Inner State Gallery and Heron Arts are proud to announce The Detroiter a unique collaborative group show opening July 30th, 2016 in San Francisco. Featuring a vast selection of artists with ties to Detroit, the exhibition includes artists currently living and working in Detroit, expatriate Detroit artists from around the globe, as well as select artists from the Bay Area who take inspiration from Detroit’s unique visual landscape. On top of over 50 visual artists, the exhibition will include a showcase from Ghostly International curated by Detroit’s trendsetting Movement Electronic Music Festival, bringing the Detroit sound to San Francisco with live performances from Matthew Dear, Shigeto and Lusine.
Located in the heart of Detroit’s historic Eastern Market, the creative team at Inner State Gallery has produced nearly 100 exhibitions across the world, including Detroit, Mexico City, Miami and Vienna. With a deep understanding, respect and knowledge of the past three decades of the creative spirit of Detroit, Inner State has curated a wide spectrum of art, spanning countless disciplines and genres in The Detroiter.
“Having an opportunity to bring this group of artists from Detroit to San Francisco is really exciting, as we’ve been championing their work for years,” Dan Armand, Co-Founder of Inner State Gallery said. “Sharing their work with a new audience will give the world a look into what’s going on right now in Detroit’s art community.”
San Francisco’s Heron Arts showcases immersive visual and audio driven exhibitions. Teaming up with curators and galleries is at the core of its mission, and The Detroiter will be no exception as the unique partnership will feature one of the hottest contemporary art cities in the world. Once declared as left for dead by outsiders, Detroit has emerged from the ashes with a vibrant art community that is busting at the seams.
