UMMA After Hours: Fall Opening

Join us to celebrate an exciting new season at UMMA! Enjoy live music, gallery talks, artmaking, food, and more at this free community event.

Painter and printmaker Meleko Mokgosi’s newly commissioned work, Pan-African Pulp, transforms UMMA’s Vertical Gallery into a multimedia exploration of the history of global Pan-Africanism, a movement with significant history in Detroit. Mokgosi will give a talk at 7:30 p.m. in the Auditorium.

This fall, UMMA launches a new experimental space, ArtGym, with Take Your Pick: Collecting Found Photographs. Cast your vote and be part of our crowdsourcing experiment to choose the 250 photographs UMMA will add to our permanent collection.

Copies and Invention in East Asia, in our Taubman Gallery, will challenge your understanding of originality and delight you with an exploration of Japanese, Chinese, and Korean art spanning ancient to contemporary times.

We look forward to seeing you there!
