Navajo Textiles in the 21st Century
Feb

7:00 PM19:00

Navajo Textiles in the 21st Century

From the 19th to the 21st century, from trading posts to fine art museums and galleries, the masterworks of Navajo weaving have transcended time and space. Fourth Generation Navajo weaver, Melissa S. Cody will address how the Navajo weavings of today are much like those from the past in the ways they mirror the social and economic history of the Navajo people. Through sharing her own art practice, Cody will discuss how Navajo weaving has continued to evolve through exploration and experimentation with “lazy-line” patterns, color, and design, thereby creating new works that have surpassed the definition of “decorative arts.”

Supported in part by a gift from the Jewish Federation of St. Louis.

Rose Raft is an artist and musician residency located 40 miles North of Saint Louis off highway 55 in New Douglas, Illinois. We provide a space for creatives to make, grow, think, and connect. We are proud partners with Flood Plain Gallery. Artists are provided the opportunity to participate in a group show at Flood Plain the November following their residency.

Waveless performs at 9:30 PM

Waveless are a band from Minneapolis, Minnesota that have been touring the DIY circuit of damp basements and abandoned warehouses for the last 3 years. Starting as a fast-paced punk outfit they have shifted into something that is still dense and buzzy, yet also melodic and melancholy. The trio take notes from bands like Hüsker Dü, Sonic Youth, and the Pixies, capturing the energy and sound of the underground as they reshape it. Waveless recorded their record As One More Folded Paper Crane at Rose Raft’s studio in 2016.

Critical Conversations- Site-Specific
Oct
26
6:30 PM18:30

Critical Conversations- Site-Specific

  • Granite City Art and Design District (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Note: The conversation itself will take place at 1900 State Street, Granite City, 62040.

Much of the most important art in St. Louis is marked by a keen sense of site-specificity—attending explicitly to the social conditions that define the city and the region, engaging with the particulars of its neighborhoods and communities. The first half of the decade was arguably defined by celebrated placemaking projects and critical art-activism interventions. This summer saw a number of announcements about ambitious cultural initiatives on the horizon—the Chouteau Greenway, a new affordable artist housing initiative in Gravois Park, and the Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Public Art Challenge grant that St. Louis is a finalist for—all of which promise to use art to re-imagine and even re-shape the urban fabric. In this moment, with St. Louis poised between two intensive waves of site-specific art projects, this roundtable offers a space to consider site-specific art practice. How has work that engages the city shifted in the past decade, and why? What work is happening right now and what spaces of opportunity are emerging? How do local artists want to engage with the major projects that are coming and what independent paths are open?

Artist and curator Gavin Kroeber will provide introductory comments and facilitate a roundtable discussion.

This event coincides with G-CADD's opening of Exhibition #18. Critical Mass for the Visual Arts thanks G-CADD for collaborating, and donating concurrent use of the space for our event.

Critical Conversations is a program by Critical Mass for the Visual Arts that seeks to spark revolution in the St. Louis Artworld. We aim to strengthen vital connections between individuals, institutions, spaces and creative communities, and to set the stage for profound criticism and discussion on a wide range of topics. We inspire action through increased understanding, agency and accountability among creatives, administrators, academics and critics.

Critical Conversations- A Matter of Taste
Jun
14
7:00 PM19:00

Critical Conversations- A Matter of Taste

Critical Conversations is back with a panel featuring St. Louis artsfolk James McAnally, Jessica Baran, and Elizabeth Wolfson! These three brilliant humans, all critics/curators, will grapple with topics including the means by which we construct narratives and structures of taste, who signs off on them, and the validity of conventional arts hierarchies. Further questions to be considered: What is the role of the critic and the curator? What about streams of funding for the intellectual infrastructure through which art is understood? Who holds metaphorical purse strings? Should the tastes of a few wealthy benefactors determine what is shown and what is collected? Is there a better way? How can we ensure a more rigorous and fruitful arts ecosystem? What works, and what needs to change? Our new format will be more conversational and less formal, but will continue to build on the conversations Critical Mass is having with artists both on and off the record. See you all there!

Novel Ideas: Fishbowl

Novel Ideas: Fishbowl

Join Novel Ideas (left-bank.com/novel-ideas) for a reading group discussion of "Fishbowl" by Bradley Somer!

A goldfish named Ian is falling from the 27th-floor balcony on which his fishbowl sits. He's longed for adventure, so when the opportunity arises, he escapes from his bowl, clears the balcony railing and finds himself airborne. Plummeting toward the street below, Ian witnesses the lives of the Seville on Roxy residents. There's the handsome grad student, his girlfriend, and his mistress; the construction worker who feels trapped by a secret; the building's super who feels invisible and alone; the pregnant woman on bed rest who craves a forbidden ice cream sandwich; the shut-in for whom dirty talk, and quiche, are a way of life; and home-schooled Herman, a boy who thinks he can travel through time. Though they share time and space, they have something even more important in common: each faces a decision that will affect the course of their lives. Within the walls of the Seville are stories of love, new life, and death, of facing the ugly truth of who one has been and the beautiful truth of who one can become.Join Novel Ideas (left-bank.com/novel-ideas) for a reading group discussion of "Fishbowl" by Bradley Somer!

Peter Manion - Closing Reception & Artist Talk

Peter Manion - Closing Reception & Artist Talk

Houska Gallery presents a closing reception and artist talk by exhibiting artist Peter Manion. Enjoy new works on paper that have been added for this event while hearing the artist’s impetus for this series.

La Fragua to Vermont: Works on Paper features work by Peter Manion created during his residencies in La Fragua, Belalcazar, Spain, and the Vermont Studio Center. Needing a “flip of the switch” creatively, these experiences provided the isolation Manion needed to reemerge with a new artistic purpose. It was in La Fragua that he started to experiment with his felt and plaster sculptures - allowing him to reexamine his practice as a whole and create a new pace and vocabulary from which to work.

“These works are, in a way, a spirited approach to cataloguing my artist journey; my realization of creative freedom - freedom from a system I had placed upon myself years before. I’ve found my artistic voice, and now is the time to shout it out from this place from which I was born.”

Talk With Katherine Reynolds, Catalina Ouyang, Krista Valdez

Join us at projects+gallery for a conversation with artists Katherine Simóne Reynolds, Catalina Ouyang and Krista Valdez who are featured in our current exhibition 'Seeing Other People'.

Katherine Simóne Reynolds is a St. Louis-based photographer and performance artist. Using the Black
body and her own experiences, Reynolds works to celebrate and physicalize the emotional life by
constructing pieces that include portrait photography, video and in situ choreography.

Catalina Ouyang is a Chinese-American multidisciplinary artist who invokes mythology, oral histories,
historical motifs and popular/banal iconography as allegories for where violent inequities can be traced
and dismantled. Often drawing on fragments of female “villains,” Ouyang queers the linearity of imperial
and capitalist narratives, with the intention of reclaiming subjecthood.

Krista Valdez is a St. Louis-based photographer who uses her own body as a mediator between the
psychological self and various social environments. In a consistent search for the uncomfortable, she
situates her emotions in unfamiliar surroundings, longing to secure her own position in society.
