features a series of paintings and bronzes inspired by the closure of Detroit’s “Theatre Bizarre,” by artist/founder, John Dunivant. Dunivant has achieved notoriety throughout the city of Detroit, and internationally, as the mastermind behind Theatre Bizarre. Self-funded and built by dozens of artists over the course of months the Theatre Bizarre would take place for one night each year and featured massive carnival rides, pyrotechnics, elaborate lighting rigs, and Coney Island-esque performers. Theatre Bizarre operated for ten years before its discovery and subsequent closure by Detroit city authorities in 2010. Facing an existential crisis, Dunivant chose to embrace the turmoil of the situation, with the resulting works on view in The Expatriate Parade serving as a celebration of his “exile”.
