Artist Profile: Tahir Karmali. Trestle Visiting Artist Resident Winter/Spring 2017 How has Trestle impacted your career? When I began at Trestle I had to produce a lot of work for the Art Africa Fair in Cape town - It was very helpful to have space and time to produce the work. I have also had the opportunity to have studio visits and with curators that I would have not usually had the space to do so. Any upcoming things you'd like to share with the Trestle network? I am happy to share that the Fair went really well in Cape Town. I will have another display of this work in Red Hook at the beginning of May. While in the space I have managed to expand and develop the work further than I thought. What are you working on now? I am working on an installation and a series of works that uses paper making as a metaphor for border creation. I use historic narratives from Colonial East Africa to discuss the role of identities on paper that encourages limitation of movement and filtration of people.

Artist Profile: Adrienne Elise Tarver, Trestle Residency Coordinator How has Trestle impacted your career?  In general I love being a part of an art community and this community has been great. Having a studio in a communal space and being a coordinator for the residency has introduced me to so many interesting artists living and working in the area. Participating in Open Studios has brought more opportunities than I ever expected.  Any upcoming things you'd like to share with the Trestle network? I currently have a show up at Victori+Mo in Bushwick and this summer I will have work in the Bronx Museum of Art Fourth AIM Biennial which will be up from mid-July through October.  What are you working on now? I’m currently working on new hanging pieces—I make paintings with caulking on wire mesh. I’m trying to work through some new ideas for those as well as a few other ideas for new work.
