NWT Summer Residency

Artist Michael Bizon and Christian Tedeschi arrived to Detroit from LA in early June for their month long expedition of the Northwest Territories( 2 satellite spaces across the street from Popps).  It's hard to put into words the work they accomplished, but lets just say they "kicked Ass!" Cleaning,reorganizing, pealing away sufaces.... ultimately transforming the crazy cluttered storefront and attached house into  a thoughtful intricate web of interventions and installations.
 It was a pleasure having them here.

Michael and Christian cast a concrete fence using materials found in the storefront spaces, a sort of time capsule.
