The ELJG features four to five exhibitions each year that include works created by emerging and established contemporary artists. Special programming coinciding with the exhibitions includes visiting artists and curators who provide studio visits, gallery talks, lectures, panels, and performances for students, faculty, staff, and the Detroit community at large. A majority of the exhibitions and special programs are coordinated in collaboration with prominent regional, national, and international gallery and museum partners, and include their curators, directors, and registrars for consultancy during the planning and installation stages.
