Artist

Lauren Kelley

Lauren Kelley is a storyteller 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

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.
