Join us on Friday, March 13th from 6 to 8pm and Saturday, March 14th from 12 to 6pm for the opening of Counterpublic.

Opening over the course of two days, Counterpublic is an expansive exhibition that commissions artists to create a series of projects that engage a different conception of cultural space, with a particular emphasis on the charged dynamics in St. Louis and, more specifically, in our own neighborhood. The exhibition will open simultaneously at The Luminary and at various locations throughout the Cherokee Street neighborhood featuring work from Alberto Aguilar, Damon Davis, EDELO, Lucky Pierre, Dread Scott, Sean Starowitz, and Work/Play.
Counterpublic addresses the complex publics that make up a community, presenting artists and artworks that speak unevenly across space, aiming for a form of public art that folds into the vibrancy of daily life and responds to the pressing issues of our city and of our time.
Projects include:
Alberto Aguilar at El Torito & The Luminary
Damon Davis at The Luminary
EDELO at multiple locations
Lucky Pierre at Black Bear Bakery
Dread Scott at multiple locations
Sean Starowitz at Gooolll
Work/Play at Sweet Shears
Schedule: Opening Reception: March 13th from 6 to 8pm Guided Tours: March 14th at 1pm and 5pm Performance by Alberto Aguilar: March 14th at 3pm Final Meals Communal Dinner with Lucky Pierre: March 14th at 7pm at Black Bear Bakery
