ESTHER SHALEV-GERZ: SELECTIONS FROM THE GOLD ROOM

First exhibited in The Swedish History Museum, we are pleased to bring an excerpt of Esther Shalev-Gerz’s “The Gold Room” to Detroit. These portraits capture and unfold stories through conversation around five artifacts from the museum’s collection and five objects brought overseas by refugees. Highlighting the cultural and personal value of these objects, Shalev-Gerz floats a gold square over the works that veil the images while simultaneously opening passageways into the past.

FELICE PAZNER MALKIN: A RETROSPECTIVE

Since 1949, Felice has been living and working in Israel. This exhibition includes drawings, paintings, and prints spanning nearly 60 years of her artistic career. The selection focuses on Felice’s body of self portraiture and other figurative works that not only depict the features of her subjects but draw out their essence and the emotional connection we have with one another. Felice’s dedication to this practice was previously celebrated in Detroit with her exhibition “Jewish Figurative Art” at the Center for Secular Humanist Judaism in 1996.

PORTRAY: A GROUP SHOW

Portray brings together 14 artists working in a wide range of media – painting, photography, sculpture and video. The work featured in “Portray” combines the classical with the contemporary through inventive approaches to material, playful juxtapositions, and a twist on traditional portraiture. Artists include: Ken Aptekar, Adnan Charara, Donald Dietz, Matthew Hansel, Robert Raphael, Michael Scoggins, Esterio Segura, Susan Silas, William Irving Singer, Ryan Standfest, Koen Vanmechelen, Jamie Vasta, Bruno Walpoth, and Hirosuke Yabe.
