IN SEARCH OF TIME NOVEMBER 10, 2012 – FEBRUARY 10, 2013

In Search of Time features work from the Broad MSU collection and The Broad Art Foundation, as well as other borrowed artworks. The key loans from The Broad Art Foundation (including pieces by Ed Ruscha, Joseph Beuys, Toba Khedoori, Kara Walker, Anselm Kiefer, Damien Hirst, and Andy Warhol) serve as a celebration of the long history of collecting by the museum’s founding donors. By creating dialogues among artworks from the medieval period, the pre-Columbian world, and African, Asian, European, and North American cultures of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries, this exhibition gives voice to the longing artists around the world have held for hundreds of years to express in some meaningful way their connection to time and memory.

GLOBAL GROOVE 1973 / 2012 NOVEMBER 10, 2012 – MARCH 10, 2013

In terms of the long sweep of art history, video art is a very new phenomenon. Born in the mid-1960s, when television and video technologies became available outside of broadcast studios, and pioneering artists Nam June Paik and Andy Warhol obtained their first portable video cameras, video art is now ubiquitous in the modern world . . . or at least videos have become so. YouTube alone launches 48 hours of video every minute! The art of video is another matter, and that is the subject of Global Groove 1973/2012, an exhibition that celebrates this art form by paying homage to its first major practitioner, Nam June Paik (1932–2006), and offering an overview of current examples of the genre by an international sampling of artists, some of whom are working under very difficult political constraints.

ARTISTS IN THE EXHIBITION

Bashar Alhroub (Palestinian Territories); Negar Behbahani (Iran); Berry Bickle (Zimbabwe); Sam Jury (Great Britain); Lee Yongbaek (South Korea); Li Ming (China); Basir Mahmood (Pakistan); Zwelethu Mthethwa and Matthew Hindley (South Africa); Nam June Paik (South Korea); The Propeller Group (Vietnam); Eve Sussman and Simon Lee (USA); Zhao Yao (China). Global Groove 1973/2012 is curated by Michael Rush, Founding Director, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

This exhibition features Lee Yongbeak’s Angel Soldier (2011), Sam Jury’s Another Thing Coming 004 (2010), and Nothing is Lost 002 (2010) from the Broad MSU’s permanent collection. This exhibition is organized by the Broad MSU. Support is provided by the Broad MSU’s general exhibitions fund. Photo: Lee Yongbaek, Angel Soldier, 2005.

MARCO BRAMBILLA EVOLUTION (MEGAPLEX) NOVEMBER 10, 2012 – FEBRUARY 24, 2013

Evolution (Megaplex), Brambilla’s first work to be executed in stereoscopic 3-D, illustrates sweeping movements of world conflict through a vast side-scrolling video mural that moves seamlessly between past, present, and future. The artist created this large-scale video collage—which is set to Sergei Prokofiev’s score for the ballet Romeo and Juliet—by remixing hundreds of individual channels of looped footage gathered from sources ranging from Hollywood blockbusters (E.T., Mad Max, Star Wars) to cult classics (Idiocracy, Zardoz, Salò). Using the lens of cinema to mine the bombastic spectacle of human history, Brambilla invites viewers to roam whimsically through the annals of time and offers a satirical take on the swagger of the big-budget “epic.”

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Marco Brambilla (b. 1960, Milan, Italy) studied film at Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada. His work has been exhibited internationally at such institutions as the Kunsthalle Bern, screened at the Sundance and Cannes film festivals. Brambilla has been awarded both the Tiffany Comfort Foundation and Colbert Foundation awards for his video installations. He currently lives and works in New York and Los Angeles. Marco Brambilla: Evolution (Megaplex) is curated by Michael Rush, Founding Director, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

IÑIGO MANGLANO-OVALLE RED FACTOR NOVEMBER 10, 2012 – FEBRUARY 24, 2013

Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle is known for his architectural interventions, which often take the form of architecture-within-architecture. Red Factor features a large geodesic dome comprised of nylon fabric, aluminum tubes, and cable, all under precise tension. The geodesic hemisphere is a direct reference to Buckminster Fuller, the American architect, engineer, inventor, and futurist who began experimenting with these structures in the mid-1940s. The colorful bird, which is perched on the primary cable piercing the gallery space, is a Red Factor Canary, from the order of Passeriformes (known as perching birds). Its gaze is indifferent to the ideologically charged structures that hover above; instead, the bird focuses upon the viewer, who is perhaps the true subject of this work.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Manglano-Ovalle was born in Madrid, Spain, in 1961, and was raised in Bogotá, Colombia, and Chicago, Illinois. He earned an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (1989). He has received many awards, including a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Award (2001) and a Media Arts Award from the Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, Ohio (1997–2001), as well as a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts (1995). Manglano-Ovalle lives and works in Chicago, Illinois. Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle: Red Factor is curated by Michael Rush, Founding Director, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

This exhibition features Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle’s Red Factor (2012) from the Broad MSU’s permanent collection. This exhibition is organized by the Broad MSU.

MARJETICA POTRČ SOWETO HOUSE WITH PREPAID WATER METER NOVEMBER 10, 2012 – FEBRUARY 24, 2013

Marjetica Potrč’s interdisciplinary practice includes site-specific projects, drawings, and architectural case studies. Her work investigates, documents, and interprets contemporary approaches to urban planning and the distribution of resources such as energy and water. Soweto House with Prepaid Water Meter was inspired by the controversy surrounding the installation of prepaid water meters in the Soweto township of Phiri in Johannesburg in 2006. Potrč explains, “the Phiri water case shows us the future that may await other urban communities who as yet do not live under water-stressed conditions. Water is the most precious resource of our century: without water, there is no life.”

