As the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit opens the second installment of the “Barely There” exhibition, the Midtown museum is also hosting a French artist with her first solo show in the United States.

Stephanie Nava is presenting the piece “Considering a Plot (Dig for Victory)” which looks at the British version of “Victory Gardens” during World War Two and comments on the current ideas of urban gardening.

Nava talked to me about her piece, her interest in Detroit music and her experience at MOCAD.
