Wasserman Projects

City of Queen Anne's Lace
Wasserman Projects is pleased to present the exhibition "City of Queen Anne's Lace". Cuban artists Alejandro Campins and José Yaque capture the energy of Detroit's bustling metropolitan past and the aura of the city's hopeful future. Curated by Rafael DiazCasas, an art historian and independent curator based in New York City, the exhibition explores the parallels between Detroit's rise and fall as a major industrial and cultural hub and the impact of political upheaval during the same period on Cuba's own growth and development.

Simone DeSousa Gallery

Cass Corridor, Connecting Times: Michael Luchs
Simone DeSousa Gallery is pleased to present Cass Corridor: Connecting Times, a series of exhibitions of past Cass Corridor artists curated by Nancy Mitchnick. The project opens on Friday, April 21, with a solo exhibition of works by Michael Luchs, including paintings, works on paper, and models, from 1990 to 2016. From the mid sixties through the late seventies, Cass Corridor was the home of an art community that at the time was regarded as Detroit's avant-garde, a counter-culture art movement shaped by the anxieties of the city-poverty, race, the Viet Nam war, industrial decline-and the optimism of new life styles, protests, music, and art.
