Miki Leal

Miki Leal’s practice is characterized by the use of irony, distancing from conventional painting, and the questioning of “isms”. His work reflects his personal iconography and explores a range of topics including architecture, cinema, travel, jazz music, and the camp aesthetic. Over the years, he developed sculptural ceramic pieces to move his painting into three-dimensional space.

Miki Leal has exhibited work at Track 16 Gallery, Los Angeles; County Hall Gallery, London; and CAC Málaga, Spain, among others.

Artist

Conny Karlsson Lundgren

Conny Karlsson Lundgren is a visual artist based in Stockholm and Hoby Mosse. He works with film, text, image, and archival documents, to explores themes around social, political, and individual identities. In his practice, the artist employs interdisciplinary methods to present alternative realities and social agreements reimagined through experiences, contrapositions, desires, and secret codes. Karlsson Lundgren is interested in the archive as both carrier of information and a mechanism of control. He holds an MFA from Valand Academy of Fine Arts in Gothenburg, Sweden, and participated in the Studio Research Program at Van Eyck Academie in Maastricht, The Netherlands in 2014–15.

Conny Karlsson Lundgren has exhibited work at Moderna Museet Malmö; Gothenburg Art Museum; and Extra City Kunsthal, Antwerp, among others. He was recently awarded the 2020 Erna & Victor Hasselblad Foundation Research Fellowship.

Artist

James Beckett

James Beckett’s work in diverse media examines subjects of a historical nature, from the development (and subsequent demise) of European industry, to the more metaphysical aspects of dowsing and voodoo. His constructions favor an obscure and rambling logic, often within a strict formalism reflecting the mechanisms of display. A sometimes-dubious approach to his subject matter entertains the historic as suspended in a state of constant re-interpretation, a portrayal of a world where anomaly and change are fundamentals.

James Beckett has exhibited work at Belgian Pavilion of the Venice Biennale; MAAT, Lisbon; MCAD Manila – Museum of Contemporary Art and Design, among others.
