Kylie Lockwood: Becoming a Sculpture
Simone DeSousa Gallery is pleased to present "Becoming a Sculpture," Kylie Lockwood's first solo exhibition with the gallery. Kylie Lockwood is an interdisciplinary artist whose work reconciles the experience of living in a female body with the history of sculpture. For Lockwood, the making of an artwork is a performance, a way of testing the limitations of her body. Her relationship to material is intimate and untethered to perfecting its capability. In this exhibition, Lockwood engages art historical themes rooted in classical Greek and Roman works of antiquity, as she re-examines poses through the exploration of her body as sculpture.

Opening Reception, Saturday, November 9th, 6-8PM  [Midtown, Detroit] 
444 W Willis, Units 111 And 112.

On view through December 21st.
Reyes Finn

Nikita Gale & Phillip Birch
Reyes | Finn is pleased to announce two new solo exhibitions by artists Nikita Gale and Phillip Birch. Employing various technologies-from the engineering of new sites for political action, to the implementation of a holographic being as fictional gamemaster - both exhibitions bring to the fore issues of technological colonization, political dissent, the descent of humanity and the creation of new systems in the wake of collapse. A new site-specific installation by Nikita Gale will occupy the main gallery space. The side gallery will feature Phillip Birch: Subspace Envoy, a new media installation in which an artificially intelligent holographic gamemaster interrogates the viewer, attempting to trick them into playing a game.

Opening Reception, Friday, November 8th,  6-8PM  [Corktown, Detroit]

David Klein Gallery | Detroit

Robert Schefman: Secrets
In his first solo exhibition with David Klein Gallery Robert Schefman presents his recent series of paintings and drawings exploring the hidden world of secrets. Using social media as a device to reach a large audience Schefman posted a request on social media asking followers to send him one personal secret that he could use as a subject or an element in his paintings. The response was immediate and revealing. More than one hundred anonymous secrets were sent through the internet or by mail to the artist's private post office box. Many of the pieces in the Secrets exhibition refer directly to the actual secrets touchingly revealed in the anonymous letters or messages received by the artist.

Blossoming Artists

Leah Carroll's, Drawn Detroit
Leah Carroll's 'drawn Detroit' exhibit opening, Drawn to Detroit artwork takes a closer look at the city of Detroit, specifically it's rich assortment of Architecture. Some abandoned, others revitalized, but all sacred. As a resident of Detroit, I have only scratched the surface of the ever- changing city with this series of work. The pencil to pen drawings, focus on the intricacies of each structure. They pay homage to the architectural beauties in the heart of the city. The renaissance of Detroit is captivating and endearing. Once abandoned, but now the prized possession of many, Detroit is my opus and my inspiration.
