Subjects from everyday life, local architecture and portraits are included in this exhibition that presents found photography drawn from the DIA’s and private collections in the U.S. Rediscovered and recovered from flea and antique markets, online resale sites, in attics, yard sales or even found in the trash, found photography speaks to past eras, people and place with a naïve or unintentionally artistic approach.
Honoring Detroit’s history of industry, modernization and the DIA’s vast permanent collection, artists Ruben and Isabel Toledo present a series of new works in Labor of Love. For this groundbreaking exhibition the Toledos mined the DIA’s world-class collection as inspiration for the creation of new sculptures, paintings, drawings, and installations. From Ancient Egypt through to contemporary art, visitors will delight in discovering the original Toledo creations placed near the works that inspired their conception.
The DIA’s expanded Asian Galleries present works of art from the world’s largest continent, featuring recent acquisitions together with longtime DIA treasures coming back onto view. Joining the recently opened gallery for Japanese art are galleries dedicated to Chinese, Korean, and Indian and Southeast Asian art, and Buddhist art across Asia.
