Performed by LAKA. Written/Directed by Joe Hanrahan.

THE MIDNIGHT COMPANY presents ST. LOUIS WOMAN. The show will honor the enduring legacy of some of the amazing women in St. Louis who brought this city to the world with their timeless music, dance and poetry. LAKA will portray such legendary artists as Josephine Baker, Tina Turner and Katherine Dunham (and present the poetry of Maya Angelou, the song stylings of chart-toppers Fontella Bass and Ann Peebles, and the Gospel classics of the legendary Willie Mae Ford Smith). These women were born in St. Louis, or came here when young (typically to join Gospel choirs), or, in Dunham’s case, moved here during the height of their careers to continue their momentous work.

RACHEL LEBO, LINDENWOOD FACULTY EXHIBITION AT FOUNDRY ART CENTRE 

October 7 – November 19, 2022

The Foundry Art Centre is excited to announce the opening of I am Rachel, but let’s be Emily by Rachel Lebo and Lindenwood University’s Art and Design Faculty Exhibition. In I am Rachel, but let’s be Emily, Rachel Lebo thinks about the potential energy of your teenage years when everything feels heightened and words cannot explain. Short story fiction has played a large role in Lebo’s work since reading A.M. Homes’ Chunky in Heat and meeting a character called Cheryl for the first time. Since then, she has looked at her works as operating similarly to short stories using color, emphasis on certain details, and characters in order to float as close as she can to the point without ever introducing a plot. The final paintings reflect a multi-faceted collaboration between Rachel, the subjects of the works, characters from short story fiction, and their authors.

Lebo grew up on the east coast in Baltimore County, Maryland. She currently resides in St. Louis, working across media in painting, sculpture, and story-telling. She likes to step into other characters in order to explore ideas and herself. I am Rachel, but let’s be Emily will be on view in Gallery I. Galleries II & III will feature work from the faculty members from Lindenwood University’s Art & Design Department. Media from all disciplines will be represented including photography, painting, sculpture, and digital media.

The opening reception for I am Rachel, but let’s be Emily and Lindenwood University’s Art & Design Department Exhibition will be held on October 7, 5-8pm, as part of the Foundry’s First Friday programming. Live music by Lofty’s Comet, art activities, a cash bar, and more will be available during the reception. Both exhibitions will be open through November 19th. For more information, please visit us at https://foundryartcentre.org or email Jessica Mannisi, Art & Exhibitions Coordinator, at This email address is being protected from spambots.

BUNNY BURSON: Connected

Bruno David is pleased to present "Connected", an exhibition of mixed media work by Bunny Burson. This is the artist’s sixth solo exhibition with the gallery. Bunny Burson’s recent body of artwork is part of a decades-long exploration of her family history. Her fascination with scientific breakthroughs, in particular the mapping of the human genome, led her to add digital fabrication to her artwork. Burson said “I wanted to link my DNA to my ancestors’ and this sequencing led to new imagery, processes, and knowledge.”

“On our family’s bookshelves were my father’s century old German schoolbooks, brought from Berlin in 1938. It was the typeface, the paper and the German titles which sparked my interest. To re-discover and alter these books was meaningful, as reading was an important part of growing up in our family. The fragile, faded book pages in German became the perfect platform for high-tech 3D chromosomes connecting me to previous generations.”

ADRIAN GONZALEZ: Lonchando in the Grass

Bruno David is pleased to present "Lonchando in the Grass", an exhibition by Florida-based artist Adrian Gonzalez. This will be his first solo exhibition with the gallery. Adrian Gonzalez speaks and uses the hybrid language of Spanglish — a language spoken commonly in the United States — to reflect cultural interaction that underlies our contemporary moment. He uses the exchange between Spanish and English through playful yet provocative bilingual phrases, expressions, and unstructured ideas of language that are meant to communicate new thinking and describe his work. He associates the combative, improvisatory creation of words with artistic methods in his studio practice to make collage and assemblage paintings, sculptures, and prints from a variety of drawn, printed, painted, sculpted, and found elements.

CHARLES BURSON: America Dystopia America

Bruno David is pleased to present "America Dystopia America", a video work by Colorado-based artist Charles Burson. This is artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. Using appropriated contemporary images, (from newspapers, television, twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and other online sources) tumbled, fragmentized, and granulated, Charles Burson seeks to evoke the threat of America becoming that fictionalized society portrayed in grand dystopian films and novels. Burson says “The foundation for such societies is dysfunctional government, teeming, violent and desperately poor masses and an overclass of wealthy, privileged, uncaring overlords. The events, divisions, and societal conditions of America’s Trump era, Covid and until now, the Biden era, evoke the conditions of such a dystopian society. At the core of this is a collapsing national consensus in and of America, the disappearance of which promotes conflict, stagnation, deep cultural divisions and a chasm of wealth and inequality.”

Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and cable are reshaping us and our world into one in which there are multiple truths and alternative realities. They are fostered and reinforced by the personal information silos into which we are herded and shaped by our media platforms and their algorithms. The screens into which we obsessively view are depersonalizing our interactions and corrupting our capacity to empathize. They are destroying our ability to hold and share a national consensus on what America is and should be. Opinion writer Ezra Klein articulates this phenomenon, in his recent New York Times interview with the author, Richard Powers.
