Inspired by Detroit, the greatest American industrial city of the 20th Century, Philip Levine and Andrew Moore will discuss their personal histories and creative evolutions with the city, as well as the controversy regarding images of the ruins in the city’s depiction over the last three decades. The conversation will be a unique opportunity to hear two extraordinary artists as they discuss their experiences with one of the most emblematic American cities of our times through dialogue, poetry and images.
During the course of the conversation, Andrew Moore will show images of his large-format photographs from his 2008-2009 project Detroit Disassembled.

No longer the Motor City of boom-time industry, the city of Detroit has fallen into an incredible state of dilapidation since the decline of the American auto industry after the Second World War. Today, whole sections of the city resemble a war zone, its once-spectacular architectural grandeur reduced to vacant ruins. In Detroit Disassembled, photographer Andrew Moore records a territory in which the ordinary flow of time-or the forward march of the assembly line-appears to have been thrown spectacularly into reverse. Photographer Andrew Moore will be joined by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Philip Levine who wrote an essay for the book.
