The Sheldon to Host Vita Eruhimovitz: Un/Virtual
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), April 2, 2017 - Sheldon Art Galleries will present Vita Eruhimovitz: Un/Virtual, June 2, 2017 - September 23, 2017, in the Bellwether Gallery of St. Louis Artists. Eruhimovitz uses a combination of augmented reality and video projection to explore the phenomenon of smart phone and tablet-mediated vision and our relationship to the landscape.
The exhibition is a chapter in Vita Eruhimovitz's (pronounced Ye-roo-he-mo-vich) exploration of the relationship between "Homo Technicus" (Technical Man) and environment. In her current body of work, the artist examines the merging of physical space and virtual space by focusing her attention on the mobile device as the mediator and the gateway between the two.
In the exhibit, Eruhimovitz combines augmented reality (AR) accessed by touch-screen tablets in the gallery or by personal smart phones via an app, and video projections on the gallery walls. Both the AR and the video projections deal with technology-mediated vision of one's surrounding. Free of traditional "art objects," the gallery hosts wall-based images that trigger the AR, video projections, wall drawings, and a set of everyday items manipulated to divorce them from their physicality and turn them into "virtual-physical objects."
The Sheldon is located at 3648 Washington Boulevard, Saint Louis, MO 63108 in Grand Entertainment District. For more information, call 314-533-9900.
Portals & Dimensions at Duane Reed Gallery
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), April 2, 2017 - Duane Reed Gallery will host a Portals & Dimensions, a group exhibition curated by Ethan Meyer, June 8 - August 5.
Show statement - "Present day reality offers the artist new inspirations, fears, and existential conflicts. Faced with a rapidly expanding and all encompassing technological evolution and a level of interconnectivity never before experienced in human history, the aesthetic of this show represents what I view as a Contemporary Futurist movement; informed also by the history of Maximalism and Abstract Expressionism.
The Artist is in a particularly interesting position to react and resist the nihilism that comes from abandoning our biology for a purely technocentric model of viewing reality, or to integrate and transcend the dichotomy of nature verses artificial intelligence.
APEX Collective, Francesco Lo Castro, David Fratu, Benjamin Lowder, and Greg Pettit are all on the cutting edge of this philosophical and aesthetic unfolding and discovery. Exploring and reacting to this new reality with their own visual repertoires; they are the visionaries and pioneers of our collective future."
The Duane Reed Gallery is located at 4729 McPherson Ave in the Central West End. Call 314-361-4100 for more information.

ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), April 2, 2017 - he Saint Louis Art Museum will present The Hats of Stephen Jones, a special installation of eight hats designed by one of the world's best known contemporary milliners. The hats will be installed as gallery interventions throughout the museum through Sept. 4.
A British artist, Jones came to prominence in the 1980s with avant-garde designs that also engaged closely with artistic tradition. Jones' hats have been worn by some of the world's biggest stars and fashion icons from Lady Gaga to Princess Diana. In 2009, the Victoria and Albert Museum highlighted his designs in the exhibition Hats: An Anthology by Stephen Jones.
In St. Louis, Jones-designed hats will be interspersed throughout the galleries to dialogue with specific works in the permanent collection. The installation will complement Degas, Impressionism, and the Paris Millinery Trade, the first exhibition to examine the height of the Paris hat trade, as reflected in the work of the Impressionists.
The Hats of Stephen Jones is co-curated by Simon Kelly, curator of modern and contemporary art, and Zoe Perkins, textile conservator.
Jones will discuss the inspiration for his designs and their connections to the history of hats and art at a lecture on Sunday, April 23 at 2 pm in the museum's Farrell Auditorium. The lecture will be followed by a conversation with New York-based milliner Jennifer Ouellette. Tickets are $25, or $20 for museum members. Starting April 6, tickets can be purchased at the Museum or through Metrotix, which charges a processing fee.
