Kerry Downey: Nothing but net Opening Reception
Kerry Downey's first solo show, titled "Nothing but net," is a multidisciplinary project that explores their relationship between self and other and their movement between interior and exterior landscapes. Consisting of a large video projection and series of monotypes, this process-driven and experimental work contains many other mediums: painting, drawing, collage, performance, and text. This is a project that questions the boundaries of containment, what are the possibilities and limitations of a medium, of the body, and of visual and verbal languages.

Opening Reception, Saturday May 20th,
6-9pm. [North End, Detroit]
