The Luminary presents Counterpublic, a major new public art platform set to animate the everyday spaces of Cherokee Street with expansive artist commissions, performances, processions, and public programs from April 13th to July 13th, 2019.
Counterpublic 2019 will bring groundbreaking contemporary art to the barbershops, bakeries, parks, and taquerias that anchor the Cherokee Street neighborhoods of South St. Louis. The project centers on a series of twenty-plus site-responsive commissions in venues as divergent as a tea shop, punk club, former sanctuary, Buddhist temple, Mexican panaderia, and community-organized park.
Free and open to the public. Opening April 13th, 2019 from 1pm to 11pm. Open Wed-Thursday from 12pm to 5pm; Friday-Saturday 11am to 5pm each week through July 13th.
