arms ache avid aeon: Chapter Two
Chapter Two: Nov. 28, 2018 – Jan. 6, 2019
arms ache avid aeon: Chapter One
Oct 2 – Nov 16, 2018
Launch: Sunday Nov. 4, 2018 as part of Downtown Art Sunday.
Now: Housed at CCAD Packard Library after Nov. 4, 2018
In the 1970s, American artist Elaine Sturtevant (1924 Lakewood, OH – 2014 Paris, France) began operating an art practice in which she meticulously copied selected works of her male colleagues, as a critique of the culture of the art world in which she was working.
The collaborative research and book acquisition project second shelf (2018-20), initiated by Brussels-based, German artist Heide Hinrichs, explores those influence of that culture on the library of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, Belgium, and asks how alternative canons can be generated in the library. The core of the project is the formation of a new collection of books in the library of the Royal Academy that document the work of artists – women, of gender spectrum, queer, and of color – and related theoretical texts.
Part of this process of raising awareness is thinking about the creative networks that libraries make evident (and sometimes conceal), and about the economy of art and of publishing. This is being explored through institutional relationships and through the second shelf ‘mirror site’ at the Beeler Gallery and CCAD Packard Library.
Open Rehearsal #1: Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2018 | 6:30 p.m.
Open Rehearsal #2: Thursday, March 28, 2019 | 6:30 p.m.

This is Season Zero.
How well do you behave? IN THE FLAT FIELD. brings together printed matter and promotional materials — first encounters — of and into various fields. From art school gallery exhibition posters to radical literature, from fashion runway invitations to a philosopher’s notes. With an ethos of slow programming, these materials gathered together will be installed accumulatively throughout the season. Things will come and go and stay for different durations.
How can aesthetic, political, and intellectual urgency be conveyed and designed in the present moment? We look at —and look back at — these materials not as artifacts but as media-screens of first encounters in that very first flat field. How well do we behave towards materials? How well do materials behave back? What resonances and resistance are there for the here and now? And finally, what responsibilities does a gallery situated in an art and design school, such as Beeler Gallery, have in the present moment?

She later published the book “Lesbian Nation: The Feminist Solution” in 1973.

Black & Red Books + Detroit Printing Co-op
On view in the galleries, Feb. 24 – March 25, 2018
Black & Red Books and the Detroit Printing Co-Op was founded by Fredy Perlman and Lorraine Perlman. Black & Red Books published the first unauthorized English edition of Guy Debord’s iconic 1967 book The Society of the Spectacle in 1970. Detroit Printing Co-Op (1969-1980) printed pamphlets, fliers, posters and books in Southwest Detroit, including the influential leftist journal Radical America from 1970-1972 and The Political Thought of James Forman, published by members of the League of Revolutionary Black Workers. Not trained as a designer, Fredy Perlman’s designs arose out of a sense of political urgency and necessity, with its experimentation in overprinting, collage techniques and paper stock.
Curated by graphic designer Danielle Aubert, Associate Professor of Graphic Design at Wayne State University, Detroit. Based on a previous exhibition co-orgnaized with Maia Asshaq at 9338 Campau, Hamtramck in 2016.
