Preview: Rusk – Photos by Julian Gilbert at Trumbull Island in Brooklyn Opens Tonight
Friday Aug. 10 is opening night at Trumbull Island Gallery, Brooklyn, of an exhibition of photos by Julian Gilbert, whose subject has been the writer Rusk in action in NYC over the past few years. Art by Rusk also on display.
Rusk has been busy here in NYC putting in work. He’s gained a lot of respect for getting up with wide coverage and for managing to successfully scale some of the most difficult spots. This show, and the accompanying zine, are a testament to his exploits. The photographer Julian Gilbert has taken great shots of Rusk climbing all sorts of structures by day and night. The risks and danger are felt in the photos in the show as well as the zine.
