Charisse Weston

Charisse Weston’s creative work emerges from deep material investigations of poetics and the autobiographical. She utilizes glass to conceptually embody both the everyday risk of anti-black violence and the precocity and malleability of blackness in the face of this violence. She deploys language and the autobiographical to examine the delicate intimacies and reticent poetics underlying black life. She reuses and re-articulates materials from past installations to formulate the next to represent meaning’s capacity to shatter.

Charisse Weston has exhibited work at the Contemporary Art Museum, Houston; Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, New York; and Praz-Delavallade Gallery, Los Angeles, among others.

Kameelah Janaan Rasheed

Kameelah Janaan Rasheed is a learner grappling with the poetics, politics, and pleasures of the unfinished: ecologies of Black living, Black textual production, Black utterances, and Black spiritualities. She creates ecosystems of iterative and provisional projects. These projects include sprawling, “architecturally-scaled” xerox-based collages; large-scale public installations; publications; prints; digital archives; lecture-performances; library interventions; poems/poetic gestures; and other forms yet to be determined.

Kameelah Janaan Rasheed has exhibited work at Brooklyn Museum; New Museum of Art, New York; and Institute of Contemporary Art – University of Pennsylvania, among others.

Artist

Sara Cwynar

Sara Cwynar works with photography, video, and book-making. Her work involves a constant archiving and re-presentation of collected visual materials. She is interested in the way that images morph, accumulate, endure and change in meaning and value over time, and the effect this has on a collective worldview.

Sara Cwynar has exhibited work at The Approach, London; Milwaukee Art Museum; MoMA PS1, New York, among others.
