As part of our exciting new Hub lecture series, the Institute for the Humanities offers a visit to the UMMA New Media Gallery exhibition Affecting the Audience: Anthony Discenza, Aurélien Froment, and Dora García (on view through April 27, 2014), followed by an engaging discussion in which U-M Stamps School faculty and artists Heidi Kumao, Matt Kenyon, and Melanie Manos, Screen Arts and Cultures faculty Terri Sarris, and Instiute for the Humanities arts curator Amanda Krugliak consider the ways in which contemporary artists embrace temporality, theatricality and affective strategies to directly engage the viewer as audience.

Program attendees are invited to enjoy the exhibition in UMMA’s Apse and New Media Gallery from 5:30 to 6pm. The discussion will follow in the Multipurpose Room.
