Introduction

On October 26th through 28th 2017 in Detroit comes the 10th annual assemblage of over 130 extraordinary artists from across this world to display over 150 their most introspective creations at the:

DAMNED Exhibition of Enlightened Darkness

From the infamous to the freshest of local and international talent, this prodigious congregation will allow us a glimpse within the diverse shadows of id and ego…of overall mind and encompassing soul guaranteed to intrigue, disturb, inspire or repulse.  Rising from within the ashes of Detroit’s historic institution of Devil’s Night, this is not Halloween-themed art but an immersion within the immeasurable realms of consciousness through an elegant ambiance of live ethereal music and cirque/butoh-inspired performances.

There are 3 nights of DAMNED, each with its own distinct theme for the ambiance and performances that flourish within the exhibition:

  • 10/26 “The Darkness” – A night of introspective exploration within the shadowed and primal essence of self. This opening night features an intimate VIP Preview/Artist Reception, a formal absinthe tasting courtesy of Two James Spirits, an on-site chef preparing hot hors d’œuvres and experimental aerial and butoh-inspired performances.
  • 10/27 “The Enlightenment” – A night of the extrospective self enlightened through light, fire and the ethereal.  This gala night features an on-site chef preparing a sampling of internationally-inspired tapas with flavored mead tasting courtesy of B Nektar Meadery and exotic fire, aerial and experimental performances.

Each night also offers a lush Moroccan-inspired VIP Lounge, a gallery store to purchase art, our Devil Girl hostesses and, of course, the art.
