Current Show & Exhibition Events:

Of An Era

Of An Era features artwork that engages with ideas of nostalgia and generational identity. The notion of a “bygone era” can evoke sentimental feelings and memories, both real and envisioned. Other artworks reflect the spirit of a generation and its possibilities and ideas. The exhibition is organized around three interrelated themes: the known and imagined past, the tumultuous present, and optimistic visions of the future. 

Show Dates: November 5 – December 10, 2021
Gallery Hours: Wed-Fri. 2-5pm, Sat. 12–4pm (During Exhibitions Only)

About the Jurors:

Jova Lynne, a multidisciplinary conceptual artist and curator, focused on facilitating inclusive and community-based practices. Prior to coming to MOCAD, she worked at the Museum of Moving Image in Queens, New York, and at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. She is additionally a founder of Detroit’s Bulk Space, which offers studio space to marginalized artists. 

Born and raised in New York City, Lynne moved to Michigan in 2015 to pursue her MFA at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Lynne remains an active interdisciplinary artist herself, grappling with themes of cultural, racial and gender identity through media ranging from video to performance to sculpture. Her work was most recently spotlighted in an exhibition at Simone DeSousa Gallery in Detroit.
