New Guest Blogger: Colin Darke, Artist and Writer, Detroit

A very big thanks to Bill Bilowit and Grela Orihuela of Wet Heat Project for their in-depth series of texts and videos exploring the “Goings & Comings” of artists in and out of Miami. If you want to see more work by Wet Heat Project, visit their website here and view more of their short documentary films here.

Next up is Colin Darke, an artist, writer, and attorney based in Detroit, Michigan. Colin has exhibited extensively throughout Michigan, and in 2010 Rackstraw Downes, a 2009 MacArthur Fellow, selected one of Colin’s pieces for the 18th Annual National Juried Exhibition at the Bowery Gallery in New York City. Colin writes for the Brooklyn-based art blog Hyperallergic, and is a cultural critic for The Huffington Post.  He is also the Editor-in-Chief of the cultural webzines TheDetroiter.com and ArtSibs.com. You can visit Colin’s website here. We’re looking forward to Colin’s posts over the next two weeks!
