Michele Oka Doner Presents “Fluent in the Language of Dreams”


Fluent in the Language of Dreams, an exhibition of work by Stamps alumna Michele Oka Doner (BSDes 1966), will be on view at Wasserman Projects in Detroit from February 16 — May 5, 2018. Oka Doner first presented this collection almost 40 years ago at the Detroit Institute of Arts. This year, she will be recreating Pages I and II of the original exhibition and adding Pages III and IV. This revamped version of her first solo museum show from 1978 will be accompanied by some of Oka Doner’s sculptures, paper works, books, and design objects. 

Oka Doner is inspired by nature, organic forms, and the evolution of language, and she is strongly influenced by her time spent studying at the University of Michigan and living in Detroit. She also enjoys working in large-scale public works, sculpture, photography, drawing, furniture and functional objects, jewelry, video, artist books, and costume and set design.
