  • June 14 - July 14: Complex Movements at Charles H. Wright in Detroit



    Complex Movements at the Charles H. Wright Museum

    Detroit-based artist collective Complex Movements announces the public work-in-progress opening of Beware of The Dandelions on Thursday, June 20, 2013 from 7:00pm-10:00pm at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit, MI. Beware of The Dandelions is a multi-media performance experience and installation exhibit based on an original science fiction parable about transformation and social justice movements as complex systems.

    Presented in collaboration with the opening of the 15th annual Allied Media Conference, Beware of The Dandelions uses interactive hip-hop performance, video projection, and creative technologies to explore the relationship between art, science, and social justice. Beware of the Dandelions leaves participants with an opportunity to investigate a new theory of change for the world.

    Complex Movements is inspired by Grace Lee Boggs and decentralized community-led social justice movements in Detroit and beyond. The collective is comprised of graphic designer/fine artist Wesley Taylor, music producer/filmmaker Waajeed, hip-hop lyricist/activist Invincible, and creative technologist/multimedia artist Carlos (L05) Garcia. The installation was created in collaboration with Detroit based architect Aaron Jones.

    Following the opening are multiple opportunities to experience a performances and view the exhibit. The event is free admission, open to all ages, and ADA accessible. Reservation for performances can be made online at complexmovements.eventbrite.com. Beware of The Dandelions is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

    “The piece drew me in because all of its elements were so strong. I loved the piece because not only is it so exciting aesthetically with many fascinating, beautiful and unusual media elements to explore, but conceptually, it is a piece with a clear set of values about networking, the possibilities for communities to make their own change, and transforming margins into creative nodes of participation.” - Cathy Edwards, Dir. of Programming at the Int’l Festival of Arts and Ideas (New Haven, CT)
