America’s Mythic Time

The Luminary and civil rights law firm ArchCity Defenders, Inc. present group exhibition America’s Mythic Time, featuring American Artist, Maria Gaspar, Kahlil Robert Irving, Jordan Weber, WORK/PLAY and ephemera from a range of St. Louis-based activists and organizers including Close the Workhouse and The Bail Project.

America’s Mythic Time is an exhibition focused on the devastating impacts of racial profiling, police brutality, and mass incarceration on the poor and communities of color, as well as forms of resistance and liberation both through the legal system and within community organizing and artists’ efforts. Referencing Hortense Spillers’s notion of “mythic time” – a capture of both time and bodies that enables continued exclusion and violence – the exhibition presses the ways in which over-policing and incarceration arrives to already oppressed communities first, but also poses that forms of liberation originate within these same spaces.
