I am an:
Art Gallery, Art Organization
About Me:
The Luminary is a constellation of ideas and activities: a physical site that opens onto a larger cultural and conceptual space; exhibitions that move through multiple timelines, spaces and forms; music explored as a practice, presence and experience; an equipment library that redistributes tools and creates tangible means for experimentation; residencies with artists, curators and critics meant to test boundaries and continually push forward their individual and collective practice; and wide-ranging projects that critically engage emerging ideas and stretch the definition of the institution itself.
The basis of the organization is experimentation and engagement. Emerging art and ideas are at the forefront of this experimentation, but only as they interact with people: art as an individual and communal experience; call and response; exchange and change; form and reform. We propose, support and present exceptional art embedded in social and cultural contexts, viewing contemporary art as an essential expression of our time. Beyond promoting various modes of artistic exploration, The Luminary investigates its own infrastructure as an artist-run organization in order to advance the understanding of our potentialities within broader social, cultural and political frameworks, documenting these models both in practice and through publishing via Temporary Art Review. Taken together, we seek to be an institution of our time, as malleable as the work we strive to support.
