The St. Louis Artists' Guild presents Displacement and Migration, a national juried exhibition that investigates the current or historically forced or voluntary relocation of individuals or groups of people who no longer inhabit their place of origin. Jurors Anita Fields and Basil Kincaid selected 49 artists with work exploring the complexities of this theme today and throughout history from a personal perspective. This exhibition will feature artworks and educational programming in conversation with slavery, apartheid, war, homelessness, and diaspora motivated by culture, politics, religion, and climate. The awards presentation led by Basil Kincaid will begin at 6:30 pm with cash prizes totaling $1000.

April 8 - 30, 2017


Saturday, April 8, 2017, 6-8pm

This exhibition, juried by Allison Nance, brings together the diverse work of 20 artists from the D.C., Maryland and Virginia area in highlighting both the materials and the process. The dialogue of the show is aimed to re-establish the value and benefits associated with multi-tiered and cross discipline collaborations of artists, crafters and industrial designers. Building and constructing shared principles across these fixed boundaries has the ability to create poetic juxtapositions for cooperative projects.

Remixing originally had a precise meaning that gradually became diffused. Although precedents of remixing can be found earlier, it was the introduction of multi-track mixers that made remixing a standard practice. With each element of a song – vocals, drums, etc. – available for separate manipulation, it became possible to “re-mix” the song: change the volume of some tracks or substitute new tracks for the old. Gradually the term became more and more broad, today referring to any reworking of already existing cultural work(s); moving between

techniques; applications; historical and social as well as environmental contexts. Around the turn of the century (20tth to 21st) people started to apply the term “remix” to other media besides music: visual projects, software, literary texts.

Yet we are left with an interesting paradox: while in the realm of commercial music remixing is officially accepted, in other cultural areas it is seen as violating the copyright and therefore as stealing. So while filmmakers, visual artists, photographers, architects and Web designers routinely remix already existing works, this is not openly admitted, and no proper terms equivalent to remixing in music exist to describe these practices.  The artists explore remixing through a variety of mediums: from wood to steel, found objects to digital media.

Participating Artists: Linda Agar-Hendrix, Lynda Andrews Barry, David Alfuth, c. l. bigelow, Adam Bradley, Tory Cowles, Martin Feldman, Meiray Finn, Helen Glazer, Judith Goodman, Adam Hager, Eve Hennessa, Jon Lundak, Grant McFarland, Iris Posner, Judith Pratt, Marc Robarge, Savash Tohiti, Jenny Wu and Julie Zirlin.
