Live/Concert

Art X Detroit opening night

When: Thu., April 9, 5 p.m. 2015

Detroit’s biennial Art X Kresge Arts Experience (see our arts feature this week for more information) kicks off three weekends of events around town. At MOCAD alone, you’ll find a variety of happenings as diverse as the event itself. In addition to exhibiting the visual works of a number of the Kresge arts fellows, novelist Lynne Tillman will hold a book reading and lecture, and fellow Kate Daughdrill will present an exhibition on her eastside urban farm, Burnside Farm, and head a number of activities including a medicinal food and tea pairing. It’s worth noting there are also events going on at the nearby DFT (including a live performance from the MC5’s Wayne Kramer — see our music feature this week) and the N’Namdi Gallery (featuring a DJ mix from Chris Campbell of WDET’s Progressive Underground). The full schedule and list of participating venues is available at artxdetroit.com.
