For At Large, Reyes Projects will reveal new work from twelve Detroit-based artists that have never before shown with the gallery. In turn, these artists have personally selected one artist outside of Detroit to put a work in the second iteration of the exhibition.
The show seeks to showcase a dialogue between artists working locally and beyond. The artist-only curation of the second show—which collapses the porous nature of “art curator” and “art creator” — will seek to close the dialogue between making art and displaying it. Those that visit the gallery twice will have the opportunity to contrast a curator-curated show and an artist-curated show—and hopefully prove that in all cases, the root of the word “curator” is “care.” On display will be a cross-community conversation, between all levels of production.
