Artist Robert Sestok shares archival photographs and stranger than fiction tales from his personal history in this narrated slide show which ruminates on Detroit’s past to illuminate the future. With live ambient musical accompaniment by John Duffy.

Born in Detroit, Sestok has been creating work since 1967. He has exhibited at the Detroit Institute of Arts, Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago), Cranbrook Museum of Art, and Marianne Boesky Gallery (New York City), among others. In 2015, he opened City Sculpture Park, a public art space in Detroit exhibiting three decades of work. His work is held in numerous collections, including the Detroit Institute of Arts, Cranbrook Museum of Art, and Wayne State University.

This program is made possible through support from AXD, a city-wide, multi-disciplinary series led by Creative Many and powered by the Kresge Foundation.
