Going West on Michigan Avenue from Downtown Detroit to Westland

Mike Kelley, USA, 2010–11, 76.15 min
The first of the Mobile Homestead videos follows a full-size replica of Kelley’s family house front as it travels from downtown Detroit to its original location in suburban Westland, encountering and documenting urban decay and deep socio-economic disparities along the way.

There is a 15-minute break between the lecture and the screening.

Mobile Homestead is commissioned by Artangel in association with the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD), LUMA Foundation and Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts with the generous support of the Artangel International Circle.
