This Saturday witnesses the inaugural exhibition of Cincinnati’s newest non-commercial art space. Located in Brighton, Third Party Gallery will present Reductio Ad Absurdum, a group show offering works that investigate, critique and assess the artist’s relationships with a series of extra-aesthetic concerns surrounding the practice of art in contemporary society
. Because more alternative spaces are reportedly on the way, this exhibition marks the birth of a new phase for the Brighton Art District and the Cincinnati arts community. But it’s not enough to trumpet the arrival of yet another new gallery. We’ve been here before — and they often close too soon afterward. Cincinnati needs spaces to commit for the long term, and we need audiences to make the commitment to support them as well. The opening reception for Reductio Ad Absurdum
is Saturday at 7 p.m. Be there. Third Party Gallery is located at 2159 Central Ave.
