ESTHER SHALEV-GERZ

SELECTIONS FROM THE GOLD ROOM

JANUARY 25 – MARCH 23, 2019

First exhibited in The Swedish History Museum, we are pleased to bring an excerpt of Esther Shalev-Gerz’s “The Gold Room” to Detroit. These portraits capture and unfold stories through conversation around five artifacts from the museum’s collection and five objects brought overseas by refugees. Highlighting the cultural and personal value of these objects, Shalev-Gerz floats a gold square over the works that veil the images while simultaneously opening passageways into the past.
