Joshua Thaddeus Rainer

Joshua Thaddeus Rainer’s work is semi-autobiographical and deals with themes of self-awareness and self-criticism. He invites viewers to consider parallels between these personal and sometimes intimate themes and their own lives. Rainer employs inward criticism and introspection as a counterbalance to criticism of the world.

Joshua Thaddeus Rainer has exhibited work at Cranbrook Art Museum; M Contemporary Art; and Harper Gallery of Art & Interiors, all in Michigan, among others.

Studio #212


Michail Michailov

In his practice, Michail Michailov explores fundamental human questions such as: Who am I? Who are we? How do we connect? And what defines our existence? Through his drawings, videos, and performances, he delves deep into these existential concers, staging not just his own “self” but its diverse manifestations within immersive installations that often draw inspiration from the exhibition space itself. His exploration of identity spans from the minutiae of dust settled in his studio to the vast landscape he navigates as a body.

Michail Michailov has exhibited work at Belvedere Palace, Vienna; 2022 Venice Biennale, Venice; and re.riddle, San Francisco, among others.

Studio #213


Valentina Furian

Valentina Furian’s practice explores the connection between reality and fiction, pushing the boundary between this duality. Her research is focused on the existing relationship between humans and natural beings; examining the worth of the wilderness, animal and human domestication as a kind of power. As a result, her landscapes are frequently filled with non-human performativity.

Valentina Furian has exhibited work at MAXXI – National Museum of XXI Century Arts, Rome; Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin, Paris; and Fundación Proa, Buenos Aires, among others.
