Know Yourself

Know Yourself is a ghostwritten group exhibition exploring unstable circulations among authenticity and ownership.

Understand yourself, accept yourself, but don't be yourself. When one idea runs out, buy another one. When an object is exhausted, let it rest. When one's labor is performed, applaud a flawless performance.

Know Yourself features Conrad Bakker, Chris Bradley, Marianne Laury, Eva and Franco Mattes, Edra Soto, Julia Weist and other uncredited authors presenting borrowed multiples, recontextualized readymades, gouache paintings of empty stages, karaoke overtures and an attempted takeover of an artist's search results.

The Luminary's exhibitions are supported in part by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Missouri Arts Council - a state agency, Regional Arts Commission, the Arts and Education Council and our generous members and supporters.
