MOCA Detroit and Artangel announced today that construction will begin on a full-size replica of Mike Kelley’s childhood home.
From May 16-20, 2012, the Whitney will screen three videos Kelley created during the first phase of the Mobile Homestead project. On May 20 John C. Welchman, co-director of the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts, and Scott Benzel, a frequent Kelley collaborator and producer of the Mobile Homestead videos, will discuss the project.
