Place is the Place

Opening reception, sponsored by Brooklyn Brewery
November 12, 2022. 4pm – 8pm
FREE admission

Brick Aux proudly presents Place is the Place, a new solo gallery exhibition by visual artist Gregory Thrasher.

I want to agitate the viewer. In negotiating different tensions – those that exist between humans and our environment, the sacred and profane – I came to Place is the Place. Don’t ask where the place is; feeling lost and disoriented is integral. The components are thoroughly mapped but free from parameters and open to improvisation. Nothing is static; everything is in motion. The voice is sardonic without being cynical. By providing an audit of the past, present, and future, this body of work encourages alternative avenues for societal conduct while simultaneously illustrating a cautionary tale for future generations.

Special guests Soft City Printing will have copies of Gregory Thrasher’s Newports of Brooklyn available.

After party to follow at Milo’s Yard featuring an all vinyl DJ set from Edan, special drinks, pinball, and a killer yard.

Exhibition runs 11/12/2022 – 1/2/2023, gallery hours by appointment contact ryan@bricktheater.com
