ektor garcia is multidisciplinary artist who approaches sculptural installation through wide-ranging experiments with craft techniques and materials. Throughout his practice, he develops a lexicon of crochet, weaving and fibre-work, including the use of ceramic, metal, leatherwork, found materials, and the principles of assemblage and social sculpture. Garcia is in constant pursuit of modes of making and presentation that trouble the division between so-called high and low culture.
ektor garcia has exhibited work at Art Basel, Switzerland and kurimanzutto, Mexico City, among others.

Martha Skou is an interdisciplinary artist who moves freely between audible and visual worlds. Both analytical and experimental, her work toys with opposites in color, shape and/or sound. She has created personal universes surrounding her work both in her collaborations and solo projects. Her language is abstract and atmospheric, with compositions in spatial formats as well as two-dimensional media.
Martha Skou has exhibited her work at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York; Telfair Museums, Savannah; and Pioneer Works, New York, among others.marthaskou.com

Joshua Liebowitz is interested in socio-technical absurdity as a measure of the contemporary condition. He combines computational objects, research acts, and physical materials into assemblages that unsettle the technological gaze produced by hidden media infrastructures and labor practices. Documenting these inherited subjectivities, Liebowitz tries to provide situations where preconfigured identity and experiences of exhaustion, vulnerability and confusion can be rethought in terms of expression and autonomy.
