EXCHANGE: Chicago and Detroit

Detroit and Chicago artists meeting and presenting their work to each other at Chicago Artists’ Coalition


Chicago Artists’ Coalition (CAC), in partnership with Power House Productions in Detroit, is pleased to present EXCHANGE, two group exhibitions that culminated from a Midwest Artist Exchange initiative in the two cities.

In March 2012, artists from CAC’s BOLT Residency program traveled to Detroit to visit artist studios, artist-run spaces and galleries with a select group of Detroit artists. Sites visited included Power House Productions, Signal Return letterpress shop, CAVE, The Alley Project, artist Scott Hocking’s studio, Popps Packing, Public Pool, and 2739 Edwin, in addition to Detroit’s abandoned train station.  The Chicago-based artists reciprocated in May 2012, when the Detroit artists visited Chicago art venues including 6018 North, Theaster Gates’ Dorchester Projects, Smart Museum of Art, Mess Hall, threewalls, Southside Hub of Production (Shop) and the Hyde Park Art Center.  EXCHANGE is the result of this initiative, offering an opportunity for extended social engagement by exposing audiences to the artistic practices of these Midwestern cities and fostering new dialogues on cultural production.

EXCHANGE is made possible with support from: Art Founders Inc.CAVEChicago Artists’ CoalitionGrigg Graphic ServicesPower House ProductionsPublic PoolQuicken Loans, and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts
