Artist: Ari Marcopoulos
Location: 2nd Floor, Whitney Biennial 2010
Detroit, 2009, by Ari Marcopoulos is a large video projection in a black room on the second floor. About seven and a half minutes long, the work documents adolescent participants in Detroit, Michigan’s “noise rock” scene improvising music on the floor of a bedroom. The approach to the subjects is straightforward and plain, allowing a focus on content rare in the rest of the Biennial.
