Insoon Ha

Insoon Ha explores themes of power, colonialism, hybridity, and the abject. Working across several media, her work takes shape in visceral forms, producing scenes that probe and disturb. In her creative process, Ha draws upon both her personal and cultural history and the capacity for dichotomy that we all embody.

Insoon Ha has exhibited work at Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Toronto; CEPA Gallery, Buffalo; and Whanki Museum, Seoul, among others.

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.


Alchemyverse was founded in 2020 in New York City by artists Bicheng Liang (b. 1994, China) and Yixuan Shao (b. 1996, China/United States). As a duo, they construct visual and aural assemblages, working across disciplines of installation, print, sound, sculpture, and photography. Focusing on research and experimentation, their hybrid practice resonates with macro-environmental concerns and human dislocation of space, leading them to places such as Oahu and Moa Kea in Hawaii, the American Southwest, the Hudson Highlands, and the Chilean deserts.

Alchemyverse has exhibited work at Bishop Museum, Honolulu; The Catherine Fosnot Art Gallery and Center, New London; and Lenfest Center for the Arts, Columbia University, New York City, among others.
