhibition presents 13 domestic projects that span his six-decade-long career from 1953-2008, highlighting his straightforward design aesthetic, featuring many of his iconic flat-roofed houses. Each project selected exemplifies Metcalf’s mid-century modern architectural vocabulary that results in functional, minimalist spaces for living.

This exhibition presents 13 domestic projects that span his six-decade-long career from 1953-2008, highlighting his straightforward design aesthetic, featuring many of his iconic flat-roofed houses. Each project selected exemplifies Metcalf’s mid-century modern architectural vocabulary that results in functional, minimalist spaces for living.

Three Michigan Architects: Part 2–Metcalf is the second in a series of three consecutive exhibitions, with subsequent presentation of domestic work by George Brigham (July 19–October 12, 2014). Part 1 of the series presented the work of David Osler (December 21, 2013–March 30, 2013). The series will culminate in Fall 2014 with a symposium, as well as the publication of Three Michigan Architects: Osler, Metcalf, and Brigham—both of which will explore the importance of this circle of Ann Arbor-based architects, situating their regional body of domestic work into the larger context of modern architecture in the U.S. that developed on the East Coast and West Coast from the 1930s–1980s.

Maxx Passion and Brittany Whitmoyer Gallery Show In an effort to address the ephemeral nature of dance, Maxx Passion and Britt Whitmoyer will co-present their MFA thesis projects as a weeklong installation in the Duderstadt Gallery where the audience can enter and exit the space daily. In Passion’s pre-made/re-made, her dance work lives on the screen, and among photographs, sculptures and soundscapes made by a collaborative web of artists. Whitmoyer’s The Bones of Your Beliefs is an exploration into the relationship between dance, film and audience, and what happens when they intersect. How does an audience respond to dance work made for the screen, and how much do the senses of our eyes and ears play a role in our perception? 12pm-6pm daily

Big Data, Little Data, No Data: Scholarship in the Networked World

Event Type:
Workshop / Seminar
Sponsor:
School of Information
Time:
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Location:
North Quad
Room:
Ehrlicher Room, 3100

The enthusiasm for “big data” is obscuring the complexity and diversity of data in scholarship. Inside the black box of “data” is a plethora of behavioral, technological, and policy issues. Publish or perish remains the clarion call of today’s scholars. Now they are being asked to release their data as well, which marks a fundamental transition in scholarly communication. Data are not shiny objects that are easily exchanged. Rather, they are fuzzy and poorly bounded entities. Data flows are uneven – abundant in some areas and sparse in others, either easily or rarely shared.

Open access and open data are contested concepts that are often conflated. Data practices are local, varying from field to field, individual to individual, and country to country. Data can serve as a lens to observe the rapidly changing landscape of scholarly practice in the sciences, social sciences, and the humanities. Many stakeholders are taking up the challenges and opportunities of managing this deluge of data: libraries, archives, private companies, and the scholars themselves. This talk is a preview of the book by this title.

Free and open to the public. Reception to follow.

About the event

In a conversation moderated by Susan Waltz, Margo Picken and John Ciorciari will discuss the positive and negative effects of the UN-backed Khmer Rouge trials that began several years ago in "extraordinary chambers" of the courts of Cambodia. Will they bring "closure" to the country's dark past? What impact have they had on the situation of human rights in Cambodia today?

This event is co-sponsored by the Human Rights Initiative at the University of Michigan's International Institute.

About the speakers

Margo Picken joins us following a senior fellowship with the London School of Economics. Margo has worked in the field of human rights for much of her professional career.

Most recently, she worked for the United Nations as director of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Cambodia from 2001 to 2007. She was responsible for the human rights program of the Ford Foundation from 1988 to 1995. She established and directed the Office of Amnesty International at the United Nations in New York from 1976 to 1987. She holds a master's degree in International Relations from the University of London.

John Ciorciari's interests include international law, politics, and international finance. His current research projects focus primarily on the Asia-Pacific region, and examine foreign policy strategies, human rights, and the reform of international economic institutions.

He has served as a National Fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, and as a Shorenstein Fellow at the university's Asia-Pacific Research Center. From 2004-07, he served as a policy official in the U.S. Treasury Department's Office of International Affairs. Since 1999, he has been a legal advisor to the Documentation Center of Cambodia, which promotes historical memory and justice for the atrocities of the Pol Pot regime.

Off Campus Location
Room:
The Ark, 316 S. Main, Ann Arbor, MI

Singer-songwriter Colyn Cameron of Wake Owl has been immersed in the world of music for the past ten years. Now based in Vancouver, BC, and Portland, OR, Colyn was originally born and raised in southern California. After graduation Colyn trained in organic agriculture at Emerson College in England, worked on different farms throughout the UK, Germany, Chile, and Canada and traveled the world. Upon returning from his travels, Colyn spent some time playing in bands before deciding to record the songs he had written after his journey, and thus began his first completed body of work, the "Wild Country" EP, which served as a prelude to the band Wake Owl’s debut full-length, "The Private World of Paradise," with more of a rock-band instrumental sound. Recorded at National Freedom studios in Oregon with producer Richard Swift (The Shins, Foxygen), that album is effortlessly cohesive, telling stories of love, loss, and dreams. “ The title was a phrase that came to me one day and just stuck with me,” notes Colyn, “I wrote it down a lot and the more I thought about it the more I realized a lot of the songs on the album were me in some sort of paradisiacal imaginative state."The Private World of Paradise" places playful experimentation and raw emotion in perfect harmony, and it showcases a fine new songwriting voice. The young Sub Pop-label British songwriter Lyla Foy opens.
