joy garnett

Sometimes finding neat things is like a scavenger hunt online:
Check email. Hear from a pittsburgh gallery owner who wants to start dialog between detroit and pittsburgh. Check his
daily blog. Find a link to a ny writer/curator's site. View his show at a gallery in brooklyn. Find Joy Garnett. Look up her site. Enjoy some of the work. Start over with some other odd piece of info. Fun. Fun.

Yes, I would like to make connections, if I can. I don't know where anything might lead. I am actually not from Pittsburgh and am somewhat a stranger in town and I have never been in the Detroit area.

It just seems that from a distance the two towns have a lot in common. Both have historic and iconic identities tied to industry. Both went through a lot of trauma and experienced a lot of suburban flight. And, both cities have huge creative diasporas of people who have left which could play a big role in thier futures if they could be tapped into.
It seems like both scenes have a lot of spread out underground stuff going on.