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Marjetica Potrč was born in Ljubljana in 1953. She graduated from the Department of Architecture in 1977, and from the Academy of Visual Arts in 1986, both at the University of Ljubljana. Her work has been exhibited extensively throughout Europe and the Americas, including in such major exhibitions as the Venice Biennial (1993, 2003, 2009), the São Paulo Biennial (1996, 2006), and Skulptur: Projekte in Münster, Germany (1997). Marjetica Potrč’: Soweto House with Prepaid Water Meter is curated by Michael Rush, Founding Director, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

NGUYEN PHUONG LINH BOAT NOVEMBER 10, 2012 – FEBRUARY 24, 2013

Made of three tons of Vietnamese sea salt bound with water, Boat is inspired by the salt villages of northern Vietnam. Nguyen conceived of this work as “a sculpture in the shape of a simple boat made of solid salt. I like the idea of the boat because it has so many metaphors: an eye, a fish, a leaf, a piece of rice, a grave, a boat itself going to be dissolved in the sea. I didn’t think about cultural custom or censorship in this work but more about creating a minimal landscape in space.” The sculpture is intended to dematerialize while it is on view. As the water evaporates, the salt begins to crumble and dissolve, its disappearing form symbolizing the way that events in history may slip away from memory or exist only as fragmented forms in our minds.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Born in Hanoi in 1985, Nguyen Phuong Linh has exhibited and held artist residencies with the Borsa di Studio of the Accademia Albertina delle Belle Arti (Turin, Italy) and Yunnan-Vietnam Female Artists Exchange program (Kunming, China). In Vietnam she has participated in group shows such as Chewing in 10+ at Nha San Studio and To be born at Campus Hanoi. Nguyen Phuong Linh: Boat is curated by Michael Rush, Founding Director, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

CHEN QIULIN SELECTED WORKS NOVEMBER 10, 2012 – FEBRUARY 24, 2013

In May 2008, just months before the Beijing Olympics, a devastating earthquake struck Sichuan Province, killing hundreds of thousands of people. Chen Qiulin’s Floating series responds directly to that catastrophe, adding a distinctly personal tenor to an event many only learned about through the media. These floating human figures, sculpted in papier-mâché made primarily with paper scavenged from the detritus of the disaster, have the rough surfaces of industrial materials. The sculptures’ movements evoke the graceful postures of dance and traumatic visions of bodies falling in space. Personal history drives Chen’s practice, but in creating such plays between opposites, she asks viewers to bring their own histories to their encounters with her work.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Chen Qiulin was born in China in 1975 and now lives and works in Chengdu, Sichuan Province. She graduated from the printmaking department of the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute in 2000. She has had solo exhibitions at the Today Art Museum, Beijing; University Art Museum, University of Albany; Max Protetch, New York; Long March Space, Beijing; Big Factory, Shanghai; and Internet Affairs, Chengdu. In 2007 she was awarded an Asian Cultural Council grant. Chen Qiulin: Selected Works is curated by Michael Rush, Founding Director, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

JOCHEN GERZ THE GIFT: LANSING, MICHIGAN NOVEMBER 10, 2012 – JULY 21, 2013

Since October 29, 2012, local residents—the people who have built and will be part of this new museum—have had the opportunity to pose for portraits at an instant photo lab. The resulting photographs are printed immediately, inserted into frames, and installed here as a monumental wall of gridded portraits—an ever-changing collection of faces that continues to grow as more and more visitors sit for the camera. The Gift: Lansing, Michigan is ultimately both a portrait of a community and an investigation of the museum’s place within that community. The project breaks down the traditional divide between viewer and art object, literally making visitors part of a work of art.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Jochen Gerz was born in Berlin in 1940. He currently lives and works in Ireland. Gerz is a member of the Academy of the Arts, Berlin, and an honorary professor at the Braunschweig University of Fine Arts. Awards and honors include: German Critics’ Choice Award, Berlin 1996; Ordre National du Mérite, Paris 1996; Peter Weiss Award, Bochum 1996; Grand Prix National des Arts Visuels, Paris 1998. Jochen Gerz: The Gift: Lansing, Michigan is curated by Alison Gass, Curator of Contemporary Art, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

FRITZ HAEG DOMESTIC INTEGRITIES NOVEMBER 10, 2012 – FEBRUARY 14, 2013

Los Angeles-based artist Fritz Haeg is renowned for his commitment to collaborative, environmentally engaged, and educational art production. Here Haeg explores the patterns and rituals of local domestic landscapes, mapping the ways objects alter the conditions of being in a space and revealing the ways in which sharing local resources can create collective experiences. Domestic Integrities is centered on a spiral-stitched circular rug that will continue to grow over the course of the installation. Made of used and discarded textiles, including clothing, athletic gear, and bed linens donated or disposed of by local participants, it was produced as part of a community crochet project the artist organized with student groups and other volunteers in the months leading up to the opening of the museum.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Fritz Haeg (b. 1969) studied architecture in Italy at the Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia and Carnegie Mellon University, where he received his B. Arch. He was a Rome Prize fellow-in-residence at the American Academy in Rome from 2010–2011, a MacDowell Colony Fellow (2007, 2009, and 2010), Montalvo Arts Center fellow (2012), and nominated for National Design Awards in 2009 and 2010. Fritz Haeg: Domestic Integrities is curated by Alison Gass, Curator of Contemporary Art, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

