In its most base function, a window allows viewers to see in and out of a space. However, in the context of many of the buildings in Detroit, these windows are bricked or boarded up for the sake of security. Entry is blocked. Here at the UM Detroit space, it serves as art and in turn, becomes an entry point for understanding. Through form and aesthetic, No Entry seeks to add to the continuing dialogue of Detroit’s social and urban landscape.
