Sukaina Kubba is a multidisciplinary and material-based artist whose work is strongly rooted in material and cultural research, story-telling, and drawing connections. Kubba works with industrial and packaging materials as signifiers and concrete indices, and explores traveling objects, textiles and vehicles as carriers of cross-cultural histories. She depicts rugs as peripatetic architectural components rolled and unfurled by nomads and migrants and put over sand, rocks, floors, and walls to denote a re-location.
Sukaina Kubba has exhibited work at The Next Contemporary, Toronto; Aga Khan Museum, Toronto; and Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow, among others.sukainakubba.com

Mandy Espezel is an interdisciplinary artist working with paintings and site-specific installations. Espezel’s works engage in an intersectional feminist-phenomenological discourse and investigate visceral representations of anxiety, desire, humour, and failure. She explores how intuitive processes manifest bodily knowledge, while questioning the division of the material and the conceptual and addressing the authority of a hierarchical-binary-system.
Mandy Espezel has exhibited work at Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Canada; Trükimuuseum Gallery, Estonia; and Space Gachang Gallery, South Korea, among others.mandyespezel.com
