Brandon Alvendia's installation of modified salvaged living room furniture
extracted from an interaction with a cable television production team
explores notions of displacement, authorship and functionality.
Derek Chan‚s ephemeral and fluid paintings challenge conventions of
representation and abstraction while investigating constructs of place as
tied to the self.
In an effort to bridge a gap between the past and the future, Kenyatta
Forbes explores issues of race and gender in performative video works
destabilize social archetypes.
Resulting from a collaborative process that yields serendipitous effects,
Selina Trepp‚s video installation explores absorption and desire.
