Popps Packing Fall/Winter Residency
Due Jun 29 2018

Popps Packing is an artist community located on the Hamatramck Detorit Border in Michigan. Our programs and projects range form exhibtions, workshops, experimental happenings, community events, and a robust Artist in Residency progrma with an internation reach.

With the help of neighbors, local artists and past residents, we have been reimagining the various underused spaces that surround us into an artistic hub, creating a platform for local and visiting artists to explore installations, architectural interventions, and research based projects while also stabilizing our neighborhood. Artists who participate in our program are generally interested in the unique context of Detroit and the many layered narratives that exist here.

Popps Packing offers artists many different environments to work in. In addition to the communal studios, we offer the various structures and empty lots around the Popps compound as sites for exploration. The abundance of land, raw materials and structures around Popps give artists many opportunities to realize ambitious site specific projects that could not be accomplished in a traditional studio environment.
