A discussion about the alchemy of public engagement in contemporary art
Mary Clare Stevens, executive director of the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts, joins artists and Destroy All Monsters band mates Jim Shaw and Cary Loren to discuss their roles in Mike Kelley’s Mobile Homestead project and its collision of public art, subculture, and independent art practice. Conceived in 2005 and completed this year, Mobile Homestead, is a full-scale replica of Kelley’s childhood home in suburban Detroit. Built on a lot behind the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, the structure features a detachable mobile façade designed to provide community services on the fly, a community art gallery, as well as a labyrinthine basement for activities that Kelley described as “private rites of an aesthetic nature.”
