In  The Bloodstained Shirt  (2018), Chinese artist Wang Qingsong restages in Highland Park, Michigan, an iconic 1959 drawing by Wang Shikuo of peasants rising up against a cruel landlord and triumphantly reclaiming their right to the land. Qingsong's large-scale photograph collapses two moments in history to present a vivid reminder of the human consequences of the ruthless pursuit of profit and the power of collective action. The exhibition includes works created in collaboration with area residents that give voice to their concerns and their hopes for transformation and renewal.

The story of Japanese archaeologist Ryoichi and evidence of his excavations are explored by Patrick Nagatani in this series of photographs, compelling viewers to reflect on how photographs and institutions shape our knowledge of the past and present.
