33 Artists; 66 works

333 Midland is located in a complex of abandoned postindustrial factories brought back to life by a renaissance of Detroit artists.

Fifteen percent of art sales of Revolted! went to support the Detroit IWW’s Wobbly Kitchen’s bi-monthly event which feeds hundreds of homeless and forgotten workers.

“Throne for a Clown”: Loren’s piece celebrates the 100th anniversary of Marcel Duchamp’s “Fountain,” which outraged the art world in 1917. Loren says his piece also references, “Trump’s psychosexual “golden shower” episode which was rumored to have been video taped by Russian agents for kompromat and future blackmail. Also, videos with Trump boasting about his expensive golden bathroom fixtures.
