    Thank You, Mies
    Curated by Dennis A. Nawrocki
    Detroit’s art scene is rife with overheated expressionism, gritty assemblages, and interrelational social practice. As a counter to this aesthetic, curator Dennis Nawrocki spotlights a style of abstract art that has long focused on clarity and order instead of overt emotions. On view are sculptures and paintings by 20 Detroit-area artists who picked up the baton of formalism and forged images perhaps best defined by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s mantra, “Less is more.”
