Unobstructed Views


JULY 27 - AUGUST 10, 2017


Library Street Collective and the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) are pleased to announce UNOBSTRUCTED VIEWS - a group exhibition at the historic W. Hawkins Ferry house. A modernist gem, the house was restored in 2015 with the owner’s original intention in mind—to showcase a vast art collection and views of Lake St. Clair. Unobstructed Views will showcase a curated collection of over 30 groundbreaking contemporary artists. The home setting will also offer the opportunity for conversation about the original Hawkins Ferry House art collection, currently located in museums throughout the country.

Unobstructed Views will also serve as the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit’s fourth annual Interchange Art + Dinner Series summer fundraiser. Detroit’s most avid art collectors and supporters open their homes and spaces for a range of exclusive evenings combining food, drink, and art to create truly unique experiences. This array of unique and diverse events will unite like-minded members of the community to benefit MOCAD and the ever-thriving creativity in the city of Detroit.

Artist list includes: Nina Chanel Abney, Derrick Adams, Brian Bellot, Trudy Benson Katherine Bernhardt, Sanford Biggers, Greg Bogin, Kendell Carter, Jack Craig, Greg Fadell, Beverly Fishman, James Benjamin Franklin, Sayre Gomez, Tyree Guyton, KAWS, Mike Kelley, Paul Kremer, Andrew Kuo, Sadie Laska, Austin Lee, Tony Matelli, Charles McGee, Josh Reames, Scott Reeder, Jason Revok, Carlos Rolon, Holton Rower, Adrianne Rubenstein, Chris Schanck, Willie Wayne Smith, Agathe Snow, Sheida Soleimani, Devin Troy Strother, Spencer Sweeney, and Wallace Whitney.
