This event has been rescheduled to Wednesday, July 24, 6-8pm. 

Sterling Toles will present a performance of Resurget Cinerbus, an immersive sound work that intertwines news coverage from the 1967 Detroit Rebellion with distinct instrumental music and the artist’s narration of his father’s personal history. Sited in Gordon Park in July 2019, the historic location where the 1967 uprising began. Sterling Toles will play the work live while holding court and conversation with curator, Taylor Renee Aldridge and Manager of techno record label Underground Resistance, Cornelius Harris.

Landlord Colors: Material Detroit is curated and co-presented by Taylor Renee Aldridge, co-founder of ARTS.BLACK; Laura Mott, senior curator at Cranbrook Art Museum; and Ryan Myers-Johnson, curator and executive director of Sidewalk Detroit.

The project is generously supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Maxine and Stuart Frankel Foundation, The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, The National Endowment for the Arts, and donors to the Detroit Initiatives Fund for Cranbrook.
