Youthful Discretion, Feb. 17- Mar. 17, 2018

Flood Plain is pleased to announce its second exhibition, “Youthful Discretion,” featuring work by Dara Garcia, Theresa Moher, Marina Peng, Krista Valdez, and Rachel Youn.

Through photography, sculpture, installation, drawing and illustration, "Youthful Discretion" highlights and celebrates the creative wisdom and insight of artists at the early stage of their careers. It plays on and subverts the notion of “youthful indiscretion,” a term based on the assumption that due to their biological age, young people inherently lack knowledge and understanding of the world. At this same time as this phrase presents itself as a form of common sense grounded in the naturalized process of aging, this social construct is often mobilized to excuse the bad (and frequently illegal) behavior of those with racial, gender, economic and other forms of social privilege, while those lacking in such privileges are statistically more likely to be harshly disciplined by schools and/or the state for equivalent actions. Through the works presented in this show, “Youthful Discretion” insists on the significance and value of young(er) people’s creative exploration of their world and reflection through art on lived experience, identity, culture, and society. 

“Youthful Discretion” opens with a public reception on February 17, from 6-9pm and runs through March 17. Open hours will be held on Saturdays 12-5pm and by appointment. Viewing appointments may be scheduled by email at director@floodplaingallery.org.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:

PERMANENT COLLECTION: REAL / RADICAL / PSYCHOLOGICAL
September 8, 2017 - January 8, 2018
Bernoudy Permanent Collection Gallery
Woven throughout this chronological display of selected works from the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum’s permanent collection are the leitmotifs real, radical, and psychological, illuminating how these notions have guided artistic production from the nineteenth century to today. Real encompasses various approaches to the depiction of the visible world, both illusionistic and abstracted, as well as more subjective interpretations of a given reality. Radical involves politically driven aesthetic practices, including the rejection of autonomous art and art historical traditions, often resulting in images of both utopian and dystopian futures. Psychological comprises visualizations of the self and the internal world along with unfathomable, even volatile states of the unconscious mind and its bodily manifestations.

The installation begins with artworks from the nineteenth century, an era that witnessed radical ruptures and transformations that led to the creation of new nations and to major advances in communication, technology, and trade. In the first half of the century artists associated with Romanticism challenged Enlightenment values of empiricism, secularization, and rationality, stressing subjective individualism and emotion. Within this context landscape became a newly independent genre capable of conveying personal and often spiritual experiences. By midcentury Realism arose as a critical manifestation of certain artists’ concerns with creating a truly democratic art that would represent the material conditions of contemporary life. Both the Romantic emphasis on subjective experiences and the Realist engagement with an increasingly industrialized world informed many works of the later nineteenth century as well as the development of aesthetic modernism.

By the early twentieth century avant-garde artists focused on breaking free from history, artistic traditions, and cultural inheritances. Both propelled by and reacting against the realities of modern progress, and in response to the brutality and horror of two devastating world wars, artists experimented with revolutionary modes of expression to explore the human condition. Using inventive, often idiosyncratic visual vocabularies, they imagined new worlds, both fictional and material. Various forms of abstraction and semiabstraction emerged in such radical movements as Expressionism, Cubism, Constructivism, Surrealism, and Abstract Expressionism. Artists also revived realist idioms to voice political critiques as well as allegiances.

The 1960s and 1970s ushered in a cacophonous period in which artistic focus largely shifted away from progressive modernist paradigms and toward a postmodernist pluralism. Multidisciplinary artistic experimentation flourished. Many artists used video, photography, and performance art, rejecting grand art historical narratives to focus instead on such pressing issues as feminism and racism. Since the 1990s, with the end of the Cold War, the spread of globalization, and the emergence of the digital era, artists have employed such mediums as painting—reinventing past styles, genres, and motifs—alongside newer art forms to critically examine issues of perception and representation in a world in which the boundaries between real and virtual, local and global, and past and present are constantly being redrawn.

