About the Oakland University Art Gallery
For more than 40 years, the Oakland University Art Gallery (OUAG) has delivered diverse, museum-quality art to metro Detroit audiences. From September to May, the OUAG presents six different exhibitions – from cutting-edge contemporary art to projects exploring historical and global themes. The gallery also presents lectures, performances, tours, special events and more.
Sustaining a program focusing on the contextualization of contemporary art in Detroit is at the heart of our mission. Over the last decade we have produced over 50 publications, extending the range of our programming beyond the temporal run of each exhibition; this has created a prominent niche for the gallery. Exhibiting artists have gone on to participate in world-renowned invitationals such as the Whitney and Venice Biennials and have been represented at major art fairs as well as many other prestigious projects.
