Being Human: Contemporary Art from the Rubell Museum

This exhibition explores the diverse world of contemporary art through the lens of the Rubell Museum’s collection. Art of the late 20th and early 21st centuries generally defy categorization and the “-isms” common in previous stylistic movements. However, the works selected from the Rubell Collection for this exhibition share the common theme of depicting the complexity of experiences that make us human.  Through painting, sculpture, and photography, these artworks ignite emotional responses to various issues, including gender, race, sexuality, embodiment, identity, love, life, and death. By contemplating the past, present, and future, artists interpret their own and others’ existence through a thought-provoking visual vocabulary that transcends the limits of language. Not meant to be an exhaustive or universal picture of contemporary art, Being Human highlights some of the best works and artists from the Rubell Museum, located in Miami, Florida, some of which will be seen at the FIA for the first time. Nor… Institute: Flint Institute of Arts. Event Type: Exhibits. Friday, August 19, 2022, 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM. For more info visit flintarts.org.

Minglings: A Journey Across Time

Inspired by a tapestry remnant from the Ming dynasty, Gerhardt Knodel creates a series of vibrant, abstracted forms out of thousands of pieces of contemporary fabric. Knodel has contributed to the evolution and identity of contemporary fiber art for more than four decades. He is a former director and fiber department head at Cranbrook Academy of Art. He currently maintains a studio in Pontiac, Michigan. Institute: Flint Institute of Arts. Event Type: Art. Exhibits. Friday, August 19, 2022, 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

The Power of Print

The Power of Print June 18, 2022 - August 21, 2022 Graphics Gallery In the early 20th century, between the two world wars, a group of artists in the United States used printmaking to shed light on the major issues that faced the country, such as staggering levels of unemployment, economic instability, and poverty. This group, including such names as Adolf Dehn, Blanche Grambs, Harry Gottlieb, Harry Sternberg, and William Gropper were known as Social Realist artists since they used art to not only express their point of view but also as an instrument to bring about social change. Printmaking was an influential tool as it was more affordable and accessible than other forms of art—both for artists to create and for people to purchase. The Power of Print will feature works from Social Realist artists that address the major concerns of the early 20th century, many of which are still relevant today, including working conditions, fascism, racism, and women’s roles. Institute: Flint Institute of Arts. Event Type: Exhibits. Art. Friday, August 19, 2022, 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM. For more info visit flintarts.org.

Walk on the Wild Side

Walk on the Wild Side August 6, 2022 - February 5, 2023 Ann K. Walch-Chan Gallery Animals, both real and mythological, have occupied an important place in art from prehistoric to modern times, often carrying a rich variety of symbolic associations. These creatures have served as vehicles for allegory, moral instruction, and have stood as symbols for power and social status. The human relationship with other species is complex and ever-changing with images of animals in art continuing to entertain and inspire us.  From functional to decorative, the artworks in Walk on the Wild Side feature various animal groups from amphibians and reptiles to mammals and the fantastical hybrid creatures. The exhibition, drawn from the FIA’s permanent collection, explores animals and their place in culture through three-dimensional works of various time periods and media including stone, ceramic, and glass.

Being Human: Contemporary Art from the Rubell Museum

This exhibition explores the diverse world of contemporary art through the lens of the Rubell Museum’s collection. Art of the late 20th and early 21st centuries generally defy categorization and the “-isms” common in previous stylistic movements. However, the works selected from the Rubell Collection for this exhibition share the common theme of depicting the complexity of experiences that make us human.  Through painting, sculpture, and photography, these artworks ignite emotional responses to various issues, including gender, race, sexuality, embodiment, identity, love, life, and death. By contemplating the past, present, and future, artists interpret their own and others’ existence through a thought-provoking visual vocabulary that transcends the limits of language. Not meant to be an exhaustive or universal picture of contemporary art, Being Human highlights some of the best works and artists from the Rubell Museum, located in Miami, Florida, some of which will be seen at the FIA for the first time. Nor… Institute: Flint Institute of Arts. Event Type: Exhibits. Thursday, August 25, 2022, 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM. For more info visit flintarts.org.

Walk on the Wild Side

Walk on the Wild Side August 6, 2022 - February 5, 2023 Ann K. Walch-Chan Gallery Animals, both real and mythological, have occupied an important place in art from prehistoric to modern times, often carrying a rich variety of symbolic associations. These creatures have served as vehicles for allegory, moral instruction, and have stood as symbols for power and social status. The human relationship with other species is complex and ever-changing with images of animals in art continuing to entertain and inspire us.  From functional to decorative, the artworks in Walk on the Wild Side feature various animal groups from amphibians and reptiles to mammals and the fantastical hybrid creatures. The exhibition, drawn from the FIA’s permanent collection, explores animals and their place in culture through three-dimensional works of various time periods and media including stone, ceramic, and glass.

Walk on the Wild Side

Walk on the Wild Side August 6, 2022 - February 5, 2023 Ann K. Walch-Chan Gallery Animals, both real and mythological, have occupied an important place in art from prehistoric to modern times, often carrying a rich variety of symbolic associations. These creatures have served as vehicles for allegory, moral instruction, and have stood as symbols for power and social status. The human relationship with other species is complex and ever-changing with images of animals in art continuing to entertain and inspire us.  From functional to decorative, the artworks in Walk on the Wild Side feature various animal groups from amphibians and reptiles to mammals and the fantastical hybrid creatures. The exhibition, drawn from the FIA’s permanent collection, explores animals and their place in culture through three-dimensional works of various time periods and media including stone, ceramic, and glass.
