The Idea is the Machine That Makes the Art

The UM Contemporary Directions Ensemble, led by Christopher Lees, will perform pieces inspired by literary narratives, including Shakespeare's The Tempest and the writings of Rumi, among others, offering a musical riff on Mai-Thu Perret's exploration of literature as the inspiration for her own multidisciplinary artwork. The exhibition will be viewable from 7:30 to 8pm and during intermission.

The SMTD at UMMA concert series is copresented by the University of Michigan Museum of Art and the UM School of Music, Theatre, and Dance, with additional support from the Katherine Tuck Enrichment Fund.

Mai-Thu Perret: An Ideal for Living and related programs are made possible in part by the University of Michigan Health System, Office of the Provost, the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, Macy's, and other generous donors.
