Call and Response

The Bermuda Project

Paul Artspace has partnered with GEDOK to present two exhibitions to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the sister city partnership between Stuttgart, Germany and St. Louis, MO, USA. The first of these is now open, presenting current American photography in the vhs-photo gallery in Stuttgart.

The Stuttgart exhibition, "VOTE for…presents St. Louis artists," refers to the upcoming presidential election in the US and how campaign advertising dominates news coverage and political events around the world for months. The American photographers included in the exhibitions encourage us to examine democratic values such as justice, freedom, and equality.

The second exhibition, "Call and Response", will take place in St. Louis at The Bermuda Project and includes artists representing Stuttgart as they contemplate current events from their perspective.

The exhibitions are supported by the city of Stuttgart and the St. Louis-Stuttgart Sister Cities organization.

Participating artists (Stuttgart): Nate Burell, Jennifer Colten, Jess T. Dugan and Vanessa Fabbre, Jen Everett, Nate Larson, Drew Nikonowicz, Julia Wenz, Peter Franck and WORK / PLAY.

Participating artists (St. Louis): Peter Franck, Peter Haury, Nicole Kather, Traci Kelly, Bruno Nagel, Eva Schmeckenbecher, Thomas Ulm, Julia Wenz

Common Ground

COCA (Center of Creative Arts)

Join us in contributing to Common Ground, a new, participatory exhibition celebrating the opening of COCA’s expanded Ferring East Wing led by artist, Olanyiyi Akindiya.

Common Ground is a place to be together in this moment: an opportunity for us all to forget our differences, what positions we hold in society or any of the other cultural forces that push us apart.

Common Ground is designed not only as an exhibition, but also as an ongoing collaboration with the community. There is work by the artist throughout COCA to inspire visitors to see, think, discuss, decide. The heart of the exhibit is made of modular, interchangeable pieces that symbolize the human form and are easy to manipulate. Each visitor can choose to add, move, or take away any element, creating an ever-evolving visual dialogue throughout the course of the exhibition. It will be built in by the visitors, in constant flux. The modular human figures become the tools for all of us to tell our new stories of today and what we hope tomorrow should give birth to. This piece gives us the chance to rewrite the wrong, to understand we cannot do anything about what has happened, but we can make tomorrow a better place for the next generation. Resiliency lies in us coming together to honor and celebrate our differences.
