Preview subvertingmod coverfinal

From March 11-April 28 the University Gallery will hold Subverting Modernism: Cass Corridor Revisited 1966-1980. With a 1960s revolutionary spirit, the Cass Corridor artists, who worked in a run down area near Wayne State University, overthrew Modernism and ushered in Post-Modernism, exploring such themes as industrial and post-industrial Detroit, existential vulnerability, the human need for shelter, the persistence of the life force, and the presence or absence of order in nature. The catalogue for the show is being distributed by Wayne State University Press.

Julie Myers, Professor of Art History at EMU curated the exhibition and authored the catalog. Click here to view additional information on the exhibition catalog.
