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. This free exhibition will be on view through February 20, 2022.

In conjunction with the 200th anniversary of Missouri’s statehood, Art Along the Rivers: A Bicentennial Celebration explores the remarkable artwork produced and collected over 1,000 years in the region surrounding St. Louis. The exhibition presents more than 150 objects from Missouri as far north as Hannibal, west to Hermann, and south through the Old Mines area.

Advanced tickets recommended.

It Is Magic by Mickle Maher is a sorrowful and hilarious meditation on the deep, ancient evil at the heart of the community theatre audition process, and an investigation into the mysteries of theatre-making itself.  Two sisters, community theatre veterans who’ve never had the chance to contribute artistically, are holding auditions for their adult version of The Three Little Pigs in the theatre basement, while the group’s pretentious artistic director is attending, then avoiding, opening night of his MacBeth on the MainStage above.  A third sister appears, and reality becomes really magical at the local playhouse.  Directed by Suki Peters, the cast includes Nicole Angeli, Michelle Hand, Joe Hanrahan, Carl Overly Jr. and Chrissie Watkins.

Art Saint Louis announces our early Fall 2021 virtual gallery exhibition: “Humanity,” featuring original artworks by 33 St. Louis regional artists on view exclusively online from October 1 through December 1, 2021.

“Humanity” is a multi-media juried visual art exhibition featuring 46 original artworks that explore the range of human experience, including (but not limited to): identity, the life force, cycles of life such as birth, childhood, youth, schooling, life partnership, careers, old age, death, and more. The range of themes and sub-themes included in this show display some of the most important aspects of being a human and one's experiences throughout life. Enjoying simple moments with friends, remembering the joy of childhood, and contemplating imminent death or recalling past loss is all emphasized in bold and emotionally striking artistic techniques.

A juried exhibit, “Humanity” was open to St. Louis regional artists age 21+ who live within 200 miles of St. Louis. Featured are works in 46 artworks by 33 STL regional artists working in a variety of media, including collage, drawing (colored pencil, graphite, pastel), mixed media, painting (acrylic, oil, watercolor), and photography (analog and digital).

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.

As anthropologists, Alyssa James and Brendane Tynes are especially adept at conducting interviews. The medium of the interview, however, is fraught with the colonial histories of knowledge extraction, and always troubled by the uneven power dynamics implicit in the interviewer-interviewee relationship. How then might the interview be transformed from a tool of knowledge gathering into a moment of co-experience and community-building? How might researchers, journalists, activists, public servants, and community-members conduct interviews which are not only productive and informative, but also generative and reciprocal? How can the sharing of information be made also to become a radical act of care?

This 2-hour virtual workshop will define and complicate our notions of "care" by focusing on Black feminist practices of interviewing. Together, we will model novel approaches to interviewing and offer practices of care that align with the themes of homemaking and community-building.
