Shahpour Pouyan

In his practice Shahpour Pouyan explores power, domination, and possession through culture. He transforms political issues into a monument of poetic and visual form. The repetition of mistakes and errors is one of his main concerns, and he reflects this by bringing historical aesthetics and mediums to his art practice. He grapples with materials provided from the political world and historic documents; the poetic qualities of power and the human condition inspire him.

Shahpour Pouyan has exhibited work at Yinchuan Museum of Contemporary Art, China; Grey Art Gallery, New York University; and The Rubin Museum of Art, New York, among others.

Alison Nguyen

Alison Nguyen’s work explores the ways in which images are produced, disseminated, and consumed within the current media landscape, exposing the socio-political conditions from which they arise. Creating strategies for dissent, she re-articulates mainstream cinematic language in unsettlingly seductive installation, video, and sculptural works that generate a self-aware gaze within which the viewer becomes both producer and consumer of their own spectacle.

Alison Nguyen received her B.A. from Brown University. She has presented work at Ann Arbor Film Festival; CROSSROADS presented by San Francisco Cinematheque and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Channels Festival International Biennial of Video Art, Melbourne; Microscope Gallery, New York and AC Gallery, Beijing, among others. Nguyen has participated in residencies and/or been awarded fellowships from The Institute of Electronic Arts, Squeaky Wheel Film and Media Art Center, and BRIC. She has been awarded grants from NYSCA and The New York Community Trust. In 2018, Nguyen was featured in Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces of Independent Film.
