Contemporary artist Dawoud Bey presents work created during a five-week residency at Chadsey High School in Detroit. Bey, who is acclaimed for his work on similar projects at cultural institutions across the country, will include large-format, color photographic portraits and a video of Chadsey High students. Student texts will accompany each portrait. In addition to creating his own art, Bey will collaborate with art faculty at Chadsey and conduct discussion, writing and art workshops with many of the students. A selection of student artwork from these sessions will be on view as well.
