The Art Book Review‘s On the Road: Detroit was an exhibition of art and artists’ books from and about Detroit and the larger Great Lakes-area. Organized by the Art Book Review and presented by Creative Rights, the project features an interactive, suspended exhibition of catalogues, artist monographs, small run and handmade artists’ books and zines amongst other types of ephemera and publications gathered through an open call to artists and publishers. During the exhibition, the Art Book Review also engaged with local writers to trade books for reviews to be published on theartbookreview.org.
