Lab For An Urban Future: Detroit, co-curated by Chloë Bass + Mitch McEwen, at the Queens Museum of Art this fall.
Thanks to your generous contributions, DETROIT: A BROOKLYN CASE STUDY had a great run at Marygrove College. We were so glad to be able to bring the exhibit to Detroit proper, and we got a lot of great responses that will help shape our future research and initiatives there.
In an exciting update, this fall SUPERFRONT will present the Lab for Urban Futures: Detroit at the Queens Museum of Art. The Lab consists of a series of live events and rapid publications that invite guests from a range of disciplines to consider Detroit as a provocation for new investigations and experiments in urbanism. Co-produced by Chloë Bass and Mitch McEwen, the curators of SUPERFRONT's traveling exhibit DETROIT: A BROOKLYN CASE STUDY, the series focuses on the future of city development for a post-industrial age. From transformations in land use and waterfront activity to abandoned buildings and shifting residential populations, the post-industrial stage of capitalism has major long-term implications for American cities. Working with urban sociologists, independent media producers, food enthusiasts, agriculture activists, urban designers, architects and other urban strategists, the Lab invites the public to engage these locally-relevant issues through the lens of Detroit.
