I Dream of a House, a poem by André Lafon originally published in Poèmes Provinciaux, 1908, was published as a book for the zine library at Fort Gondo Compound for the Arts in 2015, Saint Louis. Curated by Katherine Simóne Reynolds at the Luminary, a selection of pages from the book were redesigned as street banners for Counterpublic.
Counterpublic is a triennial public art exhibition scaled to a neighborhood. Counterpublic 2019 brings groundbreaking contemporary art to the barbershops, bakeries, parks, and taquerias that anchor Cherokee Street and the surrounding neighborhoods of South St. Louis and act as gathering spaces for the many communities living in the area.
