Categories: Visual Arts


projects+gallery, a Saint Louis commercial art space designed to present multidisciplinary exhibitions, is pleased to announce the opening of “Seeing Other People,” a group exhibition curated by Jessica Baran that will open Thursday, April 26th, 5-8 PM and remain on view through June 9th.

“Seeing Other People” considers the rhetoric of the constructed self as it is shaped by the act of gazing or being gazed upon. By pairing three historical paintings of women by men with contemporary portraits of women predominantly by women, the exhibit takes as its point of departure the notion that both reading and authoring representational images is a form of feminist resistance.

The show will feature artwork by five emerging artists – Jess T. Dugan, Yvonne Osei, Catalina Ouyang, Katherine Simóne Reynolds and Krista Valdez – alongside Genieve Figgis, Ayana V. Jackson, Joe Jones, Aïda Ruilova, Cindy Sherman, Bert Stern, Mickalene Thomas, Édouard Vuillard and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.
