UMMA and the Ann Arbor Summer Festival welcome artist Mary Mattingly to Ann Arbor for a 3-day residency, June 27 - June 30. Mattingly, whose photograph Life of Objects is featured in UMMA’s exhibition The World to Come, is deeply concerned with our relationships to objects—where they come from, where they go, their implications for humans, and their impact on the environment.
Mattingly will lead Objects in the Round, a large-scale collaborative public art project over three evenings in which Mattingly and other festival goers and build and explore together. On Sunday, June 30, participants are invited to deconstruct the installation. Following the deconstruction, join the artist in the Grove for a gathering.
