Opening to the public Friday, October 17th from 7-10pm, Inner State Gallery is proud to welcome Tyree Guyton for his first Detroit solo exhibition in five years. "Spirit", is an exhibition showcasing Guyton’s Faces In The Hood collection from the iconic Faces of God series. Each work in this collection was originally salvaged from the 1999 demolition, then stored in the War Room House which was set ablaze after the 5th arson attack on his public installation, the Heidelberg Project. From the disrupted canvas resulting from the fire, Guyton painstakingly reimagined, reworked and renewed each piece, infusing new life and new energy. In addition to Faces In The Hood, Guyton will debut his latest collection of Faces of God, new original works on paper that were created during his year-long residency in Basel, Switzerland.
“As an artist, I felt my job was to take that which was meant to be an act of harm and destruction and create magic—new possibilities! A work that demonstrates that you CANNOT kill spirit,” Guyton said in his studio space in Midtown Detroit. “I have risen to another level of consciousness where I can see the mighty hands of Yahweh (God) in everything.”