NAIZA KHAN KARACHI ELEGIES FEBRUARY 22 – MAY 26, 2013

Pakistani artist Naiza Khan captures the experience of living and working in Karachi, where everyday life has been disrupted by natural disaster, migration to the city, and political violence. For her first solo museum exhibition in the United States, Khan will show oil paintings, sculpture, and video works that map the tragic geography of violence in Karachi and place the human figure within it. Khan uses the term “disrupted geography” to describe her oil paintings and video works, in which she layers striking images and words to create a dream-like topography. In artworks of extraordinary beauty, Khan’s work provides a complex and sensitive window onto life in one of the world’s most troubled cities.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Born in Bahawalpur, Pakistan, in 1968, Naiza Khan is based in Karachi, Pakistan. Raised in England, Khan trained at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, University of Oxford, and Wimbledon College of Art, University of the Arts, London. Her work has been widely exhibited internationally. Khan is currently a lecturer in the Department of Visual Studies at the University of Karachi. Naiza Khan: Karachi Elegies is curated by Karin Zitzewitz, Assistant Professor at Michigan State University.

This exhibition is organized by the Broad MSU. Support is provided by Dipti and Rakesh Mathur. Additional funding is provided by the Asian Studies Center at Michigan State University, the American Institute of Pakistan Studies, and the Broad MSU’s general exhibitions fund.

GUILLERMO KUITCA DIARIOS FEBRUARY 22 – MAY 26, 2013

Since 1994 Argentinean artist Guillermo Kuitca has taken discarded canvases, stretched them over a round table in his studio, and, for periods of time ranging from about three to six months, drawn, doodled, and written on this surface, creating a personal diary. The completion of each Diario is governed by time rather than a consideration of form. Phone numbers, titles of paintings, email addresses, traces of objects that sat on the surface, and lists record the ebb and flow of life inside and outside the studio. The final artworks become a hybrid of intentionality and chance; they are narrative paintings without plots, abstractions without balanced compositions.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Guillermo Kuitca was born on January 22, 1961 in the Belgrano neighborhood of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Kuitca’s first exhibition was at the age of thirteen at Galeria Lirolay in Buenos Aires and he has continued a productive path over nearly four decades. Guillermo Kuitca: Diarios is curated by Brett Littman, Executive Director at The Drawing Center, New York.

This exhibition is organized by The Drawing Center, New York. Guillermo Kuitca: Diarios is made possible in part by Bettina and Donald Bryant, Jr.; Charles Van Campenhout and Risteard Keating; Marlene Hess and James D. Zirin; Solita and Steven Mishaan; Cindy and Howard Rachofsky; and an anonymous donor. Special thanks to Sperone Westwater, New York.

GEOMETRIES SELECTIONS FROM THE COLLECTION FEBRUARY 22 – MAY 23, 2013

Geometry deals with the measurement and properties of lines, shapes, and angles, and the relative position of forms within space. For the past 50 years these very same elements, though drawn from a field of mathematics, have been at the heart of abstract art making. The works in this gallery delineate the development of a systematic approach to abstraction in which basic geometries create simple patterns of lines, colors, and shapes that force us to question what it is we think we see.

ARTISTS IN THE EXHIBITION

Josef Albers, Kenneth Noland, Bridget Riley, Sol LeWitt, and Kristin Cammermeyer. Geometries: Selections from the Collection is curated by Alison Gass, Curator of Contemporary Art, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

This exhibition is entirely comprised of works from the Broad MSU’s permanent collection. This exhibition is organized by the Broad MSU.

PATTERN FOLLOW THE RULES MARCH 22 – AUGUST 11, 2013

Pattern is currently being reinvigorated as a significant space for artistic innovation. Each artist presented here begins with some system or set of rules, whether mechanical, technological, digital, or other, and, through rigorous repetitive action, creates objects that are equally rigorous in their optical repetition. With this comes a critical redefinition of pattern: These artists explore iterative generation of form, using a framework more akin to a mathematical pattern or a computer pattern than to a purely visual process focused on decoration or ornamentation. Yet the resulting compositions are highly decorative, visually dynamic, and spectacularly patterned in the traditional sense of the term. Regardless of the mode of making or the content within the form, each work in the exhibition asks us to reevaluate the way we see and experience the spaces we are in,

the objects we confront, and the relationship between vision and perception. ARTISTS IN THE EXHIBITION

Walead Beshty, Teresita Fernández, Mark Grotjahn, Shirazeh Houshiary, Zilvinas Kempinas, Jason Middlebrook, Mai-Thu Perret, Ara Peterson, Hugh Scott-Douglas, Alyson Shotz, Rudolf Stingel, Tam Van Tran, Garth Weiser, Pae White, and Christopher Wool.

