Welcome to Detroit: Suzy Lake and Orlando Ford
Curated by Jessica Cappuccitti

Welcome to Detroit: Suzy Lake and Orlando Ford includes photographs by Lake and a film by Ford that ask what it means for a city to be observed, documented and perceived by outsiders. Lake’s series, Performing an Archive, examines the cycle of ruin and revitalization in the Detroit working-class neighbourhoods where she grew up. Ford’s film, Where the Heart Is, tells a vibrant, human tale of a growing city through candid interviews with Detroit residents.
