BRIC Biennial Artist Chloe Bass Will Be Live at Weeksville

The Book of Everyday Instruction, Chapter Five: Protect & Preserve

We are so excited to host 2016 BRIC Biennial artist Chloe Bass' "The Book of Everyday Instruction, Chapter Five: Protect & Preserve" on December 2nd.

"The Book of Everyday Instruction" is a lecture-performance describing experiences of safety in St. Louis during the summer of 2016, compiled from interviews with approximately 20 diverse St. Louis residents, and material from the artist's personal life. It includes a visual presentation of images of people in safe spaces in St. Louis, shot by the artist, in contrast with iconic images from the Civil Rights Movement and Black Lives Matter. 

Browse "The Lived City" beginning at 6pm. Bass' performance begins promptly at 7pm.
