10.26.2019 | Jennifer Colten: Real Estate Row Opening Reception

October 26, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Categories: Architecture, Historical, Photography, Visual Arts


The Luminary presents a new photographic installation by Jennifer Colten exploring the histories of “Real Estate Row” in Downtown St. Louis alongside the archives of the Sauget, IL based National Building Arts Center. Join us for the project’s opening on Saturday, October 26th from 5pm to 7pm with a walking tour by architectural historian Michael Allen.

Colten’s intervention at the intersection of 7th Street and Pine includes images of artifacts from buildings that had occupied the surrounding blocks, historic scans from the National Building Arts Center archive for context of the city’s urban evolution, and other images from the National Building Art Center’s collection that are suggestive of the ongoing complexities of building and unbuilding, archiving, and narrative of place.
