Things Feel Heavy and The Carr Center Present:
YOU ARE HERE Opening Art Reception!
November 3rd, 7pm-11pm
$10 Admission Fee, Free for students
Live performances from Bevlove and Duane the Jet Black Eel!
Refreshments will be served.
50+ local artists explore what it means to be here and now in Detroit.
This show will draw on the idea that ‘You are Here’ can be both an indicator of place and time (i.e. you are here, existing at this moment, during a time of new urban development and revitalization, spear-headed by creative, whole-hemisphere thinkers and makers), and also “you are here” as in a place on a map, indicating location, as a form of identity for many artists. Work in this show will explore location, time/place, Detroit’s future, urban development, ideas of identity (and what it can mean in the context of Detroit), gentrification, creative and empathetic ingenuity, and whole-brain thinking/making.
