Since setting up shop and launching a residency program in Detroit, Red Bull Arts (formerly Red Bull House of Art) has given dozens of emerging and established artists of varying experience levels, mediums, and disciplines the platform to do what they do best — create.

In addition the residency program, Red Bull Arts Detroit has expanded its opportunities to fellowship positions that allow writers and curators space and time to do their thing, too. Those selected to participate in the residency program, however, receive housing, studio space, a generous stipend as well as access to Detroit’s fully engaged art community. The latest cycle will showcase work by Patrick Quarm, Miatta Kawinzi, and Tiff Massey all of whom explore identity through their distinct visions and bold commentaries spanning emotional installations, wearable sculptures, and textural portraiture. Their work will be on display through June 2.

Redbull Arts Detroit Resident Artist Exhibition opening begins at 6 p.m. on Friday, April 12 at Red Bull Arts Detroit; 1551 Winder St., Detroit; 313-279-7382; Event is free.
