November 5

UMMA Projects: Simon Dybbroe Møller

Friday, November 5, 5:10–7 p.m.
Helmut Stern Auditorium

Danish artist Simon Dybbroe Møller will speak about his work, which often presents familiar forms in unexpected configurations. An abstract wall painting emerges from beneath a layer of peeling plaster. A group of minimalist sculptures turn out to be the pieces of an enlarged Soma cube. This uncertainty is central to the experience of Dybbroe Møller's work, where an initial misrecognition leads to a moment of aesthetic discovery. Meet the artist in the gallery after the talk.

This program is made possible in part by the University of Michigan Office of the Provost, The Danish Arts Council Committee for International Visual Art, The American-Scandinavian Foundation, and UMMA's New Visions Venture Fund, including the Susan and Richard Gutow Fund.
