Mobile Homestead by Mike Kelley, Detroit

Mobile Homestead is the new installation by the american artist Mike Kelley, a moving sculpture which leaves from its new home in Midtown Detroit to its native home in the suburbs. Through this nostalgic road trip — which will also be the focus of a video documentary — he reconnects with the industrial roots of Detroit and highlights the forgotten suburbs in the heart of the city. This project is supported by Artangel, LUMA Foundation and the MOCAD. It will be on view from Saturday 25 September 2010 and will be fully completed in 2011 to function as a community space.
