Reductive Minimalism: Women Artists in Dialogue, 1960—2014

Saturday, November 22, 7 pm - 9 pm

A. Alfred Taubman Gallery I

UMMA’s exhibition of women Minimalist painters celebrates the exchange of ideas between two generations of artists. Newly appointed U-M Jazz piano professor Benny Green makes his UMMA debut with an exploration of his musical lineage. This performance will be a dialogue with the past, the present, and the future of Jazz.

Lead support for the exhibition Reductive Minimalism: Women Artists in Dialogue, 1960-2014 is provided by the University of Michigan Office of the Provost, the University of Michigan Health System, and the Richard and Rosann Noel Endowment Fund. Additional generous support is provided by the Susan and Richard Gutow Fund, Elaine Pitt, the University of Michigan CEW Frances and Sydney Lewis Visiting Leaders Fund and Department of the History of Art, the Katherine Tuck Enrichment Fund, and the Doris Sloan Memorial Fund.

The SMTD@UMMA performance series is made possible in part by the Katherine Tuck Enrichment Fund.

Fred Tomaselli’s works rearrange realities, commingling elements of reality and surreality. His work draws on a wide range of sources. This exhibition will be comprised primarily of Tomaselli’s New York Times collages begun in 2005, which alter the front pages of that daily newspaper. His manipulation of the cover page image through his application of collage, gouache, and watercolor, sets up a striking contrast between the somber detachment of journalistic language that surrounds them. The results are sometimes funny, sometimes sinister, and often both.

Drawn from the extensive holdings of the William L. Clements Library at the University of Michigan (U-M), this exhibition illustrates the rich history of the city of Detroit through maps, letters, prints, and photographs. From its beginnings as a French outpost to its emergence as a manufacturing powerhouse, the exhibition will focus on the city's growth,  its people, and its legacy. In addition to the riches in this exhibition, docents will explore connections to Detroit found in the permanent collections.
