New Detroit photo exhibition celebrates 20 years of Movement Festival

Charting two decades of techno at Hart Plaza

A new Detroit photo exhibition has opened at the Robert and Mary Ann Bury Community Gallery, celebrating 20 years of Movement Festival. 

'2000/2020: Celebrating 20 Years Of the Electronic Music Festival In Detroit' is curated by Rita Sayegh and Tim Price, and charts the history of the foremost dance event in the city that created techno. The exhibition includes professional images and fan shots of the Hart Plaza Memorial Day weekender back to the first edition in 2000. 

For 2020, the festival moved online for Movement At Home as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, but names have been confirmed for 2021, including Carl Craig and Richie Hawtin. Detroit's techno pioneers have been filling our pages recently, with Robert Hood announcing a new album and dropping the track 'Struggle', and DJ Bone appearing in our Selections series
