SESSION

PRIDE IN

06:30 PM OUT

07:45 PM (2006)

In spite of or perhaps on account of recent socio-economic adversities, representations of Detroit project an unparalleled spirit of resilience. An independent, self-reflective sense of achievement permeates the visual and narrative structure of many recent projects, underscoring the exhilarated pleasure of pride in the face of sometimes intolerable struggle. Is it pride on steroids? Or worse, hubris? Or is it a warranted sense of collective accomplishment given the city’s exceptional social, political, and cultural contributions projected far beyond its material bounds?