Not So Late Night ft. Eve L. Ewing & Hanif Abdurraqib

The Left Bank Books Foundation, Maryville Talks Books, the St. Louis Poetry Center, and UrbArts present Left Bank Books' Not So Late Night with host Cheeraz Gormon, musical guest Katarra & the SoFolkz, and special guests Eve L. Ewing and Hanif Abdurraqib!

Eve L. Ewing is a writer and scholar from Chicago. She is the author of "Electric Arches" (2017) and "When the Bell Stops Ringing: Race, History, and Discourse amid Chicago’s School Closures" (2018). Her work has been published in "Poetry," "The New York Times," "The Atlantic," and elsewhere. A sociologist of education at the University of Chicago, Ewing co-directs Crescendo Literary and is a member of the writing collective Echo Hotel.

Hanif Abdurraqib is a poet, writer, and cultural critic from Columbus, Ohio. He is the author of "The Crown Ain’t Worth Much" (2016) and "They Can’t Kill Us Until They Kill Us" (2017), and co-author of the chapbook "Vintage Sadness" (2017). A Callaloo Creative Writing Fellow, his work has been published in "The FADER," "Pitchfork," "The New Yorker," and "The New York Times." He is a member of the poetry collective Echo Hotel.

Katarra & The SoFolkz is a collaboration of Saint Louis born artists whose respective genres (from hip-hop, to soul, to jazz) are fused into one collaboration of dopeness, an abundance of soul. Along with their many friends who join them in performance (such as Phenom Famlay, the Therapeutics, and Owen Ragland and Friends), they rock the stage in their truest and purest forms of Black Girl Magic and Back Boy Joy, thus they are: SoFolkz.

St. Louis native Cheeraz Gorman is a storyteller, poet, and advertising creative, and author of "In The Midst of Loving" (2015). An apexart 2016 International Fellow, her poetry has been featured nationally and she has appeared at TEDxGatewayArch and other venues.

If It Wasn't For The Women

If It Wasn't For The Women

Join us at the Saint Louis Art Museum for our annual celebration of women in the arts as the panelists discuss how art and science have shaped their work.

This year’s If It Wasn’t for the Women panel focuses on science, shape, and self. Three local artists, Wyndi DeSouza, Eugenia Alexander, and Yusra Ali, will talk about how science has played a role in the artwork they create. 

Wyndi DeSouza utilizes photography, video, drawing, installation, books, and mail to create what she calls “abstract data.” http://bit.ly/2rGzLph

Yusra Ali curated St. Louis’ first Muslim art exhibition in April 2017 and utilizes geometric shapes commonly found in mosques to consider questions related to identity.

Eugenia Alexander is a multimedia artist who draws her inspirations from traditional African symbolism and textile design. http://bit.ly/2rDSTod

Through lines, circles, triangles, and other geometric shapes each of these extraordinary artists create works of art that harmoniously negotiate the space between art and science.

Tickets are free, but seating is limited. Advance tickets recommended. Please note that an RSVP to this Facebook event will not secure a seat.

Tickets may be reserved in person at the Museum’s Information Centers or through MetroTix at metrotix.com or 314.534.1111. All tickets reserved through MetroTix incur a service charge; the service charge is waived for tickets reserved at the Museum. Same day tickets, if available, can be obtained on-site only.

Color and Form with Eugenia Alexander

Mixed media artist Eugenia Alexander will lead a workshop inspired by Vasarely’s Alphabet Plastique. Working with a paint, markers, and paper, participants will create an ‘alphabet’ of shapes and colors that will allow for endless permutations and unique works of art. Arrive early and enjoy the exhibition Victor Vasarely: Calculated Compositions before the event!

In the 1960’s Victor Vasarely introduced his Alphabet Plastique, a grid-based system that established modular relationships between forms and colors. Each painting in this series was based on forms derived from the circle, square, and triangle. Vasarely wanted to reach out through his universal language to transmit basic human values to the general public outside of the art establishment.

*Free admission for WCHOF members. Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments are provided.

For more information or to reserve a spot please email: events@worldchesshof.org.

