Abstract Ancestry: Machine-Works on Paper

Matthew Angelo Harrison, Efroymson Emerging Artist in Residence
Thursday, April 5, 2018
9:00 AM-5:00 PM
Institute for the Humanities Gallery 202 S. Thayer Map
Detroit-based artist Matthew Angelo Harrison takes a satirical look at historical narratives—exploring issues of race, design, mortality and industry—by making use of analog and digital technologies. For his solo show, "Abstract Ancestry," at University of Michigan Institute for the Humanities, Harrison will produce a suite of mechanical drawings with his homemade 3D printer. Using books and documents containing problematic historical portrayals as the substrate for his drawings, Harrison is able to explore issues of representation. The exhibition also examines abstraction, setting the printers to work at a low resolution ensures that imperfections and variability come through in these machine-produced drawings.

On April 5, join us as we celebrate the opening of our final exhibition of the academic year with our 2018 Efroymson Emerging Artist in Residence Matthew Angelo Harrison. Harrison will be in conversation with curator Amanda Krugliak.

This project is funded by a grant from the Efroymson Family Fund.
