Opening August 13th at Inner State Gallery, Detroit’s Tyree Guyton will celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Heidelberg Project with his latest solo exhibition Face-ology. This career spanning showcase features new works by the founder and creative force of the city’s most iconic public art installation.
"Face-ology is a reflection of everything that is changing about Detroit; the face of the landscape, the face of the people and even my own face. This show also talks about the challenges we face as a nation. I’m revealing what's underneath the face—I'm pulling off the covers," Guyton said from his Detroit studio.
Face-ology is a new body of work that capture the faces and emotions of the community that continue to shape Guyton’s world. This work is layered with an intense and hauntingly raw ambiguity that draws you in and takes you on a journey. Guyton’s faces have been his most iconic and most collected series throughout his career.
Join us for the artist reception from 7-10 p.m. on Saturday, August 13th. This exhibition is free and open to the public.
