Admission: $5 suggested donation (Free for MOCAD Members)
The work of exhibiting artist Helina Metaferia builds a conversation about space, language, and belonging by asserting the black body into sites of systemic oppression—from institutions and gentrified communities to land marked by historic trauma. On the occasion of Unboxing: Doublespeak, Metaferia will debut a new performance developed for, and responding to, the context of MOCAD. Metaferia was a recent artist-in-residence for Creative Practice in Critical Race Studies at Michigan State University. Presented in partnership with Detroit Art Week.
