HOW TO RUST (Julia Yezbick, 2016 25 min.)

March 20 at 11am.
Detroit artist Olayami Dabls’ installation “Iron Teaching Rocks How to Rust” is a metaphor for the forced assimilation of Africans to European culture and language. Here Dabls’ bricolage of the postindustrial landscape becomes a commentary on the half-life of Fordism, where the relationship between cultural production, history, and place is recast, revealing larger truths about how we mythologize a former glory and shape an imagined future.
