Exhibition - Nicolas Lobo: Wellness Center

Saturday, Jul 20, 2019 at 11:00am

Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit
4454 Woodward Avenue
Detroit, MI 48201

Mike Kelley’s Mobile Homestead at MOCAD presents a new series of works by Nicolas Lobo (b. 1979, Los Angeles; lives in Miami) in a solo exhibition entitled Wellness Center. Miami’s identity as a resort city built atop a crumbling ecology
 is a source of rich contemplation for Lobo’s research-intensive process. His work often focuses on points of friction within the urban milieu, from informal markets—transnational multi-service shops and relics of the leisure industry. In recent work, the Miami-based artist has focused on ways in which the human body extends into the socioeconomic, spanning between individual and collective space.

Wellness Center is conceived specifically for Mike Kelley’s Mobile Homestead at MOCAD, in which Lobo, concerned with the tension between labor and leisure imagines wellness and healing from a variety of collective harms; presenting a prototype for utilities of a new kind.

Exhibition Date: May 10, 2019 - August 4, 2019
