Forth From Its Hinges—the annual series of progressive, local art and music—is returning for its third year this July. Housed in the same warehouse on Ann Arbor’s south side, FFIH focuses this year on the collaborative and creative curation of the area’s most expressive emerging artists. The site-based production offers artists and audiences alike the opportunity to experience large-scale installations and experimental performances that transcend the usual and explore the unknown–this is not a gallery, club, concert hall, or street fair. The young FFIH curators aim to expose and expand their own community of unseen talent by producing a series that is free from expectation, free from censorship, free from tradition, and free of charge. Forth From Its Hinges seeks to represent local art, not as it exists today, but as what it can and will be in the future.
