Detroit Research is a new journal of practice and artist research for Detroit exploring social practice, ceramics, choreography, music, performance, and critical theory. Detroit Research seeks to be a forum for presenting and reflecting upon some of the most challenging post-studio and studio practices emerging in Detroit and to cultivate a critical language for talking about such practices within a national and international framework. Each issue of the journal will have a guest editor and a featured artist as well as work devoted to artist research, and each issue will contain a reflection upon a historically important Detroit journal. Detroit Research will appear in Spring and Fall of each year.
Volume Two is guest edited by Biba Bell, PhD on dance in/outside Detroit.
Featured artist is ceramists Marie T. Hermann.

First edition. Late edition.
This just in! We are very proud to have published Scott Hocking's newest collection of photograph "Detroit Nights", a late entry contribution to our Culture Lab pop-up.
These images are, like much of the artist's work, moving, surprising, sometimes humorous, and suspenseful. They show the city in a manner that few ever see it.
It is like a place that lies out beyond the parking lot from that dream you had the other night, you know, the dream where you never looked out past the parking lot. If you had, this is what you would have seen.
When we saw these images the first time we were so taken with them we thought "Well, these have to be a book." And so we made them a book. And that is the way art works. When it's good.
About the artist: For Nora’s Culture Lab Pop Up, Detroit’s favorite man of mystery Scott Hocking might be welding an antique Ford Edsel to a sidewalk, or mass producing cassettes of spooky Halloween fart sounds. He might also be producing a book with Nora’s own Toby Barlow called Detroit Nights. Hocking describes the ongoing project (started in the mid 90s) as an attempt to capture the “strange serenity that can be found off the beaten paths”. The book is a selection of the last eight years, after Hocking switched from film to digital.
127 pages, softcover.
In November 1985, Andy Warhol traveled from New York to Detroit promoting his new publication America with a scheduled stop at the DIA for a special book signing.
Warhol took time for an interview with Colby and staff photographer Michelle Andonian joined them along with Warhol’s assistant Christopher Makos. The group had breakfast on the top floor restaurant of the Ponchatrain Hotel where Warhol took in the view of the city (he later remarked in his diary that Detroit was so sprawling, it reminded him of Los Angeles).
We've taken several of our favorite things and combined them, our love of ceramics and food.
