Artist

Lauren Kelley

Lauren Kelley is a storytelling employing a wry wit when surveying notions of emotional excess. Her approach to animation combines clay-mation with a collection of tan, plastic toys to stylistically evoke the children’s television programs of the artist’s youth. Her jittery, low-tech ideas take place amongst Technicolor dioramas; a plush backdrop in contrast to the flaccid storylines of a discontented cast of innocent characters.

Lauren Kelley has exhibited work at Centre Pompidou, Paris; Women and Their Work, Austin; and The Kitchen, New York, among others

Studio #305

Artist

Pamela Council

Pamela Council is a New York-based interdisciplinary artist creating fountains for Black joy. Guided by material, cultural, and metaphysical quests, Council’s practice embodies a darkly humorous and inventive Afro-Americana camp aesthetic she refers to as BLAXIDERMY. Through this lens, Council uses sculpture, architecture, writing, and performance to shed light on under-examined and under-valued narratives.

Pamela Council has exhibited work at Studio Museum in Harlem; New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York; and African American Museum in Philadelphia; among others.

Civan Özkanoğlu

Civan Özkanoğlu’s interdisciplinary work traces the everyday. He is interested in seemingly mundane stories and daily absurdities and how they converge in public space, mass media, the art world, and in the realm of politics and collective memory. His practice has increasingly moved from photography to other visual, sculptural and performative interventions that tend to the conceptual tensions within artistic production and the exhibition forms it enables.

Civan Özkanoğlu has exhibited work at SALT, Istanbul; National Academy Museum & School, New York; and Istanbul Modern, among others.