Connect With St. Louis

  • Regional Arts Commission of St. Louis (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Registration is now open for Connect With St. Louis, FOCUS' annual educational and networking event for young professionals! This year, we'll explore different paths to leadership - in your career, in the community and in the civic space. Learn from talented and passionate young leaders in our region who are charting their own course and making a difference, and connect with peers from across industries and sectors. Come prepared to get inspired and involved!

Tickets are free for FOCUS St. Louis members and $10 for all others. Admission includes all sessions, light appetizers, free parking and two complimentary drink tickets.

KEYNOTE CONVERSATION
Brand Me: Mastermind with Keisha Mabry
In this mastermind, branding and networking expert Keisha Mabry will lead young professionals through a 5-step process to build their brands from scratch. Attendees will brainstorm their passions, brain-dump their purposes, and leave with a customized brand statement in preparation for the civic engagement, the nonprofit involvement, and the forging my path afternoon sessions.

BREAKOUT SESSIONS
Hyper-Local Politics
We know you don't have to be mayor to make a difference, but where do you start? This panel will highlight individuals who have gotten involved in their local government committees, councils, neighborhood associations etc. to help young professionals understand how they can flex their civic muscles.

Forging Your Own Path
Nowadays, career paths are rarely linear. We will hear from trail-blazers whose winding career paths have been driven by a personal mission, and perhaps have led to self-designed opportunities to serve an unmet need.

Nonprofit Involvement: Thinking Outside The Box
Finding a meaningful opportunity to give back can be harder than you'd think. Learn from leaders who have used their strengths to create opportunities for others through nonprofit involvement in order to help young professionals understand how they can do the same.

Serious Warping of Space, Time, and Your Mind: A Sci-Fi Fantasy
Feb

7:30 PM19:30

Serious Warping of Space, Time, and Your Mind: A Sci-Fi Fantasy

This ambitious performative installation will comprise three levels of the Kerr Foundation building, connecting each level with a system of delayed media distribution. Each independent level functions as a discrete media environment, using sound, dance, video, sculpture, and light to accomplish a systematic investigation into what we perceive as time and space.
$15 General Admission, $10 Students and Artists
The event begins in “real-time”, with videographers capturing the initial performance of dance and movement. As the event progresses from the top level of the building down to the cavernous stone basement of this former bathhouse, time becomes non-linear and, in fact, reverses as events and movements reoccur, sometimes reconfigured and distorted to invoke a dream-like sense of cryptomnesia. Large video projections, multi-channel sound installations, and a fashion design / sound presentation all coalesce into a complex environment of media and architecture.

Visitors consider time in such a way that is counter to their perception and unfamiliar to their experience. Humans are forced to engage with time passing in a very specific way, on a scale that reflects our own lifespans and histories. This event exploits artistic media capable of expressing time-related characteristics that range from video transmissions traveling through space at the speed of light to a more evolutionary time-scale that brought clothing from a primitive utilitarian necessity to the important cultural artifact that is fashion today.
The following St. Louis-based artists have been selected to facilitate serious warping of space, time, and your mind:

The multi facets of Rich O’Donnell span 60 years as virtuoso percussionist, improviser, composer, designer and builder of percussion and electronic instruments, teacher and writer. He is director of the Electronic Music Studio at Washington University in St. Louis, and co-founder of HEARDing Cats Collective. He was 43 years with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, most of them as principal percussionist.
Mike Murphy (Dr. Mabuse) is a St Louis based musician, engineer, and instrument designer. He has been designing complex, voltage controlled synthesizers for over two decades. Mabuse is a multi- instrumentalist, who has performed with groups ranging widely in aesthetic and genre.
Venus Slick is a visual and audio performer who uses telepathy to fuse random sound explosions together and conjure spirits from the cosmos. Close your eyes to send her images and see what happens…
Bryan Edrmann has been an audio engineer and sound designer for nearly 40 years. He cut his teeth as a live engineer for the now legendary Mississippi River Fest in the 1970s. Erdmann’s design and installation work include systems at The Fox Theatre (St. Louis and Atlanta), Powell Hall, Sheldon Concert Hall, and more recently, Plush. He’s worked with major performers from Keith Richards and Chuck Berry to Leonard Slatkin and David Byrne. He was the house audio engineer for the famed film Hail, Hail Rock n.’ Roll. Erdmann uses his lifetime of experience in audio engineering and design to create exciting and surprising interactive sound stations.

