Intersections Dialogue

Work : Detroit 
An ongoing series of dialogues among makers of creative work

Join us Wednesday, October 17, 2007 from 6:30 pm to 8 pm for a conversation with the participants in the current exhibition “Intersection” featuring:
Jim Cogswell, Jack Johnson, Stephanie Rowden, Stephen Schudlich, Gary Schwartz, Nick Tobier

The series “Intersections” brings together makers of creative works from Detroit, Ann Arbor, and beyond in a dialogue with each other and the audience about their process, practice, and purpose. On this fertile crossroads between regions and disciplines, multiple viewpoints converge, ideas collide, and new perspectives bloom.

This evening’s Intersection event includes those artists whose work directly addresses the intersection of Mack/Martin Luther King and Woodward -- Work : Detroit’s location. Jim Cogswell’s work turns the windows of the building into a colorful mural, while Gary Schwartz presents the animated adventures of Judge Woodward, the architect behind Detroit’s street plan. Jack Johnson and Stephen Schudlich both worked with trash collected found on the scene, with the former turning it into a three-dimensional composition and the latter into a systematic color chart for the urban environment. Sound artist Stephanie Rowden documents oral histories of the neighborhood and Nick Tobier engaged Detroiters waiting for the bus.

Join us at Work @ Detroit for this unique opportunity to participate in a dialogue with makers of creative work and contribute to the new discoveries that emerge along the way.
