    MU-PSI: THE SONIC EQUIVALENT TO SCI-FI – Carla Scaletti

    .ZACK, 3224 Locust Street, St. Louis, MO 63103

    6:30pm doors / 7:30pm show $20 General Admission / $15 Students & Artists Carla Scaletti is co-founder of KYMA, music computer systems, the system of choice by sound designers and scientists world wide. Scaletti is also composer and performer of Mu-Psi: the sonic equivalent to sci-fi. Mu-psi, like sci-fi, starts with a hypothetical premise and imagines a universe in which that premise is true. Inspired by ideas like double-well potentials, friction, Huygen’s pendulum clocks, CERN, and the emergence of life from inorganic matter, the sounds are visceral, passionate, and playful. Mu-Psi is science fiction that you experience with your entire body through total immersion in the vibrational field we call sound. Mu-Psi poses questions that generate more questions, and you are invited to stick around at the end to discuss the sounds and ideas with the composer and with each other. Mu-Psi is an evening of live experimental quadraphonic electronic music where the audience is invited to listen, to ponder, to question and, at times, to help generate some of the sounds.

    Route 66

    The History Museum

    Known as the Mother Road and the Main Street of America, Route 66 plays an important role in American history and myth. But the famous road also has a story to tell about the St. Louis area and how it has changed. In Route 66: Main Street Through St. Louis we explore the local history of this world-famous highway. Come get your kicks by learning stories about the motels, custard stands, and tourist traps that could be found along the road as it passed through St. Louis. Visitors will see a number of artifacts ranging from gas pumps to roadside signs and will even get a chance to drive the road themselves.

    A Beautiful Planet

    St. Louis Science Center

    Filmmaker Toni Myers wrote and directed the 2002 IMAX documentary Space Station 3D, which was about the construction of the International Space Station. Fourteen years later she's returned to the space station for her new documentary, A Beautiful Planet. Using footage shot by astronauts and by cameras mounted on the station, Myers' new IMAX film offers a spectacular view of Earth. You'll see a lightning storm popping like camera flashes from under heavy clouds, the unblinking eye of a hurricane and the surreal sight of the aurora borealis from above. You'll also see the continents aglow with electricity in the dark, and the greenish-brownish haze of our atmosphere as the station races around the globe once every 92 minutes.

  • April 16 | 9:00AM - 2:00PM

    Imagery of Chess: St. Louis Artists

    World Chess Hall of Fame

    In 1944 Marcel Duchamp, Julien Levy and Max Ernst organized The Imagery of Chess, an exhibition of chess sets reimagined by artists and performers. Their hope was that people's vision of the chess board and pieces would be expanded beyond the then-accepted options of either the classic Staunton design or the "French" set. In 2016, the World Chess Hall of Fame exhibited some of the works from the 1944 show to acknowledge the debt owed to those artists for forever altering the look of chess. Imagery of Chess: St. Louis Artists is the new follow-up exhibit, which invites twenty local artists to have their way with the game pieces. Among those participating are Eugenia Alexander, who cites the Afrofuturism movement as a key influence on her work; fashion designer and Project Runway vet Michael Drummond; and Yuka Suga, a glass and metals artist who also works as a therapist.

    Medardo Rosso: Experiments in Light and Form

    Pulitzer Arts Foundation | 3716 Washington Blvd

    Rather than creating heroic sculptures of figures from myth or doing a lucrative business in the monumental bronzes that were popular in the late nineteenth century, Rosso's sculptures seem to be caught emerging from bronze or wax. These almost-manifesting faces and forms are incredibly responsive to light, giving his work a fluid, ephemeral nature not often associated with sculpture.

    Back for its second year, Celebrating Art for Senior Engagement takes place April 20-30 at venues across the region and handsomely responds with opportunities for senior involvement to encourage increased quality of life experiences and making St. Louis a great place to artfully age. Presented by Maturity and Its Muse, CASEfest will showcase creative work, promote arts related aging programs and feature positive images of the elderly in the community to build respect and understanding between generations at dozens of venues throughout the region. Maturity and Its Muse's mission is to promote positive, productive aging through the arts. CASEfest is the premier and only area-wide festival dedicated to the St. Louis region's older adult population. From Saint Louis Art Museum and Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis to area galleries, libraries and more, arts events, dance, music and other programs can be found for people of all abilities and interests. Intergenerational opportunities also exist.

    Imagery of Chess: St. Louis Artists

    World Chess Hall of Fame

    In 1944 Marcel Duchamp, Julien Levy and Max Ernst organized The Imagery of Chess, an exhibition of chess sets reimagined by artists and performers. Their hope was that people's vision of the chess board and pieces would be expanded beyond the then-accepted options of either the classic Staunton design or the "French" set. In 2016, the World Chess Hall of Fame exhibited some of the works from the 1944 show to acknowledge the debt owed to those artists for forever altering the look of chess. Imagery of Chess: St. Louis Artists is the new follow-up exhibit, which invites twenty local artists to have their way with the game pieces. Among those participating are Eugenia Alexander, who cites the Afrofuturism movement as a key influence on her work; fashion designer and Project Runway vet Michael Drummond; and Yuka Suga, a glass and metals artist who also works as a therapist.

