"Scenes from a Journal"
September 5 - October 3, 2015
"Scenes from a Journal" presents a collection of collages and
photographs produced by Richard Reilly since last August, when
18-year-old Mike Brown was fatally shot by police officer Darren Wilson
in Ferguson, Missouri. Chronicling the civilian protests and activist
interventions throughout the St. Louis metro area in response to Brown’s
death and subsequent police-instigated shootings throughout the
country, Reilly’s imagery processes his involvement in this passionate
and tumultuous collective outcry for justice and racial equality. While
his photographs document immediate
events as they unfold, Reilly’s collages, assembled originally in his
private journals, cull together humble street detritus, daily newspaper
clippings, and hand-scribbled notes in a ruminative attempt to negotiate
these events' complex personal and psychic aftermath. As a life-long
St. Louis resident who has continually been committed to social
activism, Reilly’s pieces reflect the longer narrative amidst which the
past year’s uprisings are situated — rendering freshly poignant their
confounding rift and resonance with the everyday.
