(in)Habitation at MOCAD

Matt Kenyon-Spore

The Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) presents (in)Habitation on Friday, June 7, 2013. The exhibition runs through July 28, 2013.

(in)Habitation is a (re)consideration of domesticity featuring the work of Jason J. Ferguson, Matt Kenyon and Osman Khan and is curated by Gregory Tom. Ubiquitous elements of the home  — for instance, a table and chairs, a houseplant, or a simple beam — are altered or subverted by complex ideas about faith, the current mortgage crisis, globalization and even classic American representations of family fun. The sculptural works featured are both serious and playful. They engage through movement, flashing lights and the spectacular, but ultimately lead us to question our existing biases and assumptions about what the idea of “home” really means.

Opening Reception

Friday, June 7 from 7:00pm -10:00pm
Followed by a musical performance by Illy Mack
Illy Mack is a minimalist soul-pop duo (singer-keyboardist-guitarist Jennifer David and bassist-drummer Steve Kendzorski) whose charm is born of raw emotion and the ability to translate it into a song and a stage show.
Admission is $5 (free for MOCAD members)
