Two exciting events in Detroit tonight:

Author, filmmaker and multi-media artist Eames Demetrios will be presenting his grandparents' films at DWR Birmingham.

Eames Film Festival
Wednesday, October 4 | 6-8pm
Design Within Reach
168 West Maple Road, Birmingham, MI 48009
Phone: 248.593.9640

The legacy of Ray and Charles Eames extends far beyond their classic furniture pieces. Taking a multidisciplinary approach to design long before that was the norm, the Eameses created over 100 short films between 1950 and 1982. Join DWR, in conjunction with the Eames Foundation and Herman Miller for the Home, as we celebrate their film legacy. Our film festival includes a screening of seven films and a presentation from Eames Demetrios, grandson of Charles Eames, director of the Eames Office and author of An Eames Primer. Refreshments will be served.

(According the DWR site attendees were supposed to RSVP by Monday, so you might want to call ahead.)

Then afterwards...

The Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit presents:
MoHa! live (Oslo, Norway)
Thinkbox live (Canada/USA)*
Paris '68 Djs (Detroit)
*Thinkbox will be represented by Christopher Bissonnette and Chris McNamara

Wednesday, October 4th | 9pm | $5
