Enduring Detroit Photo Exhibition
The inaugural outing of Enduring Detroit explored the cultural landscape of Detroit through the lens of Black Photographers with honesty and respect for Black Detroiters.
The Enduring Detroit exhibition is a collaboration between curator, Kim Theus, and the featured photographers, Dionne Marie, Elonte Davis, Jermaine Moore, and Vince Glass. Collectively their work is a candid glimpse into Detroit.
Enduring Detroit displayed large-scale color and black-and-white photographs that center Black Detroit residents and promotes Black visibility in the representation of Detroit. The photos selected underscore the vibrancy, beauty, and energy of life in Detroit while capturing moments in time that provide a window into spaces and communities that contribute to the lived experience of many Black Detroiters.
The exhibition was shown at Irwin House Gallery, a cultural hub that not only provides a platform for emerging artist but empowers artists producing works from performance art to visual arts.
The exhibition was sponsored by Canfield Consortium with additional support from Self, Love Supreme and Irwin House Gallery.
We look forward to announcing a location and dates for Enduring Detroit II, in the meantime
