An Interview with David Aaron Greenberg

In their interview, Alexandra Kosloski and David Aaron Greenberg discuss his memories with his idols and his current endeavors, including his exhibitions with the Trops Eroica Variations and Road Tripping.

"Most artists don't know their art history from anything, but that's probably why I don't know what I am. I'm an artist, a poet, singer, songwriter, visual artist, essayist. I mean, there's so many labels. In the Renaissance they just said, "You're an artist", and you were expected to do all that other stuff. Michelangelo wrote poems, Leonardo made scientific drawings and did dissections and no one said, "Don't do that".

Eroica Variations


Summer 2023

The Trops takes pride in standing behind emerging artists, whom you may not have heard of– yet– but you should, and likely soon will. By naming this survey after the Beethoven compositions we are putting forth a bold claim that these voices are heroically breaking through as a force to be reckoned with on the world stage.
