Through a Honeycomb is a group exhibition featuring a range of works about our relationship with architecture. Each work is situated in its own time and illuminates how architecture can be a governing force through surveillance,

isolation, commerce, and sustainability. While history is a major component, this exhibition also presents poetic and utilitarian solutions that overhaul existing, physical and ideological structures. For example, the welder is treated as an alchemist not just a “worker” and composting is elevated to a monumental endeavor. All together the works create a blurred space where multiple timelines converge to reflect our precarious “future-now” and push us to consider new strategies to foster a sustainable future through architecture and nature. Mission

Trestle is a 501c3 non-profit contemporary art space in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Our mission is to foster creativity and community by offering exhibition, education, and networking opportunities for contemporary artists and curators. We provide a place for creative people to focus on the development of their art and their career. Our mission is carried out through four core programs: Contemporary Exhibitions, Professional Development, Community Classes, and Residencies. Our Programs

The foundation of Trestle’s commitment to artists is our Contemporary Exhibition Program. Each season we showcase new work by a select group of artists in our two Gowanus spaces, Trestle Gallery, Trestle Projects, and our online Flat Files. Using a combination of invited exhibitions and open calls, we identify under-represented artists and offer them the opportunity to showcase their work and become part of a community. At Trestle we work to create an essential community for artists through our Professional Development Program. This program includes monthly Critiques for groups of artists to give and receive feedback about their work. It also includes Panels and Art Talks with mid-career artists and art world professionals, who share their unique career paths, offer tips and discuss relevant topics for emerging artists. Trestle’s Community Classes Program offers instruction in a wide variety of artist techniques and theories, as well as training in professional practices. This program serves a dual purpose of educating artists in new media and creating jobs for highly-trained teaching artists. The classes attract a wide range of artists from the neighborhood and help Trestle participate in the life of the local community while providing professional-level artistic instruction to a wide audience. In collaboration with Brooklyn Art Space, Trestle offers three Residencies each year. These residencies are designed to help artists and curators find a foothold in the art world while they develop their practice. The Open Studio Residency offers ten emerging artists a six-month reduced rate studio membership. The Visiting Artist Residency offers one experienced artist a free six-month studio membership. And our innovative new Curator-In-Residence Program provides one emerging curator with a free six-month office and the opportunity to gain significant experience by curating and producing 2-4 exhibitions and public programs at the Trestle Project Space. In addition to visual art exhibitions, Trestle hosts a variety of professional development opportunities and events:
- Monthly Art Talks
- Monthly Critiques
- Open Studio Residency (in partnership with Brooklyn Art Space)
- Visiting Artist Residency (in partnership with Brooklyn Art Space)
- Curator in Residence Program (in partnership with Brooklyn Art Space)

Our Story

Current Exhibition:

Limited Time Offer, solo show by Allison Kaufman

Curated by Katherine Murdock

Trestle Projects is pleased to announce our upcoming solo exhibition by recent Visiting Artist Resident, Allison Kaufman. Conjuring contradicting emotions, her work often explores the performance of gender. Limited Time Offer features three videos that reveal emotions associated with masculine expressions of fantasy perpetuated by consumerism in the automobile industry. This show implies the temporary joy and hope experienced by both the consumer and the salesman.
