Join us for the launch party for Essay'd 2: 30 Detroit Artists, which follows the welcome reception of last year’s Essay’d in presenting short, illustrated essays about artists who live and work in Detroit, or who have participated in the Detroit art scene in an important way. Stemming from the popular website of the same name, the first volume of Essay’d sought to introduce readers, even those who are well-versed in the Detroit art ecosystem, to new insight and a fresh perspective on the city’s contemporary art practitioners. The four arts writers behind Essay’d—a professor, a gallerist, and two critics—are joined in Essay’d 2 by a handful of guest writers, whose unique views offer different points of access to Detroit’s diverse and populous artist community.
This event is free and open to the public.
Books will be available for purchase and signing.
