Brian Ulrich, "Untitled Thrift (Pricer 2)"
This Friday, Brian Ulrich's Thrift
is opening at Quality Pictures. The photographs are from a chapter of Ulrich's Copia
project, which explores consumerism in American culture. When the American government responded to the tragedies of 9-11 by encouraging citizens to shop, Ulrich began the Copia
project as a direct response to what he perceived as the equation of patriotism and consumerism. The project currently features three chapters, Retail
, and Thrift
As part of the opening event, Quality Pictures is hosting a clothing drive to benefit Portland's thrift stores. They request that people bring a quality item of clothing to donate to the reception, which will feature a beer and wine tasting with food by Planet B's Modern Tastes.
