Detroit Revealed: Photographs 2000–2010

Sunday, October 16, 2011 – Sunday, April 29, 2012

Contemporary artists present photographs and video inspired by Detroit, its people, diverse culture, and industries in work created from 2000–2010. The artists shed light on life in the Motor City during the past decade, a time characterized by unique challenges that continue to influence the landscape and society of Detroit in the post-automotive era. From its neighborhoods, factories and vast urban prairies, the exhibition includes more than 50 photographs by selected artists including Michelle Andonian, Carlos Diaz, Scott Hocking, Andrew Moore and Corine Vermeulen. Video work by Dawoud Bey and Ari Marcopoulos are featured.

This exhibition has been organized by the Detroit Institute of Arts. Support has been provided by Quicken Loans and Team Detroit. Additional support has been provided by the City of Detroit. Support for the catalogue has been provided by Furthermore: a program of the J. M. Kaplan Fund.
