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.

Joiri Minaya

Joiri Minaya’s work is a reassertion of Self, an exercise of unlearning, decolonizing and exorcizing imposed histories, cultures and ideas. She reconciles the experiences of growing up in the Dominican Republic and navigating the United States and the Global North, using gaps, disconnections and misinterpretations as ground for creativity.

Joiri Minaya has exhibited work at Baxter St at the Camera Club of New YorkWave Hill, New York; and Centro León, Santiago, Dominican Republic, among others.

Oriane Stender

Oriane Stender’s current work is a hybrid of painting and weaving. She is drawn to weaving for conceptual, historical, aesthetic, and visceral reasons. Building structure and surface concurrently, line by line and weft by weft, is a grounding practice, one with great integral strength. Weaving is an ancient technology, the basis for many modern innovations – most notably the computer – and is still happening, from the studios of individual makers through the most complex industrial settings, and points all along the way.

Oriane Stender has exhibited work at Gallery Paule Anglim, San Francisco; Temporary Art Manto, Mantua, Italy; and Lehman College Art Gallery, New York among others.
