Detroiters Gina Reichert and Mitch Cope have spent six years investigating new models of contemporary art and architectural practice. Their design studio situated itself in the public realm offering over-the-counter consultations and marketed $99 house call specials.
The team will discuss their work as visual artists with their Design 99 studio and as faciliators and collaborators with Power House Productions in a free public presentation “Too Much of a Good Thing,” Thursday, October 18, at 7 p.m. in Assumption University’s Freed-Orman Centre.
Reichert and Cope founded a nonprofit organization to develop a test site for ideas and methods, low- and high-tech building systems, and a point of conversation for their entire neighbourhood.
The Humanities Research Group has sponsored their appearance as part of its Distinguished Speakers Series.
