MW Gallery is the new permanent home of the Mott-Warsh Collection (MWC).
We provide a welcoming environment for engagement with fine art created by artists of the African diaspora and those who reflect on it.
Art can be a catalyst for cultural awareness, creative thinking, and self-empowerment.
The gallery's current exhibition, Where Do We Go from Here? Selections from the Mott-Warsh Collection features 43 works by Lorna Simpson, Fabrice Monteiro, Adrian Piper, Glenn Ligon, Emma Amos, Radcliffe Bailey, Dawoud Bey and more.
Film Screening: "The Truth Is I Hear You"
January 13- March 19, 2017
In August of 2016 the Mott-Warsh Collection collaborated with Cranbrook Art Museum to bring the public artwork, In Search of the Truth (The Truth Booth) to Flint, MI. The Truth Booth--a portable, inflatable video recording studio in the shape of a giant speech bubble, is the creation of artists Ryan Alexiev, Jim Ricks, Will Sylvester and Hank Willis Thomas, aka Cause Collective.
The booth, which has toured the world, spent 2 weeks in Detroit and Flint, where over 1000 residents were invited to step inside and complete the sentence, "The truth is..." Many of those recordings are featured in "The Truth Is I Hear You," a 42 minute film currently on exhibit at both the MW Gallery and Cranbrook Art Museum through March 19. The film is accompanied by an eight-minute documentary about the project by Detroit filmmakers, The Right Brothers.
