Meditations on Movement
Detroit' Museum of New Art
Through August 13, 2005
This is the second exhibition exploring regional artists and their artwork at the Museum of New Art in Detroit (MONA) . Detroit Now, the first such exhibition was conceived in February of 2002. The idea was to create a museum that would work in a concerted effort with the galleries of the region: in order to create, in theory, an exhibition without walls. The idea was also to create a sort of biennial out of it all, since the list of such young talent is always refreshing itself. That show was an enormous success in 2003.
Now, the Museum of New Art is continuing the success of that first endeavor with its second installment of Detroit Now. The common denominator this time around is various notions of movement, real and imagined, implied and imposed, active and inactive, and, as an exhibit to create a meditation on all motion.
The MONA exhibition of 12 regional artists features works in all media: painting, works on paper, sculpture, installation, film/video, performance, photography, textiles, web-based and interactive art.
Artists: Lisa Dillin, Chris Erchick, Anthony Frazzini, Marie Gardeski, Aaron Hillman, Matt Monroe, Cynthia Randolph, Matt Schlian, Jeffrey Schweitzer, Andrew Simsak, Amanda Thatcher, and Andrew Thompson.
