New Show ‘Sick Time, Sleepy Time, Crip Time: Against Capitalism’s Temporal Bullying’ Opens at The Luminary Sept. 21
The Luminary, one of St. Louis’ top independent art nonprofits, will host an opening for a brand-new show on Friday, Sept. 21 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the organization’s expansive space on Cherokee Street. Curated by acclaimed artist and curator Taraneh Fazeli and titled “Sick Time, Sleepy Time, Crip Time: Against Capitalism’s Temporal Bullying,” the show focuses on “how the body is articulated in various discourses around health,” says The Luminary’s website.
The show’s unifying concept further challenges the validity of operating within traditional structures of time—often made impossible when the body is incapacitated by one or multiple of the many types of illness and distress. Readers can learn more about Fazeli’s process and inspirations from a post about the concept on the Temporary Art Review website.
A self-designated “process-based” show, much of the work directly addresses the physical and emotional toll taken on the artists to make work while the body is compromised in some way. Participating artists include Fia Backström, Danilo Correale, Feminist Health Care Research Group (Julia Bonn/Inga Zimprich), Jen Liu, Park McArthur, Sondra Perry, Cassie Thornton, Constantina Zavitsanos and more.
After the opening reception: Friday, September 21 from 7 to 10 p.m., the show will remain free and open to the public for viewing through Nov. 8.
