The Luminary says
A New Use of the Self is a group exhibition responding to the complex negotiation between the personal and political self within an increasingly commercialized terrain.

In Giorgio Agamben's writings, "a new use of the self" considers the biopolitical implications of the individual after the society of the spectacle, speculating on how through an emptying of identity, transformation is again made possible. Featuring artists including Lyndon Barrois, Tom Holmes, Janez Jansa, Chelsea Knight, Sara Magenheimer and Chloe Seibert, the exhibition features forms of pseudo-portraiture that is accompanied by a parallel erasure, reenactments of the self as one object among many, and emptied out sites of transformation.

Jessica Harvey, Future Great City of the World

Can the dreams and scars of a 137 year old secret society still be seen today? While incorporating photography, sculpture, and archival material, 'Future Great City of the World' uses the 1972 unveiling of the Grand Oracle of the Veiled Prophet Society as a starting point to investigate the organization's lasting impact on the physical and cultural landscape of this city.


The Luminary's exhibitions are supported in part by the Missouri Arts Council, Regional Arts Commission and The National Endowment for the Arts with significant support provided by the Andy Warhol Foundation.