    Route 66

    The History Museum

    Known as the Mother Road and the Main Street of America, Route 66 plays an important role in American history and myth. But the famous road also has a story to tell about the St. Louis area and how it has changed. In Route 66: Main Street Through St. Louis we explore the local history of this world-famous highway. Come get your kicks by learning stories about the motels, custard stands, and tourist traps that could be found along the road as it passed through St. Louis. Visitors will see a number of artifacts ranging from gas pumps to roadside signs and will even get a chance to drive the road themselves.

    A Beautiful Planet

    St. Louis Science Center

    Filmmaker Toni Myers wrote and directed the 2002 IMAX documentary Space Station 3D, which was about the construction of the International Space Station. Fourteen years later she's returned to the space station for her new documentary, A Beautiful Planet. Using footage shot by astronauts and by cameras mounted on the station, Myers' new IMAX film offers a spectacular view of Earth. You'll see a lightning storm popping like camera flashes from under heavy clouds, the unblinking eye of a hurricane and the surreal sight of the aurora borealis from above. You'll also see the continents aglow with electricity in the dark, and the greenish-brownish haze of our atmosphere as the station races around the globe once every 92 minutes.

    Medardo Rosso: Experiments in Light and Form

    Pulitzer Arts Foundation | 3716 Washington Blvd

    Rather than creating heroic sculptures of figures from myth or doing a lucrative business in the monumental bronzes that were popular in the late nineteenth century, Rosso's sculptures seem to be caught emerging from bronze or wax. These almost-manifesting faces and forms are incredibly responsive to light, giving his work a fluid, ephemeral nature not often associated with sculpture.

    Shimon Attie: Lost in Space (After Huck)

    Saint Louis Art Museum

    American artist Shimon Attie is interested in making people aware of the historical import of public spaces that appear common. In New York he projected the written memories of long-time residents of Manhattan's Lower East Side onto former tenement buildings. For Portraits of Exile, his exhibition in Copenhagen, he submerged light boxes in a canal so that the portraits of Jewish refugees whom the government shipped to safety during World War II would remind Denmark of its heroic actions to save refugees in need, and underline the current administration's malign ambivalence to refugees. Lost in Space (After Huck), his new installation for the Saint Louis Art Museum, uses sculpture, video and audio to evoke the memories of St. Louis mytho-poetic past.

    Imagery of Chess: St. Louis Artists

    World Chess Hall of Fame

    In 1944 Marcel Duchamp, Julien Levy and Max Ernst organized The Imagery of Chess, an exhibition of chess sets reimagined by artists and performers. Their hope was that people's vision of the chess board and pieces would be expanded beyond the then-accepted options of either the classic Staunton design or the "French" set. In 2016, the World Chess Hall of Fame exhibited some of the works from the 1944 show to acknowledge the debt owed to those artists for forever altering the look of chess. Imagery of Chess: St. Louis Artists is the new follow-up exhibit, which invites twenty local artists to have their way with the game pieces. Among those participating are Eugenia Alexander, who cites the Afrofuturism movement as a key influence on her work; fashion designer and Project Runway vet Michael Drummond; and Yuka Suga, a glass and metals artist who also works as a therapist.

    Shimon Attie: Lost in Space (After Huck)

    Saint Louis Art Museum

    American artist Shimon Attie is interested in making people aware of the historical import of public spaces that appear common. In New York he projected the written memories of long-time residents of Manhattan's Lower East Side onto former tenement buildings. For Portraits of Exile, his exhibition in Copenhagen, he submerged light boxes in a canal so that the portraits of Jewish refugees whom the government shipped to safety during World War II would remind Denmark of its heroic actions to save refugees in need, and underline the current administration's malign ambivalence to refugees. Lost in Space (After Huck), his new installation for the Saint Louis Art Museum, uses sculpture, video and audio to evoke the memories of St. Louis mytho-poetic past.

    Route 66

    Route 66

    The History Museum

    Known as the Mother Road and the Main Street of America, Route 66 plays an important role in American history and myth. But the famous road also has a story to tell about the St. Louis area and how it has changed. In Route 66: Main Street Through St. Louis we explore the local history of this world-famous highway. Come get your kicks by learning stories about the motels, custard stands, and tourist traps that could be found along the road as it passed through St. Louis. Visitors will see a number of artifacts ranging from gas pumps to roadside signs and will even get a chance to drive the road themselves.

    A Beautiful Planet

    St. Louis Science Center

    Filmmaker Toni Myers wrote and directed the 2002 IMAX documentary Space Station 3D, which was about the construction of the International Space Station. Fourteen years later she's returned to the space station for her new documentary, A Beautiful Planet. Using footage shot by astronauts and by cameras mounted on the station, Myers' new IMAX film offers a spectacular view of Earth. You'll see a lightning storm popping like camera flashes from under heavy clouds, the unblinking eye of a hurricane and the surreal sight of the aurora borealis from above. You'll also see the continents aglow with electricity in the dark, and the greenish-brownish haze of our atmosphere as the station races around the globe once every 92 minutes.

    Medardo Rosso: Experiments in Light and Form

    Pulitzer Arts Foundation | 3716 Washington Blvd

    Rather than creating heroic sculptures of figures from myth or doing a lucrative business in the monumental bronzes that were popular in the late nineteenth century, Rosso's sculptures seem to be caught emerging from bronze or wax. These almost-manifesting faces and forms are incredibly responsive to light, giving his work a fluid, ephemeral nature not often associated with sculpture.
