This year’s group exhibitions deliver works from all over the world and from our very own backyard.

From the south of France, Unfurled: Supports/Surfaces showcases work by more than 14 artists created during 1966 through 1976 while the country endured social upheaval. Parallels and Peripheries, an ongoing series originating in Miami, explores art in relation to myth, memory, and sociopolitical environments. Southeast Michigan artists were selected for the Useless Utility collection, which plays within the blurred space between domestic and work life. Mike Kelly’s Mobile Homestead will also get a colorful makeover from Gradient Colors, an immersive installation from ProjectArt students. The opening will include music by John FM as well as a performance by artist collective the TETRA.

MOCAD Winter exhibitions opening members preview begins on Friday, Feb. 1 at 6 p.m., reception begins at 7 p.m.; 4454 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-832-6622; mocadetroit.org; $5 donation.
