Learn, Connect, Collect Event

April 7, 2018

The Detroit Artists Market presents Learn, Collect, Connect, a conversation with art experts on cultivating a passion for collecting. This entertaining event features Liz DuMouchelle and Ryan Kortman, two accomplished collectors who share their stories and provide advice on how to build a collection of your own. Liz DuMouchelle has been a student of art history since the 1960s and an art collector since the 1980s. A retired former attorney, Liz married into the DuMouchelle family and has played an important role in the well known Detroit auction house of the same name. Ryan Kortman started collecting art at age 25, upon graduating from the School of the Arts Institute of Chicago. Ryan and wife Jessica now have a collection of more than 80 works by 44 different artists, and many of these works were discovered using social media. Guests will also enjoy the final day of DAM’s Annual Scholarship Awards & Exhibition, which features artwork from CCS students, faculty and alumni.

Event Details: Saturday, April 7, 2018, 1 p.m.

Matter Out of Place

January 19 – February 17, 2018

MATTER OUT OF PLACE
Curated by Andrew Thompson
Matter Out of Place is a group exhibition of craft, fine art and design projects that explore the shifting meanings of decontextualized objects from industrial and cultural production. Preexisting objects, images and narratives are contested, critiqued and renewed via physical and metaphoric means of collage and assemblage. The work illuminates the importance of intentionality for both maker and viewer in the creation of the art experience.
