So Now Detroit’s Cool Again, Who Gets To Call Themselves A Detroit Artist?

“I mean if you are a Cranbrook student or AIR, you are not a Detroit artist. If your studio practice is based in Pontiac, you are not a Detroit artist. If you just moved to Detroit, you are not a Detroit artist. Why is this false narrative being pumped? We all have a place of origin why aren’t you repping that? I got one real question though, Where were you when we were shooting in the gym?” – Hyperallergic

Meet Henry Darger, the Most Famous of Outsider Artists, Who Died in Obscurity, Leaving Behind Hundreds of Unseen Fantasy Illustrations and a 15,000-Page Novel

Lurie's satire shows how the critical fetish for outsider artists has a persistent emphasis: a hyperfocus on “misshapen yet perverse ideas” about class, race, education, and...

Pepper Adams Plays Mingus

Berry Gordy hedged his bets in 1962.Though the founder of Motown had his first #1 pop and R&B hit with the Marvelettes' Please Mr. Postman in late 1961, the following year was dry.

Gordy knew the Detroit jazz market well, having run a jazz record store in the 1950s that went belly up and motivated him to start Motown in...
