In her practice, Teresa Viana materializes tactile thoughts into paintings, and introduces synesthetic elements in her works through the use of thick and heavy layers of encaustic. She does so by using a method she has developed over the years, with the goal of elevating the sculptural dimension of encaustic techniques.
Teresa Viana has exhibited at A.I.R Gallery, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, University of São Paulo; and São Paulo Museum of Modern Art, among others.teresaviana.com.br

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.jessechun.com

Investigating the fragility, tension and irreversibility of history, the power of testimony, and memory in her practice, she questions traditional forms of history-making as well as cultural and gender norms.
