Brett Amory | This Land Is Not For Sale: Forgotten, Past and Foreseeable Futures
Brett Amory continues to develop his Waiting series in This Land Is Not For Sale: Forgotten, Past and Foreseeable Futures, his third solo show at the gallery that explores the gentrification of New York City’s Lower East Side. In this new body of work Amory offers viewers an insider’s historical road map of the East Village, from ABC NO RIO and The Nuyorican Poets Cafe to the headquarters of The Catholic Worker and Moshe’s Bakery. In works on canvas, as well as a site-specific installation, he captures the breathtaking physical presence of these neighborhood landmarks and movingly conveys the sense of the artist as witness. Watch the video below to learn more about Amory’s artistic process and his views on the ever-changing neighborhood.