VARIATIONS ON A LINE (MOVING) MARCH 22 – MAY 26, 2013

The use of “patterns” has a long history in moving image art, predating Minimalism and other expressions of repetition, including performance. Duchamp’s first foray into film, Anemic Cinema, 1926, is a dizzying series of rotating discs, crosscut with nine nonsensical phrases reflecting the artist’s propensity for puns. The optical repetitions and manipulations are hypnotic. Film, after all, is a pastiche of second-by-second movements edited together to look as if the movements are continuous. The mainstay of American avant-garde cinema, Structuralism, is itself an ongoing examination of patterning: image after image (most often abstract) repeated and reworked endlessly (as in the work of Stan Brakhage) to create a demystified cinema that really is nothing

more than its constituent parts, thus eliminating any of the “emotionalism” of narrative cinema. ARTISTS IN THE EXHIBITION

Sharon Louden, James Whitney, John Whitney, and Stan Van Der Beeck. Variations on a Line (Moving) is curated by Michael Rush, Founding Director, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

LISA WALCOTT LESS STILL JULY 19 – OCTOBER 20, 2013

This exhibition of recent works by Michigan-based kinetic sculptor Lisa Walcott is the first installment in the MSU Federal Credit Union Artist Studio Series, a new program organized by the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University and generously supported by MSU Federal Credit Union. Walcott uses simple mechanisms and banal materials to produce movement, offering interactive experiences that strike a playful balance between planned agitation, repetition, and unexpected displacements. Swarm and Vice Versa, for example, engage various sightlines throughout the museum, creating surprising relationships with the museum’s architecture. Throughout her work, Walcott explores mundane moments extracted

from familiar spaces, capturing the lyricism of the unseen and giving visual articulation to the unsaid. ABOUT THE ARTIST

Based in the Midwest, Lisa Walcott received her MFA in Sculpture from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2010 and has continued to create and exhibit nationally. Lisa Walcott: Less Still is curated by Aimee Shapiro, Director of Education, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

This exhibition is organized by the Broad MSU as part of the MSU Federal Credit Union Artist Studio Series, a program that invites artists to interact with the community through site-specific installations and educational encounters that offers insight into artists’ creative processes.

THE GENRES PORTRAITURE FEATURING HOPE GANGLOFF SEPTEMBER 6 – DECEMBER 1, 2013

New York–based artist Hope Gangloff (b. 1974) traffics in cultural signs and signifiers. Her paintings of twenty-first-century bohemians—primarily her friends and fellow artists caught seemingly unaware in moments of leisure—are reminiscent of both the subject matter and lush, colorful brushwork of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century painters such as Vincent van Gogh, Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt, and Edgar Degas. Such associations create an intriguing (if at times unintended) link between the historical avant-garde and post-postmodern hipsterism. A selection of Gangloff’s recent paintings are entangled in a nineteenth-century “salon style” hang with works from the Broad MSU collection. Turning the highly contemporary spaces of the museum into a Parisian salon of sorts, complete with a site-specific wall-mural of her own making, Gangloff explores the concept of an

exhibition itself as a form of conceptual installation. ABOUT THE ARTIST

Hope Gangloff studied fine art at Cooper Union in New York. After leaving art school, Gangloff worked in a bronze foundry and made illustrations for publications such as The New York Times, The New Yorker, Spin Magazine, and Built by Wendy. Her work now hangs in galleries and museums around the world. The Genres: Portraiture featuring Hope Gangloff is curated by Alison Gass, Curator of Contemporary Art, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

REVELATIONS EXAMINING DEMOCRACY SEPTEMBER 20 – NOVEMBER 3, 2013

Broadly covering works produced between the 1980s and the present day, Revelations: Examining Democracy focuses on conditions within the United States and examines the fundamental tenets of democracy at large. This exhibition reveals the historical fissures, prevailing social attitudes, and political positions that have led to the rupture of core beliefs such as civil rights, equality, and justice that so many hold to be true. Consisting of works primarily from the Broad MSU collection, the contemporary American artists represented in this constellation of photography, prints, and mixed-media assemblages express a deep desire to recover collective ideals within the national consciousness. Engaging both the public and private spheres, the assembled works pose powerful questions about the experiences of marginalized communities, the role of capital and the position of the common

worker, the validity of industrialized warfare, and the excavation of overlooked cultural memories. ARTISTS IN THE EXHIBITION

Laylah Ali, Dotty Attie, Dawoud Bey, Neil J. Farkas, Tyree Guyton, Hachivi Edgar Heap of Birds, Jenny Holzer, Byron Kim, David Levinthal, Julie Mehretu, Lorna Simpson, Stan Strembicki, Bruce Thayer, James Van Der Zee, and Carrie Mae Weems. Revelations: Examining Democracy is curated by Yesomi Umolu, Assistant Curator, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

FOCUS BEVERLY FISHMAN SEPTEMBER 13, 2013 – JANUARY 5, 2014

Beverly Fishman’s latest work focuses on wavelengths that are used in medicine, such as EKGs, EEGs, and other diagnostic tests. While these wavelengths are a physical representation of specific bodily functions, Fishman uses them to comment on how medical data becomes a more important representation of the patient than the actual person in our high tech, data driven, fast paced world. Icons of pharmaceuticals subtly collaged among the data along with bright and fluorescent colored stripes of barcodes reference the temptation of marketing and a consumer-driven culture that believes in and expects a cure for every disease and discomfort. All painted on polished reflective stainless steel, allows the viewers to glean a hint of themselves through the data and decide if there really is a pill to cure their ill.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Beverly Fishman is the Artist-in-Residence and Head of Painting at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. She received her MFA degree from Yale University in 1980. Focus: Beverly Fishman is curated by Alison Gass, Curator of Contemporary Art, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

MICHELLE HANDELMAN IRMA VEP, THE LAST BREATH SEPTEMBER 20, 2013- MARCH 30, 2014

The Broad MSU presents the world premiere museum showing of Irma Vep, the last breath, a multichannel video installation by artist Michelle Handelman. Based on the silent film character Irma Vep from the film Les Vampires (dir. Louis Feuillade 1915) and the life of the actress who portrayed her, Musidora, Handelman’s work explores the shadow side of society—examining themes of criminal anxiety and the relationship between the artist and her creation (both fictional and real).

