Heterotopias are what Michel Foucault called places that are not utopias: alternate approaches to the relationship between space and time. Henshin is the word used when certain kinds of Japanese superheroes transform into their super-powered form. Thus, these Henshintopias are constantly transforming places that approach animation and people that approach inanimateness.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
