Oliver Lee Jackson is known for creating complex and layered images in which figurative elements—or what he calls “paint people”—emerge from abstract fields of vibrant color. Jackson’s practice is informed by a deep understanding of global art history—from early modern European painting to African art. Yet his works do not aim to elevate a single message, narrative, or meaning. Rather, the works serve as an open invitation to slow and close looking, encouraging viewers to stake emotional claim on the paintings and not wait for instructions on what to see.

Drawn primarily from the Museum’s permanent collection, the works on display in the exhibition create journeys through expanses of both geography and history, from the surviving abbeys of medieval Europe to the skyscrapers of modern America.

Damon Davis’s All Hands On Deck is a powerful artwork that addresses social justice and the call for change. He conceived the original photographs of hands held up high during the months-long protests after Michael Brown Jr. was shot and killed in Ferguson in August 2014. Recalling the protestors’ chant “Hands up don’t shoot” that was echoed throughout the protests—they were photographed with their “hands up.” That signal of surrender, however, is transformed in Davis’s photographs into one of resistance, fortitude, and community. This free exhibition will be on view through March 22, 2022.

St. Louis–based artist Jess T. Dugan is known for their color photographs that explore the power of identity, desire, and connection. In Currents 120: Jess T. Dugan, the Museum presents a selection of 20 recent works—portraits, self-portraits, and still lifes—many of which were created specifically for this exhibition. Within a framework of queer and nonbinary experience and from an actively constructed sense of masculinity, Dugan’s portraits examine intersections between individual identity and the search for intimate connection with others.

A Macon, Mississippi native, Uvee Hayes was born and reared with the Blues. Her mom had a little country store where she would have Friday and Saturday night gatherings. People would come from all over to play, to sing, to listen, to dance. “You heard nothing but the blues,” says Uvee, “and those folks danced the dust up off the floor.” Join Uvee for a morning of classic Blues straight from the source.

Jess T. Dugan is an artist whose work explores issues of identity—particularly gender and sexuality—through photographic portraiture. Drawing from their experience as a queer, nonbinary person, Dugan’s work continually investigates what it means to live authentically and how visual representation plays a powerful role in that process. Dugan was the 2020–2021 Henry L. and Natalie E. Freund Teaching Fellow at the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis, and their work is featured in Currents 120. The exhibition is sponsored in part by the Henry L. and Natalie E. Freund Endowment Fund.

If dreams are the royal road to the unconscious, how do writers, poets, dramatists, and novelists use dreams to explore those intangible truths that the report of conscious experience fails adequately to convey?  In this Zoom talk, Salley Vickers will consider the varied uses of dream in ancient literature, Shakespeare, and children’s literature as well as touching lightly on her own work.
