Jerusalem Golf Course. Forest Park Saint Louis. April 2015

While reading about Saint Louis prior to my visit, I stumbled upon a replica of Jerusalem. This replica, reportedly the largest in the world, was constructed as part of the grandiose 1904 Saint Louis World Fair.

FLOAT is an annual, off-site, short-term gathering that utilizes innovative residency structures to create intensive points of exchange. Each year’s weeklong intensive FLOAT will have a different theme explored in conjunction with a guest artist or curator, and will always involve time spent on a river.

In-Residence: Mary Coyne

During my residency at The Luminary this April I organized a panel discussion, Curating as Practice: A Practicum, between three curators working in St. Louis. What emerged through our conversation was a mediation on the importance of community – artists, colleagues, members of the community who inspired and enable us to do what we do.

I spent my residency in a very structured, patterned way roughly akin (the more I thought about it) to how I'd ideally spend every day.
