This June, the A. Alfred Taubman I Gallery features two exciting exhibitions—Judith Turner: The Flatness of Ambiguity and Flip Your Field: Abstract Prints from the Collection. This unique program will offer visitors the opportunity to experience art through the lens of the artist, in one case, and the curator in the second. Artist Judith Turner and Abstract Prints curator Celeste Brusati invite you to join them for remarks and conversation in the gallery followed by a reception in the UMMA Commons.

UMMA's Flip Your Field project series invites scholars to take a fresh look at our collection by curating a show outside their area of expertise. For the first exhibition in the series, UM Professor of History of Art, Women’s Studies, and Art and Design, Celeste Brusati -- an expert in the visual art and culture of the Netherlands from the fifteenth through the seventeenth centuries -- will curate an exhibition of twentieth-century color abstract prints that will complement and contrast with the exhibition of the Judith Turner photographs in the same space.
