Photographed in nearby Detroit, Catie Newell’s new images from her series Nightly frame scenes of the urban landscape illuminated at night. The resulting large-scale photographs transform mundane views of city streets into luminous vignettes that reveal surprising views of familiar spaces. Join newly arrived Assistant Curator of Photography, Jennifer Friess, for a guided exploration of Newell’s intriguing photographs and learn how artificial light has been used to shape our experience of urban spaces throughout the last century.

Lead support for the exhibition Catie Newell: Overnight is provided by the Herbert W. and Susan L. Johe Endowment. Additional generous support is provided by the University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning
