Relic: Drawings by Bridget Brewer

Relic is a solo exhibition in the HIVE gallery at The Museum of Human Achievement featuring a collection of “body monologues:” drawings and erasure poems that explore where the body physically holds memories and recurrent expressions of trauma.  Part of a larger work-in-progress that is at once performance, novel, and illuminated manuscript, Relic addresses the public and private performances of pain in both Catholic and secular settings.

Bridget Brewer is a writer, performer, and educator based in Austin, TX.  Winner of a B. Iden Payne award and recipient of fellowships from Brown University and Surel's Place, her work centralizes Catholic mythology, queer camp, and the somatic as a way of interrogating the private/public theater of devotion in its many forms.

This project will be supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