IMAGE AND IMAGINATION IN THE EUROPEAN WILD WEST OCTOBER 4 – FEBRUARY 9, 2013

The western genre comics with the longest continuous runs are British (Desperate Dan, 1937– ), Belgian (Lucky Luke, 1946– ) and Italian (Tex, 1948– ). All of these titles are practically unknown in America. Perhaps this is because they are works of imagination that routinely disregard details of landscape, geography, chronology, and possibility. To European readers, apparently, the American West is so remote that ordinary rules of verisimilitude need not be applied. Or maybe they’re just making fun of us. For Library purposes those reasons

don’t matter. Our library has been building a collection of European western comic books for 15 years now, and in these cases are displays of four important titles, plus samples of a dozen others drawn from our collection of over 500 European western volumes. Image and Imagination in the European Wild West is curated by Randall Scott, Librarian, Michigan State University Library Special Collections Division.

SHARON HAYES RICERCHE: THREE OCTOBER 18, 2013 – MARCH 9, 2014

Blurring the traditional language of documentary film making and the broader visual and narrative freedom of the realm of video art, Sharon Hayes has come to the artistic forefront in her consistent investigation of the way language and speech function in relationship to broad issues of politics and identity, both personal and collective. This single channel video installation is inspired by Italian director Pier Paolo Pasolini’s seminal film, Comizi d’Amore, 1963—a documentary work in which people from all social backgrounds are interviewed about issues of sexuality. Ricerche: three trains a more focused gaze on a unique sector of American educational society that elucidates notions of the developing identity of young people from around the world and their relationship to norms, expectations, upended traditions, and progressive expressions of freedom in gender politics and sexual identity.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

From 1999–2000, Sharon Hayes participated in the Independent Study Program at the Whitney Museum of American Art and received an MFA in from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2003. Her work has been shown worldwide, including at the Guggenheim Museum and the Tate Modern in London.

LEBBEUS WOODS, ARCHITECT NOVEMBER 22, 2013 – FEBRUARY 23, 2014

Architect Lebbeus Woods dedicated his career to probing architecture’s potential to transform the individual and the collective. His visionary drawings depict places of free thought, sometimes in identifiable locations destroyed by war or natural disaster, but often in future cities. Woods had an enormous influence on the field of architecture over the past three decades, and yet the built structures to his name are few. The extensive drawings and models on view present an original perspective on the built environment—one that holds high regard for humanity’s ability to resist, respond and create in adverse conditions.

of Architecture (1960–64). Woods was a professor of architecture at Cooper Union, where taught until his death in 2012.

STILL LIFE FEATURING JESSICA JACKSON HUTCHINS DECEMBER 13, 2013 – MARCH 23, 2014

Portland based artist, Jessica Jackson Hutchins transforms the stuff of her own domestic life and other scavenged objects in large-scale installations using ceramics, papier-mâché, and pieces of her family’s clothing to build these work into additive assemblages of sorts. Intrigued by issues of her own experience of motherhood along with longstanding formal struggles in the history of art, Hutchins’ work is simultaneously intimate and vast, melding the personal and universal. For this project, Hutchins’ three-dimensional objects, which are often abstractly figurative in their fluid forms and in their use of objects designed for the body to wear or interact with, are examined more in the context of their relationship to a practice of two-dimensional stilllife painting and ceramic objects. Through the project, questions of

what constitutes a still life are examined and the category is broadened to engage vast issue of domesticity and object-hood. ABOUT THE ARTIST

Jessica Jackson Hutchins (b. 1971, Chicago, IL) holds an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Most recently, her work has been included in solo projects at the ICA Boston and the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center and in numerous group exhibitions. The Genres: Still Life featuring Jessica Jackson Hutchins is curated by Alison Gass, Curator of Contemporary Art, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

MARGARET EVANGELINE SABACHTHANI JANUARY 17 – MARCH 30, 2014

New York-based, Louisiana-born painter Margaret Evangeline has long experimented with aesthetically resistant material and an expanded painting practice that uses gunshots to transform polished stainless steel panels. The resultant marks—appearing simultaneously as scars and embellishments—break the continuity of these pristine minimalist forms. The fourteen powder-coated aluminum bars assembled in Evangeline’s series of wall sculptures Sabachthani were shot through with 5.56mm M4 rifles and 9mm Beretta M9 pistols at Joint Base Balad in Iraq. These were not the randomly fired shots found in war-torn pockets around the globe; instead, they were staged by the artist. A tremendous beauty lies within these painted slabs that have been

eviscerated by an irrevocably violent human action. The beauty isn’t in the rupture but in the testimony these singular objects, now shot through, give to all of us who have experienced the shock of the impossibly fast transitions in our lives. Margaret Evangeline: Sabachthani is curated by Michael Rush, Founding Director, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

This exhibition features Margaret Evangeline’s Sabachthani II, Sabachthani III, and Sabachthani XIII (2012) from the Broad MSU’s permanent collection. This exhibition is organized by the Broad MSU.

