Detroit is Everywhere: Post-Urban Landscape
Saturday May 20, 1995 – Saturday July 1, 1995
Dan Hoffman, Richard Plunz, Camilo José Vergara, Kyong Park
Once hailed as the model of urban productivity and later maligned as an example of inner-city decay, Detroit served as an empirical model for every North American city in transition. Much of what emerged in Detroit’s urbanism over the decades was without precedent; as such, it was a case study against which other cities could measure themselves and from which they could learn, as well as an opportunity to test strategies of urban regeneration. The exhibition Detroit is Everywhere was a collaborative inquiry by Camilo José Vergara, Richard Plunz, Dan Hoffman and Storefront for Art and Architecture, consisting of urban studies and proposals for the city of Detroit.
