Welcome listeners to 5 Questions: A Critical Mass for the Visual Arts Podcast in which we ask 5 questions of our interviewees aimed at positioning and contextualizing their respective bodies of work within the St. Louis artworld. This episode, we’re talking with Sage Dawson.
Sage Dawson is a Saint Louis-based artist, curator, and educator. Her work examines dwelling rights, land use, and the identity of spaces. She teaches at Washington University, is a founding member of Monaco, and directs STNDRD–a gallery project examining the power and potentiality of flags as cultural objects that abstract, encapsulate, and canonize. Sage holds an MFA + Museum Studies minor from the University of New Mexico.
Sage has exhibited and lectured at various sites including the Center for Contemporary Printmaking – Norwalk, the Urban Institute for Contemporary Art, the Chicago Artists Coalition, the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, Boston University, the Saint Louis Art Museum, the City University of New York, the University of Pennsylvania, Seed Space, Pyramid Atlantic, the Springfield Art Museum, Roman Susan, the University of New Mexico Art Museum, the Terrain Biennial, Heaven Gallery, the University of Toledo Center for the Visual Arts, Munson Williams Proctor School of Art, Notre Dame University, US Mission to the African Union – Ethiopia, Xi’an Academy of Fine Arts – China, and the International Print Center New York.
