UrbanLab: Bowling, new book by Sarah Dunn and Martin Felsen

UrbanLab: Bowling

As populations steadily increase in cities, the world’s natural resources are consumed at ever-faster rates. The majority of the world’s populations live in countries where clean water supplies are dwindling, and these water shortages are also quickly translating into food shortages. What can designers do to avert looming water-related realities? UrbanLab: Bowling views potential water crises as opportunities to speculate on future urban design possibilities, especially in cities. Several projects are presented that take an ecological approach to re-thinking received urban design methodologies of addressing the design of water-related infrastructures in existing and new cities.

Art of Rebellion: Black Art of the Civil Rights Movement

July 23 - October 22, 2017

Explore powerful artworks by African American artists who formed collectives during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and 1970s. These collectives, made up of artists working together in distinct groups, created art specifically for African American audiences that asserted black identity and racial justice.

This exhibition includes 34 paintings, sculptures, installations and photographs produced by artists working both collectively and independently to address social and political issues surrounding the Civil Rights Movement and today. Situated within the story of these collectives is the Detroit rebellion of 1967.

Prospect 2017

May 19 - July 23, 2017


Prospect 2017 features eight artists whose works reflect the Museum’s curatorial interests: Amy Adler (b. 1966), Math Bass (b. 1981), James Crosby (b. 1974), Jonathan Hernández (b. 1972), Tala Madani (b. 1981), Rebecca Morris (b. 1969), Barbara T. Smith (b. 1931), and Lisa Williamson (b. 1977). From these diverse practices emerge uncanny visions of daily life; material traces of the body; wry revisions of art history; and a deep engagement with political realities, past and present.
