"ARTSEEN 9: OFF-SITE SHOWCASE OF NEW AND EXPERIMENTAL ART"
Nature of Activity: Open, unjuried off-site exhibition. Windsor/Detroit area artists. Mixed media site installations, interventions and performance.
Location: Former zipper factory on Monmouth Rd. in historic Walkerville district
Artcite's annual, open, unjuried, off-site exhibition and performance event, featuring new and experimental visual art, site-specific installation, film and performance. In 2001, "ARTSEEN 9" took place in an old zipper factory in Windsor's historic Walkerville district, an intimate space full of twists and turns and small rooms, and featured a diverse collection of works by nearly 40 Windsor-Detroit area artists and collectives. This project was made possible with the generous assistance of Danzig Enterprizes, which allowed Artcite Inc. to access this interesting, second-floor location at a nominal fee. Media coverage was positive and extensive, with the result that hundreds of people visited the exhibition during the two-week run (including a large, general public).
