Mike Kelley - Mobile Homestead Activation - MOCA U - MOCAtv

139 views 15 hours ago
Mobile Homestead is a public art project by Mike Kelley. The mobile section, a facade on wheels, is designed to carry out public service when detached from its permanent "residence", a full scale replica of Kelley's childhood home, permanently installed at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit.

As part of the exhibition MIKE KELLEY, for the first time, this traveling section was activated outside of Detroit, on site at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA where it hosted social services and community initiatives from May 29 through July 28, 2014.

Thank you to all who participated in the successful activation of Mobile Homestead in Los Angeles.

Mobile Homestead in Los Angeles is made possible by Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts.

“Mobile Homestead covertly makes a distinction between public art and private art, between the notions that art functions for the social good, and that art addresses personal desires and concerns… It has a public side, and a secret side.” – Mike Kelley, 2011
