We are excited to announce our initial 2018 exhibitions: Mane ?n Tail, curated by Katherine Simóne Reynolds, and Secret Florida, a solo show with Chicago-based artist Eileen Rae Walsh, opening January 19th.

Mane ?n Tail
One can argue that the beauty supply, as its own unique ecosystem, is one of the first ?art stores? young Black women encounter: creativity oozes from these spaces. Your ego is the canvas and the materials are bundles, BoBos, and Blue Magic...

Mane ?n Tail is an exhibition curated by Katherine Simóne Reynolds that investigates the intersectionality of this beauty exchange: How the Beauty Supply manipulates the way women of color feel about themselves, as well as the relationship between the purchasers of beauty and the people and spaces that supply it.

Participating artists include LaKela Brown, Pamela Council, Baseera Khan, Abigail Lucien, Narcissister, Yvonne Osei, Katherine Simóne Reynolds, SHENEQUA, Diamond Stingily, and Rachel Youn.

Secret Florida
The smack of wet palms thrashing in tropical winds, I?m wondering if it was as sexy as I remember. How is it that flowers always seem drenched, more like flowers than other flowers? When peeling an orange, the gulls are squawking. Is there more anticipation when humid? The image more like eruption, less like fossil. It is fixation, a constant squint in bright blinding hot toned sun and dense shade.

Opening in the entry gallery is Secret Florida, a solo exhibition by Chicago-based artist Eileen Rae Walsh, presented in collaboration with ACRE.

The Luminary's exhibitions are supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Regional Arts Commission, the Missouri Arts Council - a state agency, the Arts and Education Council, and Urban Chestnut.