SHINIQUE SMITH ARCADIAN CLUSTERS FEBRUARY 7 – JUNE 2014

Shinique Smith takes physical stock of fibreculture and the possibilities of line. Working widely across painting, drawing, collage, video, and installation, Smith creates ecosystems of cooperative corporality. Her works evoke embodied artifacts with consciences of genteel street smarts. Graffiti, secondhand finds, and neo-tribalism interact with Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism, and Japanese calligraphy to create playful alterations between supertext and subtext, evoking the textile weaves of Smith’s oft-used materials themselves. In an exhaustive effort to process and restore culture, Smith creates menageries that glom high and lowbrow expressions and bury them at the human center.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Shinique Smith (b. 1971, Baltimore MD) is an artist living and working in Hudson, New York. The artist has had more than 20 solo exhibitions, most recently at James Cohan Gallery in New York and at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), and at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Shinique Smith: Arcadian Clusters is curated by Aimee Shapiro, Director of Education, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

This exhibition is organized by the Broad MSU as part of the MSU Federal Credit Union Artist Studio Series, a program that invites artists to interact with the community through site-specific installations and educational encounters that offers insight into artists’ creative processes.

EMEKA OGBOH ÁLÁ APRIL 3 – APRIL 6, 2014

An emerging Nigerian sound and video artist, Emeka Ogboh (b. 1977) is known for his ongoing Lagos Soundscapes project—a captivating portrait of the famed mega-city rendered through its aural infrastructure. Utilizing field recordings taken mostly spontaneously during his daily jaunts in his hometown, Ogboh creates immersive works that document and archive the rich tapestry of peoples, cultures, and histories that make up one of the world’s most cosmopolitan locations. Composed of an intoxicating blend of traffic sounds, street music,

commuter chatter, and the calls of hawkers and street sellers, Lagos Soundscapes suggests that Lagos possesses a unique acoustic character that sets it apart from other global metropolises. Emeka Ogboh: Àlà is curated by Yesomi Umolu, Assistant Curator, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

POSTSCRIPT WRITING AFTER CONCEPTUAL ART MARCH 21 – SEPTEMBER 21, 2014

Postscript: Writing After Conceptual Art features the work of over 50 artists and writers exploring the artistic possibilities of language. A major current underlying the exhibition argues that the field of literature known as “conceptual writing” can be seen as engaging in a provocative dialogue with the field of contemporary art, producing new insights into the meaning of both literature and art. Postscript is the first exhibition to examine the work of conceptual writing, investigating the roots of the movement in the art of the 1960s and 70s and presenting contemporary examples of text-based art practices.

WORDPLAY CONCEPTUAL PRACTICES IN PRINT FEBRUARY 28 – SEPTEMBER 21, 2014

Comprising nearly two dozen publications from the collections of the Michigan State University Libraries, this display explores the capacity of language to reflect on the human experience while upending literary and artistic traditions. Together, the publications on view in Wordplay share an interest in drawing inspiration from the past to test the present boundaries of the written word. Their pursuits, in turn, continue to pave the way for new generations of conceptual practitioners. Wordplay: Conceptual Practices in Print is organized by Yesomi Umolu, Assistant Curator, with Jenny Carty, Curatorial Research Assistant, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

This exhibition is presented in response to themes explored in Postscript: Writing After Conceptual Art, on view at the Broad MSU from March 21 to September 21, 2014.

IMRAN QURESHI THE GOD OF SMALL THINGS MAY 9 – AUGUST 24, 2014

For his project at the Broad MSU, Imran Qureshi created an indoor installation—his first in an American art museum. Forms and images appropriated from his earlier work are printed on thousands of sheets of paper that are then crumpled and gathered to form a site-specific mountain that fills the space of a thirty-foot-high gallery. As viewers walk around the immense structure they discover that this mountain has been sliced along a sharp angle following the gallery’s wall to create an intimate, tunnel-like space. This duality between grand and intimate scale is present throughout the exhibition, emphasized by Qureshi’s pairing of a commissioned miniature painting with the massive installation. The installation also includes a series of red and gold paintings presented in tandem with never-before-seen video works that give viewers insight into the slow, careful, and meditative process

of making that the artist employs. ABOUT THE ARTIST

Born in Hyderabad, Pakistan, in 1972, Qureshi rose to international prominence in 2011 with a major installation at the Sharjah Biennial in which he translated this traditional mode of making into a large, architecturally scaled and site-specific installation. Qureshi was named Deutsche Bank’s 2013 “Artist of the Year.” Imran Qureshi: The God of Small Things is curated by Alison Gass, Curator of Contemporary Art, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

This exhibition features Imran Qureshi’s And how many rains must fall before the stains are washed clean…(2014), and Here and There (2014) from the Broad MSU’s permanent collection.

MITHU SEN BORDER UNSEEN APRIL 25 – AUGUST 31, 2014

A prominent voice in contemporary art from India, Mithu Sen upends common approaches to gender and sexuality by exploring the broad connotations of physical attributes like hair, the backbone, and teeth. Extremely visceral, her work is also disquietingly pretty, often using striking pinks and reds. For her first US solo museum presentation, Sen uses false teeth and dental polymer to create a large-scale gumlike sculpture that opposes the geometric lines of the gallery space. Playing with the histories of minimalism and materiality in 20th century art, Sen’s sculptural intervention is primed to provoke curiosity and deep contemplation.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Mithu Sen (b. 1971, West Bengal, India), is a New Delhi-based artist who stands as a crucial feminist voice in contemporary Indian art. An alumnus of Kala Bhavan, Shantiniketan, she has had three solo exhibitions at Lakeeren Art Gallery, Mumbai (2003), Machintosh Gallery, Glasgow (2001) and Art India Style, New Delhi (2000). Mithu Sen: Border Unseen is curated by Karin Zitzewitz, Assistant Professor at Michigan State University.

