Opening August 13th at Inner State Gallery, Detroit’s Tyree Guyton will celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Heidelberg Project with his latest solo exhibition Face-ology a career spanning showcase, featuring new works by the founder and creative force of the city’s most iconic public art installation.

"Face-ology is a reflection of everything that is changing about Detroit; the face of the landscape, the face of the people and even my own face. This show also talks about the challenges we face as a nation. I’m revealing what's underneath the face—I'm pulling off the covers," Guyton said from his Detroit studio.

Face-ology is a new body of work including works on paper that capture the faces and emotions of the community that continue to shape Guyton’s world. Caricature-styled imagery that completely eludes any reference to race or ethnicity, Guyton’s faces are consistent through his bold use of colors and his signature wide-toothed grins. However, this work is layered with an intense and hauntingly raw ambiguity that draws you in and takes you on a journey. Guyton’s faces have been his most iconic and most-collected series throughout his career.
