99 Cents or Less

May 19–August 6, 2017
Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit

A major group exhibition of ninety-nine artists based in the United States addresses Detroit’s ongoing economic crisis and its 2013 bankruptcy. Four years after a federal judge approved Detroit’s bankruptcy-exit plan, the city’s financial present and future are still in flux. This exhibition is a reflection on the realities of a city that was once one of the country’s wealthiest and most diverse. Work by Piero Golia, Alex Israel, Adam McEwen, Josephine Meckseper, and Sterling Ruby is included.

Adam McEwen is known for works that engage viewers with a dark yet poignant sense of humor. His recent sculptural works include a life-size coffin-carrier fabricated from solid graphite and deployed air bags cast in concrete. This exhibition marks the artist’s first solo museum show in the United States. He was the Aspen Art Museum’s 2016–17 Distinguished Artist in Residence.
