Monaco, a new artist-owned cooperative gallery located on Cherokee Street, will launch with a grand opening exhibition, Grand Prix, on Friday, December 1, from 7:00 – 10:00 pm.
Grand Prix, an exhibition featuring Monaco’s 12 founding members, will highlight a breadth of media and conceptual concerns, and point to future programming that will be steered by exhibiting artists.
Like the prestigious Grand Prix motor race held annually in the city-state Monaco, Grand Prix navigates complex terrain— here the landscape is comprised of contemporary approaches in art and design. Angle, curve, swerve—color, form, line and shape, introduce the Monaco collective community. Exhibiting artists include Amanda Bowles, Bruce Burton, Sage Dawson, Kristin Fleischmann Brewer, José Garza, Meghan Grubb, LAB:D (Lyndon Barrois Jr. + Addoley Dzegede), Allison Lacher, Gregg Louis, Cole Lu, Tim Portlock, and US English.
Monaco is an artist-owned cooperative that operates as an alternative to the traditional gallery model. Referencing one of the wealthiest states in the world—notorious as a “freeport” for art and other luxury items—the name suggests a sovereign micro-state, emphasizing the autonomy of the project, and hints at ideas of commerciality in the contemporary art world.
Monaco provides opportunities for critical inquiry and commercial potential, and supports it’s members by forging new connections and fostering community. Members include both emerging and mid-career artists, and collaborative entities as well as individuals. Its exhibits range from solo shows to curated group exhibitions.

UMSL TheatrepresentsL-vis Lives!December 1 – 3, 2017Friday & Saturday at 7:30pmSunday at 2pmFree AdmissionFROM THE POET the Chicago Tribune calls “the new voice of Chicago,” comes L-vis Lives!, a bold new collection of poetry and prose exploring the collision of race, art, and appropriation in American culture.L-vis is an imagined persona, a representation of artists who have used and misused Black music. Like so many others who gained fame and fortune from their sampling, L-vis is as much a sincere artist as he is a thief. In Kevin Coval’s poems, L-vis’ story is equal parts forgotten history, autobiography, and re-imaginings. We see shades of Elvis Presley, the Beastie Boys, and Eminem, and meet some of history’s more obscure “whiteboy” heroes and anti-heroes: legendary breakdancers, political activists, and music impresarios.A story of both artistic theft and radical invention, L-vis Lives! is a poetic novella on all of the possibilities and problems of “post-racial” American culture—where Black art is still at times only fully accepted in a white face, and every once in a while an “L-vis” comes along to step in to the void.