RALLI QUILTS APRIL 25 – AUGUST 41, 2014

Featuring examples from the MSU Museum’s renowned quilt collection, Ralli Quilts examines the connection between the visual tradition of quilt making and the quilters themselves. In certain locales and cultures, artists have used the characteristic component techniques of quilt making to produce textiles that are strongly associated with their communities. Exuding cultural pride and signifying communal identity, quilts tell histories through their patterning and methods of production. In southern Pakistan and western India, quilts known as ralli (after the local word ralanna, meaning to mix or connect) are made for functional and ritual purposes. They are constructed using patchwork, appliqué, and embroidery techniques, and have colorful designs that

reflect motifs found in ancient pottery of the region. They are visual feasts of color and pattern that reveal traces of their makers. The selection of ralli quilts presented in this exhibition includes a number that were acquired from Dr. Patricia Ormsby Stoddard, an MSU alum and the author of Ralli Quilts: Traditional Textiles from Pakistan and India (2003). Ralli Quilts is curated by Marsha MacDowell, Lynne Swanson and Mary Worrall from the MSU Museum.

THE LAND GRANT FLATBREAD SOCIETY SEPTEMBER 5 – OCTOBER 12, 2014

The best art has always taken up the most significant issues of the artist’s day and reframed vital ideas in ways that fundamentally shift people’s awareness and perceptions of their own world. Echoing some of the major concerns facing a global world today, in recent years artists and architects have increasingly turned to food and land as a means of promoting social and political activism. “Social Practice” is the most common term for this kind of artistic output and demarcates creators whose work extends beyond the traditional boundaries of aesthetic/object-based practice, but rather involves performance, community gathering, and ephemeral materials. Within a significant artistic framework, these projects educate participants and even instigate

grass-roots remedies to major global crises—an artistic approach to thinking globally and acting locally. PARTICIPATING ARTISTS

THE LAND GRANT FOREST LAW AUGUST 29, 2014 – JANUARY 11, 2015

As part of its newly inaugurated artists’ residency and commissioning program The Land Grant, the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University presents an ambitious new research project by Swiss artist Ursula Biemann (b. 1955). For her first major commission in the United States, Biemann has conceived a mixed-media installation that draws from research she carried out with architect and urbanist Paulo Tavares in the oil and mining frontier along the rainforest of southern Ecuador. This area near the Peruvian border is considered the sovereign land of indigenous nations, and is currently under threat of exploitation from various national and international

actors who seek to gain access to its untapped resources. Through the display of a synchronized double video tableaux, maps, and an array of materials and samples collected in this embattled territory, Biemann unravels the complex assemblage of land rights, ecological and mineral wealth, and private and public interests that animate the physical, mythical, and legal dimensions of the tropical forest. The Land Grant: Forest Law is curated by Yesomi Umolu, Assistant Curator, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University.

committed to giving a voice and presence to the legacy of the African diaspora in Europe.

FUTURE RETURNS CONTEMPORARY ART FROM CHINA OCTOBER 30, 2014 – MARCH 8, 2015

Over the past three decades China has experienced profound socioeconomic changes that have prompted calls to revisit, reconsider, and redefine the nation’s identity. Although there remains a strong local understanding of Chinese history and heritage, the homogenization of the country’s urban geography and the rapid dissipation of rural life have dramatically altered the cultural landscape. Future Returns: Contemporary Art from China explores the impact of these transformations by bringing together works by contemporary Chinese artists that address China’s metamorphosis from a traditional society into an ultra-modern nation.

Participants selected the themes—as well as programs and sites—for their projects with the most potential impact as a means of speculating on the long-term future. Visiting the area and beginning their work in sequence, each designer responds not only to East Lansing as it appears today, but also to the real world projects underway and the designs being developed by preceding participants. The designs collectively envision what could occur incrementally over the course of

the next few decades. Out of this process emerges both a speculative vision of a future East Lansing and the connections between that and the daily decisions negotiated by a community. PARTICIPANTS

DAY AFTER DEBT A CALL FOR STUDENT LOAN RELIEF NOVEMBER 23, 2014 – APRIL 12, 2015

Realized in response to the debt culture that has grown around the demand for higher education in the United States, and the pressures that it places upon graduates, Kurdish artist Ahmet Öğüt has enlisted leading contemporary artists to produce imaginative responses to this crisis. Presented by the Broad MSU and the Istanbul-based art organization Protocinema, Day After Debt is a series of sculptures designed and produced by Öğüt, Natascha Sadr Haghighian, Dan Perjovschi, Martha Rosler, Superflex, and Krzysztof Wodiczko that function as collection points for public contributions to student loan relief. Located in interstitial spaces throughout the museum, the donations collected from these sculptures will fund The Debt Collective, a debt cancelling initiative launched by Strike Debt’s Rolling Jubilee. Aside from

cancelling debt, this collective creates a platform for debtors that aims to offer more possibilities for organization, advocacy, and resistance to those struggling with student loan debt. All works in exhibition commissioned by Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University and Protocinema, courtesy the artists and Lombard Freid Gallery, New York; Mitchell-Innes & Nash, New York; Galerie Lelong, New York; Johann König Gallery, Berlin. Day After Debt: A Call for Student Loan Relief is curated by Mari Spirito, Founding Director of Protocinema.

This exhibition is organized by the Broad MSU. Support is provided by SAHA, Istanbul, Haro Cumbusyan, Bilge Öğüt, Marty and Rebecca Eisenberg, and the Broad MSU’s general exhibitions fund. Special thanks Pelin Tan, Koray Duman, and Laura Hanna and Christopher Casuccio from Strike Debt.

