ATHICA will host a presentation and artist’s talk by Jason Thrasher in conjunction with his nearby exhibit KASHI WASHI at the ACE / FRANCISCO Gallery in Suite 1500.
In November 2023, photographer Jason Thrasher embarked on a journey to Benares, India to revisit a specific street corner where he had spent two weeks in 1998. As with any community, people he met in 1998 had aged, passed away, or relocated, but a notable number of shop owners and boatmen were still actively working and living in Benares. The term “”Kashi Washi” refers to the individuals who live and work along the riverbank in this sacred city.
ACE / FRANCISCO Gallery hours 6PM to 9PM at ACE / FRANCISCO, with a break for the Artist Talk at 7PM at ATHICA.
