School of Art
ART: William Powhida is an artist and former critic. He received his MFA from Hunter College in 2002 and currently works and lives in NYC. His confrontational drawing practice engages in institutional critique and satirical accusation of the Art World.
ART: High & Low Bureau is a curatorial duo composed of Yael Messer and Gilad Reich. Their curatorial practice is dedicated to the exploration of artistic strategies that reflect on, and suggest alternatives to, specific social-political conditions. Based in Amsterdam and Tel- Aviv, and working internationally, they are bringing together locally-focused, research-based curatorial approach with a wide theoretical and conceptual framework.
ART:Valérie Mannaerts extends the method of collage to spatial objects. She explores the physiognomic qualities of things, questioning the relation between organic and inorganic forms, the presence and autonomy of objects as well as the histories sedimented within them. Her work explores the borderline between image and object, reminiscent of surrealist and later feminist preoccupations with material and image culture, corporeality and states of consciousness.
Since the 1990s, Koenraad Dedobbeleer’s primary subject has been the relationship between making and showing and the impossibility of isolating sculptural objects from their forms of presentation and display. He has focused on the nature of the exhibition as a ‘repeat performance’, with works either resembling each other or bringing to mind the memory of previous exhibitions.
ART: A.L. Steiner was born in 1967 in Miami Florida and currently works and lives in Los Angeles. Her work includes photographic installation and collage, video, and performance. She is also a lecturer and author, a collective member of Chicks on Speed, co-curator of Ridykeulous, and co-founder/organizer of Working Artists and the Greater Economy (W.A.G.E.). Her work encompasses “queer and eco-feminist androgyny”.
