Grand River @ MSU Union Art Gallery | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Our next exhibition at the MSU Union Art Gallery, Grand River, a solo exhibition featuring the work of Jeffery Evergreen. Evergreen recieved his MFA in Print Media from Cranbrook in 2014 and  BFA from Michigan State University in 2004 with a concentration in Painting & Sculpture.

The circulation, remediation, and recombination of images is the current focus of Evergreen’s arts practice. He uses a combination of digital and print processes to deconstruct contemporary images and draw attention to the materials and processes used and invite viewers to reconsider their personal relationship with images, technology, and mass media. But rather than offering some ideologically over-simplified answer, he prefers that larger questions about meaning and cultural value persist, coming to the fore to initiate conversations in which a more broad and balanced understanding may be achieved.

Trevor Noah

Presented by MSU College of Arts & Letters Signature Lecture Series

Trevor Noah is the host of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning The Daily Show on Comedy Central and has been part of the show since 2014 when he was a contributor.

Noah’s comedy specials have sold more DVDs than any other standup on the African continent, and his last one-hour special: Lost in Translation was released on Comedy Central.

In November 2016, Trevor released his first book Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood, which was an instant New York Times bestseller. It is a collection of personal stories about growing up in South Africa during the last gasps of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that came with its demise. The book was nominated for two NAACP Image Awards, one for Outstanding Literary Work by a Debut Author and another for Outstanding Literary Work in the Biography/Auto-Biography category.
