Working across the mediums of painting, sculpture, performance, and photography, Joiri Minaya navigates landscapes between the global north and south, to engage with themes around the body, domesticity, and gender roles into a site of unlearning and decolonizing larger institutional systems.
With a career that spans over three decades, Michelle Segre is known largely for an improvisational form of sculpture. Her works, often created with such materials as yarn, paint, metal, and thread, represent a meeting of both accident and intent.
Kambui Olujimi is a multidisciplinary artist who grew up in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood in Brooklyn. His work has included large-scale sculpture, painting, installation, photography, video, and performance. Olujimi is equally influenced by and often combines such abstract, scientific realms as cosmology, multiverses, physics, and quantum forces with the intimacy of mundane objects like vernacular photographs and hand-me down furniture.
Erwin Redl creates outdoor public installations through the repetition of light, movement, and color. His work is inspired by his upbringing in the Austrian countryside as well by such pioneering land artists of the American West as Walter De Maria and Nancy Holt, Redl is renewing and updating the land art tradition of transforming urban landscapes into works of art.
Nate Lewis is interested in excising invisible histories. He approaches his art through the diagnostic lenses of his former practice working as a critical care nurse for the last nine years. The artist uses repetition, patterns, and textures to mold his work across the different mediums he works in, which include cut paper as well as video and audio.
