“SITE 002” Takes Place in Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian Turkel House

The newest iteration of SITE is set against the organic architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Dorothy G. Turkel House. The current art exhibition, “SITE 002,” is “housed” in Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian Turkel House, which was restored in 2006 by current owners Norm Silk and Dale Morgan, under the guidance of former Wright apprentice Lawrence Brink.

The Turkel House is an example of one of Wright’s Usonian Automatic designs, which grew out of the Usonian construction he originated during the Great Depression. Detroit’s Library Street Collective presents contemporary artworks by Frank Stella, Nick Cave, Hank Willis Thomas, Loie Hollowell, Beverly Fishman, and Amoako Boafo.

Today, the Turkel House is one of the best-preserved examples of Frank Lloyd Wright’s traditional Usonian geometry and materials, which combine to create the perfect setting for works by Frank Stella, Nick Cave, Hank Willis Thomas, Loie Hollowell, Beverly Fishman, Amoako Boafo—and many more.

“We have long standing relationships with some of them through our past exhibitions and projects, while others we are new to working with. We thought the space was so incredible and special that it called for artists who we felt might really love the ideas behind SITE, as well as the history and significance of the space.”

Library Street Collective co-founder Anthony Curis explained to Galerie how they chose the artists.

SITE at Frank Lloyd Wright‘s home was not created specifically for the pandemic but was intended as a way to connect the visual arts and the built environment. By being 100 percent virtual, the Library Street Collective removes the constraints of time and place to redefine how people interface with and experience modern art through a virtual art exhibition.
