A 168 hour show of installation, 2-D and 3-D.
Art and music stay up all night with detroit contemporary's final show of the season
Participating artists were invited to dig through the bowels of detroit contemporary to create works of art simply from the materials and resources they found, thus this show is titled (and includes) "...the kitchen sink."! detroit contemporary hosts this 168 hour show of installation, 2-D and 3-D art opening on May 25th and running straight through to June 1st. And I do mean "straight through".
detroit contemporary will be open for 24hrs for the entire week with music/performance every night as well as daytime events in the sculpture garden. In addition, Saturday, June 1st, Clark Warner will grace us with a 4-hour atmospheric set from 4pm until 8pm. A live set by John Ryan will be from 8pm to 9pm with Ron Zakrin as Goudron closing the week-long celebration at 9pm.
Installation and Time-Based
Robert Anderson takes hold of d.c's technology to create an ongoing, narrative formed by events throughout the week. Coco Bruner displays a video documentary of d.c and its past as well as creating a table-setting for us to reflect upon the direction of our future. Anne Harrington-Hughes and Steve Hughes surprise us with their literal interpretation of "...the kitchen sink". Kai Kim creates an environment that draws upon Korean Shamanism in a contemporary form and Ron Zakrin asks us to take a good look at ourselves in the unisex bathroom.
2-D and 3-D Works
