My Love for Me
Show Opening: Thursday, October 5th | 6–9 PM
Our present human experience is such that we are both more connected and more disjointed than at any other point in our collective past. While we have access to more people than ever, the response of many is to retreat inwardly to sacred spaces that offer the sheltered comfort of isolation. In that sense, individualism as an idea has become a sanctuary from an overbearing, socially networked world.
"My Love for Me" is an exhibition of 8 2D artists from around the globe whose work teases out the ironic nature of living in this current historical moment.
Whitney Colley | Michelle D'Cruz | Kelsey Elder | Anton Jeludkov
Jimin Kim | Jessica Lee | Satoru Nihei | Harry Sanchez Jr.
Past Show: Untethered
Untethered features Detroit contemporary artist and metalsmith, Tiff Massey. Influenced by Detroit's history of ostentatious fashion, Tiff Massey’s work examines how symbols of wealth in the regalia of the African diaspora affect the wearer’s behavior and attitude. Massey looks to elicit an experience whereupon the viewer may encounter an object and engage in thoughts and/or acts of vanity.
