"Detroit Disassembled" Ruins Exhibit Edges Closer to Detroit
“Detroit Disassembled,” now opening in Grand Rapids, first was shown at the Akron Art Museum in Akron, Ohio, another industrial city in transition, which saw the show as a cautionary tale.
“That’s absolutely how they took it – what Akron could have been or what it could have been," photographer Andrew Moore told Mlive.com.
The show also has been seen in Queens Museum of Art in New York City and now in Grand Rapids. Moore doubts it'll ever be seen in Detroit.
“I think Detroit is treating the whole subject of its physical decline of its city much more gingerly,” he said. “It’s hard to confront the topic directly.”
