Opened by artist John Brooks in 2017, Quappi Projects is a Louisville-based art gallery featuring contemporary artists whose works are reflective of the zeitgeist. “Because we believe the highest function of art is to allow human beings to know ourselves more deeply, we are interested in exhibiting challenging, even discomforting, work as a way to explore and understand the mysteries of the human experience.”

Heustis_Headshot.jpg

Jacob Heustis uses painting, drawing, and installation to question and explore value and class systems, vanity and desire and the nature of art and aesthetics within the context of contemporary society. Heustis’ large-scale works consist of a minimal but expressive application of medium and materials often combined with self-referential phrases and appropriated pop-culture lexicon in the form of hand written text.

Since 2004 he has exhibited at Swanson Contemporary, the Green Building Gallery, Land of Tomorrow, Zephyr Gallery, Actor’s Theatre, Brown Theatre, Kentucky School of Art, Hite Art Institute, The Speed Art Museum, Cressman Center for Visual Arts, Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft, and 21C Bentonville, Durham, and Cincinnati.

Jacob Heustis’ “Beasts Will Be Still There” will have an opening reception Friday, September 20, 5-9pm, Quappi projects, 827 West Market Street, Louisville

Pinball is a feature-length documentary and fictional narrative hybrid about a teenage Iraqi immigrant figuring out his life as he straddles the two worlds and cultures he embodies—the world from which he emigrated and his current life in Louisville.

The Hadley Prize will allow Chaubal and Silverman to travel to Egypt with the local teenager featured in Pinball, where they will document the teen’s first return visit to the place he identified as home before coming to America 10 years ago.

He has worked for Mic.com, Vice News, Bon Appétit and produced music videos for James Blake and Frank Ocean. He has traveled the world directing and producing advertisements in the Middle East, Europe, and Central America. In 2012, Naveen went through Film Independent's Project Involve program. In 2015, he filmed a short documentary with Eric Garner’s family as they dealt with the aftermath of a senseless tragedy for AJ+. His recent short film "Pinball" screened at a Director's Guild showcase in Los Angeles, Syndicated Theater in Brooklyn, TIDE Festival, the Speed Art Museum, and the Kansas City Film Fest. "Pinball" the feature project, produced by Bryn Silverman, is a hybrid documentary fiction film and will paint a portrait of immigrant suburbia with Louisville as a lush backdrop.
