Sonic Rebellion: Music as Resistance
September 8, 2017 - January 7, 2018

Sonic Rebellion connects Detroit’s musical and political histories with a wide range of artworks and artifacts to offer a listening space for the Rebellion’s reverberations. The Rebellion must be listened to and heard if it is ever to be understood. The show connects these historic events to more recent social movements, from Occupy to Black Lives Matter, illustrating threads between past protests and the unresolved racial politics in the United States today. One major such thread is the role of music as a catalyst for social change and empowerment.

I am you, you are too

September 7, 2017 - October 27, 2019

At a time of heightened uncertainty, division, and geopolitical tensions, I am you, you are too foregrounds works from the Walker’s collections that explore contemporary life through themes of citizenship and belonging, borders and barriers, and ways in which everyday life informs our understanding of ourselves. Bringing together a diverse, multigenerational, and international group of artists, the exhibition questions how we memorialize the past and understand the social, geographic, and political structures that shape us.

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.
