Dáreece Walker creates figurative paintings, drawings, and sculpture that address issues about race, identity and religion. He utilizes cardboard to create his pieces as a metaphor for the black American experience; as he considers cardboard a protest art material. For Walker, cardboard symbolizes some of the negative stereotypes associated with being a person of color.

Yasmina Haddad’s artistic practice is based on photography and sometimes extends to different media such as sculpture, sound and set design. Recent works focus on how different cultural expressions are inevitably connected and how this reciprocal impact manifests through esthetics. The subjects shown often derive from the fields of fashion and theatre, and are portrayed in stage-like situations. Somewhat artificial and glossy, isolated from their usual settings, they depict socio-cultural processes and recall the malaise of postmodern sensitivities.
Yasmina Haddad has exhibited work at Beirut Art Center; Liu Haisu Museum, Shanghai; and Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Vienna, among others.yasminahaddad.com
