An audio-visual storytelling exhibition of contemporary underground dance communities in Detroit

Bubble Metropolis” is an audio-visual storytelling experience that illustrates the diverse bodies of people from various origins, identities and backgrounds that are united by electronic music.

As a part of photographer Corine Vermeulen’s “The Walk-in Portrait Studio” (2009-present), this exhibition presents recent portraits taken at electronic music events within Detroit. The images are coupled with audio stories by producer Conor Anderson, and include the voices of community members like Cornelius Harris of Underground Resistance, Julisa Abad, LGBTQ rights advocate, and DJ Terri “WhoDat” McQueen.

Experience their work as it observes various communities where electronic music is the foundation for belonging.

“Bubble Metropolis” will be on display at El Club in Southwest Detroit during normal business hours until August 20. Bring along your phone to listen to the accompanying audio stories at wdet.org/bubble.
