In Curriculum / Collection, an incredible variety of University of Michigan courses take material form. Collected for each course are objects that address the nature of materiality, time, and human interaction in relation to our environments, our wars, our relationships, and our eccentricities. 

Working in collaboration with University faculty, the works in this exhibition were selected for their capacity to provoke engagement with the guiding questions and themes of their specific courses, while also offering students inspiration for research and art projects in their areas of study. The exhibition demonstrates some of the diverse and creative ways art plays a central role in learning across the disciplines. It also asks us to consider what we can learn from art objects across an infinite variety of specialties and subject matter.

As classes begin in Fall of 2021, you’ll be able to use these pages to explore the collections designed for each course, dive into the works themselves, and hear from the professors and students about how they are engaging with art and objects in new ways. Who knows, maybe you’ll learn something surprising along the way, too.

Lead support for this exhibition is provided by the University of Michigan Office of the Provost, Erica Gervais Pappendick and Ted Pappendick, and the Eleanor Noyes Crumpacker Endowment Fund.