Zlatko Ćosić is a video artist born in Banja Luka, Yugoslavia. He earned a Master of Fine Arts in Visual Art from Washington University in St. Louis and a Bachelor of Arts in Video Production and Interactive Digital Media from Webster University. Ćosić’s work spans a number of disciplines, including short films, video installations, theater projections, and live audio-visual performances. His work relates to issues of identity, immigration, and the complexities of living in unfamiliar cultural environments. Ćosić’s artwork has been shown in over forty countries, for which he has received a variety of recognition.


Chad Eivins is a visual artist whose 20 year career involves multimedia installations, experimental and documentary films. He currently has an ongoing internet project (Chizmo.tv) which explores the collective interpretation of live performance with CCTV cameras through processes of video synthesis. Born in 1975, he has lived and worked in New York City, Denver and currently resides in St. Louis.

Kevin Harris (b. 1975, Oklahoma City) lives and works in St. Louis. Working as a multimedia artist, curator, and electrical engineer, his practice seeks to create communal conditions by which to explore experimental psychology and fictitious emotions. His most recent artwork uses multi-channel audio and video synthesis to present complex sensory environments. Harris holds a B.A. in Music and M.F.A in Sculpture.

Ameli Blaser specializes in hand-knitted garments and accessories. Inspired by Scandinavian minimalism with its clean lines, layers, timeless designs, and neutral color palettes. The design process always starts with the yarn. From there interesting, and sometimes unexpected textures and patterns are knitted into wearable, three dimensional garments. Her model is Grace May with Menagerie Models.

Marcel Coleman Jr. graduated from Columbia College Chicago, where he studied Fashion Design. He is a color pusher, a kid at heart, and a lover of structure. He uses natural fibers, such as cottons & wools because of their malleability, and loves to dye fabric and create his own textiles.

Trang Nguyen focuses on reinventing classic silhouettes that transition from day to night. Nguyen spent most of her childhood years focusing on sewing garments by hand, and went on to study fashion design at Lindenwood University.

Ashley L. Tate is the founder, artistic director, and resident choreographer of Ashleyliane Dance Company (ADC). Ashley has studied dance for over 28 years. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Information Science from Texas Christian University, where she served two consecutive years as captain during her four-year stint as a member of the TCU Showgirls Dance Team. She has been an instructor for National Dance Alliance, a cast member in a Sony Dreamworks motion picture, and a bodily-kinesthetic intelligence presenter for St. Louis Area Resources for Community and Human Services (ARCHS).

Thomas Proctor started his dance career in high school, dancing with his school’s show choir. Following high school, he went to Southeast Missouri State University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art Degree with an emphasis in Dance. Through SEMO Thomas got the opportunity to work with the amazing faculty and guest artists studying Lester Horton, Jose Limon, and contemporary artists such as Larry Keigwin, Pilobolus, and Ashley Tate. Thomas is currently a Dance Educator at The Grand Center Arts Academy and teaches classes through ADC.

Recipes for Love

Caitlin Metz has curated and illustrated a collection of narratives, poems, stories and directions for different kinds of love from ten different humans. From polyamorous love, to love of food, self love, loving someone with mental illness and more. It's raw and messy, light hearted and heavy. 

Each kind of love represented is illustrated in a small book. These books will be on display, and available for purchase. Come expand the ideas you have about how and where love exists. Leave the worn trope of maiden in destress/prince charming/heartbreak/waiting/misery and come celebrate the rich complexity of community + connection we find when we release expectation, embrace duality, contradictions and the unknown.

Come meet the brilliant humans behind this project. Get a cup of tea and read their stories.

Join us on a grand tour of all the natural and more often than not, man made, disasters that have shaped the city’s intricate history.
