Yoshie Sakai

Yoshie Sakai is a multimedia artist working with video, installation, sculpture and performance. Her videos and over-the-top immersive installations are centered on accessibility and nurturing human connection while critiquing capitalist productions of space and ways of being. As a subtly transgressive undercover cultural agent, she exposes the absurdities of manipulative social structures while humorously struggling and reveling in them as a participant. She draws on popular forms of entertainment and media to engage diverse audiences, especially those historically devalued, ignored, and seen as burdens.

Yoshie Sakai has exhibited work at Vincent Price Art Museum, California; John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Wisconsin; and Antenna, Louisiana, among others.

James Beckett

James Beckett’s practice explores overlooked histories concerned with industrial development and the built environment. With a focus on the physicality of historically-laden objects, his works deal with cultural signs that shape our experience in the modern era. The approach considers proximity in the experience of subjects through tertiary bodies, and the implications of their given traces. Beckett activates objects in order to unpack their abstract and metaphysical potential, often employing the absurd and uncanny to form new perspectives on formative events.

James Beckett has exhibited at the 56th Venice Biennale, Venice; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; and MAAT – Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology, Lisbon, amongst others. His work is in collections of Centre Pompidou, Paris, and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. He is the winner of Prix de Rome Art & Public Space.
