Trestle Gallery 2019: A Deeper Look

For the 2019 exhibition season, Trestle will be focussing on solo exhibitions of underrepresented artists. To this end, we have invited emerging & established curators to organize solo exhibitions of an artist of their choosing at Trestle Gallery.

For many artists, this will be their first solo show in New York and we are proud to be able to support these curators and artists by offering our exhibition space. Providing a deeper look at an individual artist’s practice will allow for more nuance and subtlety than if one were to encounter these artist’s work in a group exhibition setting. It is our hope that viewers come away from attending these exhibitions with a greater clarity of insight.

Jesse Bandler Firestone (b 1992, NY) is an independent curator working between South Florida and New York. Their curatorial work looks to expand exhibition making into a collaborative practice that can bring artists, non-artists, peripheral social networks, and institutions into dialogue with one another. Firestone treats art as a nexus to open a wide range of topics and touch on issues surrounding consciousness, identity, and our fast-approaching future.

Firestone moved to New York in 2016 upon being selected as Trestle Project's Curator in Residence '16-'17, is currently pursuing their MA in Curatorial Practice at SVA, and is the assistant curator at the Miami-focused, artist-run fair Satellite Art Show. Firestone's writings have been published in Sleek Magazine, The Brooklyn Rail, and D/Railed.
