Artist Carl Auge Solo Exhibition Dates in Detroit

The always thoughtfully well spoken and talented Carl Auge – who you might recall as the bass player in the legendary His Hero Is Gone – will be in Detroit, Michigan this July. While Carl has been around the Hardcore and Punk scene for years, what’s really setting him apart these days is his artwork. With pieces that dissect the urban sprawl to the everyday struggle we all encounter while just trying to make it one more day. This solo exhibition entitled “Distance” is his first ever in the necropolis known as Detroit.

The opening reception is Saturday, July 23rd from 5-8pm and is located at the Detroit Museum of Healing, 3434 Russell Street and will run to August 6th. For more information, the venue’s phone number is 313-671-0331.  For those in proximity to the area, I would highly suggest checking this event out. Carl’s work speaks volumes about the current state of Detroit. Forged from the automobile industry and plagued by corrupt politicians, the notion that Detroit is one of  toughest cities in the United States is hard to ignore.

Detroit has always stood as a no-nonsense, in your face, tough as nails bastion. From the decaying core of it’s streets to the rapid gentrification that has swept in and altered a number of neighborhoods. Its face and attitude has weathered a remarkable onslaught of change and abuse – only to defiantly pick itself back up and continue on.

Also, check out this interview that goes a little more into Carl’s mindset and inspirations for his artwork which was featured here on CVLT Nation last year.