BROAD MSU COLLECTION & ACQUISITIONS

PERMANENT COLLECTION 2012 – 2014

In the last two years, the Broad MSU has acquired 383 works to add to its permanent collection. Prior to the formation of the Broad MSU in 2012, the museum had less than 40 works from the 21st century. Through endowment purchases and gifts, the museum has increased significantly its holdings of the art of our time. In support of the museum’s exhibition program, many works have been acquired directly from the artists whose work has been on display in the Broad MSU. Older works were also added to the collection as gifts, especially in the area of photographs, enhancing the collection in its depth and breadth, so that we can make manifest our commitment to sharing our collection with diverse audiences—from our visitors, the faculty, staff and students of the university along with the public at large.

The collection is used frequently by the faculty of MSU for teaching purposes: from having the students learn how to do a visual analysis of a work of art, to planning an exhibition, to viewing conservation x-rays of an Old Master Painting before and after conservation. Information on objects in the collection has been requested often in the last two years for scholastic research by scholars, resulting in published works that enhance the knowledge of our holdings. Works from the collection have been lent to local and domestic venues along with international loans to Winnipeg, Canada, and Lyon, France.

ACQUISITIONS IMRAN QURESHI Born in Hyderabad, Pakistan, Imran Qureshi is considered one of the leading figures in developing a contemporary aesthetic that integrates twenty-first-century themes with the motifs and techniques of miniature painting, a practice that flourished in the Mughal courts of the Indian subcontinent in the late sixteenth century. Qureshi learned the extraordinarily careful methods of traditional miniature painting through extensive training at the National College of Arts in Lahore. From the outset he began playing with history by updating his small miniatures to reflect a contemporary moment. While still alluding to this tradition of book illustration, Qureshi expanded his practice into painting abstract forms such as shapes, plants, scissors and missiles. Inspired by weekend trips to flea markets and prevailing violence in the Middle East, Qureshi’s work became increasingly

emotive and unstructured relishing in the freedom that contemporary painting allows. Following a terrorist bombing at his local market in Lahore, Qureshi began using a deep blood-red paint in his site-specific installations. Splashing interior courtyards, walls, and rooftops, the artist layered foliate motifs emerging from the abstract spatters—a symbol of hope emerging from tragedy. These installations are haunting reminders of the prevalence of violence within both Pakistani history and our own society. Here and There is representative of the artist’s abstract and gestural painting style but is still infused with traditional techniques and motifs. From afar, the blood-red paint resembles the aftermath of a horrific crime, but upon closer inspection intricately painted foliate forms become legible, emerging as signs of life.

ACQUISITIONS E.V. DAY New York-based installation artist E.V. Day uses sculpture as a means to explore themes of sexuality and humor. Through the manipulation of iconic imagery from popular culture, Day transforms gender stereotypes and playfully illuminates contradictions of societal roles. Her work typically involves the suspension of found objects, such as in Divas Ascending, a 14-sculpture installation at Lincoln Center created from costumes retired from the archives of the New York City Opera, and Bride Fight, two dueling bridal gowns suspended in the air, exhibited at the Lever House as part of their collection in 2006.

This work is similar to her recent installation titled Semi-Feral which is comprised of two suspended skeletons of saber-toothed tigers. Envisioning an aerial cat fight, Semi-Feral remarks on the strange voyeurism connected with witnessing women fight, playing out the scenario through these historically ferocious cats. The artist was also inspired by fossil discoveries in the La Brea tar pits in Los Angeles, and envisions these objects as primitive relics that infiltrate our contemporary environment. Salivator carries with it these primal sensibilities, yet emerges livelier than the collection of hanging bones, as it bares its fangs and a fleshy-pink tongue.

Salivator is a five foot high animal-like sculpture that appears to be rising out of or melting into a puddle. Bearing resemblance to dog-like drool, this sculpture simultaneously attracts as it repels its viewers.

ACQUISITIONS SAM JURY Working across painting, photography, video, and installation, British artist Sam Jury creates beautiful yet haunting images of everyday life. Her work explores the ways in which the notion of ‘reality’ has been affected by the proliferation of mass media, virtual environments, and technology in contemporary society.

fascination with the effect of the camera lens as the photorealist. In the same manner that her predecessors took advantage of the medium to create paintings that inherit the surface texture and composition of the photograph, Jury exploits the expanded functions of digital camera and film.

Working primarily through staged scenes or documented performances, Jury uses digital manipulations of still and moving images to create fantastical snapshots of fleeting landscapes and portraits. Using a combination of techniques, Jury lends an ethereal and timeless quality to her subjects, resulting in ambiguous articulations of time and place. Jury’s practice is indebted to the tradition of realism, more specifically to the recent history of photorealism that was the bedrock of Americana in the 1960s and 1970s. Jury shares the same

Nothing is Lost interrogates the history of portrait painting. Instead of working with a with a single sitter over the course of a number of sittings as is customary, Jury’s portraits are the result of superimposing numerous images, some culled from the internet and others from staged scenarios, onto each other. This final composite image appears at once specific and uncanny, making it difficult to discern the identity of the subject through qualifiers of gender, age or race.

The Broad MSU Education Team offers art activities for children of all ages at community festivals including: East Lansing Arts Festival, Summer Solstice Jazz Festival, Lansing Pride, Old Town Jazz Festival, and Old Town Blues Festival.

In this monthly series, someone from the Broad MSU selects a work from our collection and shares what they think is special about it.

GESSO The GESSO program is based on the premise that art and visual literacy act as a strong foundation for academic learning. GESSO helps 2nd and 3rd grade students build deeper connections across subjects through arts integration and hands-on projects, while meeting state and national educational core standards.
