Jesse Chun

Jesse Chun’s interdisciplinary work begins with examining legal and historic documents, linguistic pedagogies, and records of cultural memory. She uses text, digital media, sound, sculpture, and publishing as ways to unlearn and re-interpret language’s relationship to bureaucracy, power, and place. Her practice considers new poetics that are rooted in diasporic and postcolonial languaging, and possibilities of untranslatability.

Jesse Chun has exhibited work at Queens Museum; Brooklyn Academy of Music; and Bronx Museum of the Arts, all New York, among others.

Tali Keren

Tali Keren is a media artist whose work investigates the formation of ideology, violence, and political identity. She often conducts research at sites and organizations that execute state power such as municipalities, political lobby groups, and churches. The materials she collects in these locations result in multi-media installation, performance, and video-based works. Since moving to the United States, Keren has become increasingly interested in looking at USA/Israel/Palestine relations through the intersection of politics, propaganda religion and military technology.

Tali Keren has exhibited work at Eyebeam, New York City; Goethe-Institut New York; and Center for Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv, among others.
