The John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Milwaukee Film, and the Oriental Theatre host a special screening of Scott Reeder’s film Moon Dust.
Following the screening there will be a conversation with Scott Reeder.
Set in a dystopian, tech-driven future, the film’s narrative focuses on the lives of employees working at Moon World, a lunar resort that has lost clientele to the now more popular destination, planet Mars. Moon World’s dwindling population is in a constant state of ennui. Employees tirelessly work to fulfill the guests’ every whim, providing services such as foot massages through holes in the floor or serenading guests with dreamy guitar ballads.
Although the film was considered finished in 2014, Reeder never felt it was completed. A new exhibition at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, B-side of the Moon, features sets from scenes that were deleted in the editing process and offers Reeder an opportunity to imagine alternative outcomes for the employees of Moon World. B-side of the Moon is part of the Arts Center’s exhibition series titled Mise-en-Scène featuring contemporary art and art installations that approach the world as a stage.

Counterpublic is a public art platform scaled to a neighborhood. Organized by The Luminary, Counterpublic 2019 will bring groundbreaking contemporary art to the barbershops, bakeries, parks, and taquerias that anchor the Cherokee Street neighborhoods of South St. Louis and act as gathering spaces for the diverse residents living in the area.

The project centers on a series of twenty-plus site-responsive commissions in venues as divergent as a tea shop, punk club, former sanctuary, Buddhist temple, Mexican panaderia, and community-organized park and basketball court.

Works will range from architectural interventions to archival community-led sessions, meal-based gatherings to dramatic public processions. Spanning three months from April 13th to July 13th, the project is meant to be a layered, nuanced neighborhood-based platform that engages the complex community organizing, conflicted politics, radical openings, and distressing developments that intertwine within Cherokee Street and its surrounding neighborhoods. Together, Counterpublic intends to advance new contexts of liberation, care, complexity, and dissent into the everyday spaces of our neighborhood through responsive commissions and intentional intersections among the many publics and counterpublics of this place.
