Homecoming Weekend 2018: Friday, October 5 - Sunday, October 7

Homecoming Weekend is an annual event during which the University of Michigan honors and thanks the most dedicated supporters of the university and welcomes alumni back to campus.

At each U-M Homecoming Weekend, there are special moments and events to honor those celebrating their “milestone reunions.” In 2018, the milestone reunion classes include: '58, '68, '78, '88, '98, and ’08.

During Homecoming Weekend, the University of Michigan’s nineteen schools and colleges — including the Stamps School of Art & Design — roll out the maize and blue carpet for our alumni.

Join us at 10 am on Friday, October 5 at Stamps Gallery (201 S. Division St.) for a curatorial tour of the gallery and the new exhibition Have We Met? Dialogues on Memory and Desire.

Have We Met? Dialogues on Memory and Desire is an expansive exhibition that takes the history of social movements and collective organizing in Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan as its point of departure. Drawing inspiration from the models of collectivity during the 1960s and 1970s, Have We Met? Dialogues on Memory and Desire examines the contemporary moment and how we can imagine the future. The exhibition brings together a diverse group of artists, cultural producers, and designers whose works have been influenced and informed by movements such as the anti-war and civil rights movements, Black Lives Matter, and #metoo. Through photography, performance, paintings, drawing and text-based work they ask - what can be the role of an art institution in the 21st Century?
