Julie Stavad

Julie Stavad’s sculptures and installations engage the body while creating an associated interaction with the object through dramatic shifts in scale and material contrasts. By combining various sensory modalities, the artist attempts to create an interaction in which the quiet material speaks and verbal utterances take on tangible shape. 

Julie Stavad has exhibited work at Kunsthalle Seinäjoki, Finland; O-Overgaden, Denmark; Holstebro Kunstmuseum, Denmark; and Kunsthal Aarhus, Denmark, among others.

Sarah Tortora

Sarah Tortora draws inspiration from canonical sculptures, urban infrastructure, and museum display. Her work alternates between relational warmth and misidentification, and functions parallel to language to create intuitive replicas of archetypal objects. Tortora’s work conjures the psychic displacement necessary to comprehend the cultural displacement such archetypes can induce. The artist accepts the premise that every equestrian monument is truly a Trojan horse, and questions legacies of labor across geological time.

Sarah Tortora has exhibited work at Ulterior Gallery, New York; C. Grimaldis Gallery, Baltimore; and NADA x Foreland, Catskill, among others.


Alchemyverse was founded in 2020 in New York City by artists Bicheng Liang (b. 1994, China) and Yixuan Shao (b. 1996, China/United States). As a duo, they construct visual and aural assemblages, working across disciplines of installation, print, sound, sculpture, and photography. Focusing on research and experimentation, their hybrid practice resonates with macro-environmental concerns and human dislocation of space, leading them to places such as Oahu and Moa Kea in Hawaii, the American Southwest, the Hudson Highlands, and the Chilean deserts.

Alchemyverse has exhibited work at Bishop Museum, Honolulu; The Catherine Fosnot Art Gallery and Center, New London; and Lenfest Center for the Arts, Columbia University, New York City, among others.
