The MONA exhibit itself is a singular and enlightening overview of how our talented friends in Japan tackle the myriad possibilities of abstract art. Jessica Hopkins has assembled an impressive lineup and the manner in which these artists address thematic nuances is a fresh and startling revelation. - Robert del Valle
Our enchantment with the Art|Room, a MONA project, is also keeping us happy this [art] season! - Real Detroit Weekly
In his studio ... Bourgeau has created complex and beautiful paintings - all from inside his laptop computer, only later transferring them onto paper or canvas. These new works are both original and elaborate in form and color as if at the hand of a reborn Picabia, or as if James Joyce or Samuel Beckett could paint their words, making these new works uniquely intelligent and emotional creations well beyond any possible pseudonym. - Lucio Pozzi, the Art Newspaper
"We should really understand the history of art as the history of dialectical mutations and not just within a historical epoch, but also within the development of an artistís individual work.
The exciting development of art throughout the centuries shows the explosions, the dreams, the utopias, and the setbacks that keep recurring from generation to generation, from decade to decade: A titanic battle, seething with contradictions, before the walls of Paris and Berlin and New York and now in Detroit.
And no matter how these walls have been torn down by history, they still resurrect a revised vision and engage our minds."
- Cesar Marzetti, for the catalog
The public is invited without charge, refreshments will be served.
Hope to see you, Saturday! - Jessica
