"Misha Japanwala is a Pakistani artist and fashion designer whose work celebrates women's bodies. Her body casts, worn as sculptural garments, blur the lines between fashion and fine art, clothing and nudity, freedom and censorship. Misha's work attempts to reclaim the way women's bodies have historically been depicted in art, and subvert the male gaze and colonist beauty standards from the way we see real bodies. Misha’s work has been photographed and written about in numerous publications including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle and i-D, and she has created custom pieces for women including Cardi B, Gigi Hadid, Halsey and Joy Crookes. She was recently honoured on the Forbes Under 30 List. Her work continues to be an explorative and radical celebration of women, their agency and their bodies."

"My work revolves around issues of time, heritage, and memory and women. By combining my knowledge of literature and storytelling, I established my own language to tell the stories that have been past through oral tradition. The dialogue is between present and past and how time preserves culture. Using cartography and landscape as a starting point, I situate myself as emissary to voice concerns about land, ancestry, culture, technology and progress. My love for modern art provides a platform to find my voice and experience new levels to share millenary art forms like weaving, tapestry and landscape to create deconstructed pixelated images of today using textile as a medium."

"richard garet works with sound and visual arts. his materials emerge from ontological investigations of background noise and the decadence-and-decay of technological utilities. garet seeks to invert the normative function of background noise from unconscious status to active presence. the images and objects in his work stem from processes and experimentations applied to both outmoded and current technological media that emulate situations that translate material source into abstractions. his works embrace the objectification of the ordinary, repurposed technologies, transposition, articulation of space, nuances of perception, and extended techniques applied to time-based practice. such creations, both conceptual in origin and experimental, embody contemporary life as a filtered experience. garet emphasizes two notions from this experience that inform his work; debris from constant cultural bombardment and the experience of commodification, both being considered by garet to be sensory overload. garet finds further inspiration from observing isolated situations of everyday life and from interactions with found materials that explore further possibilities of automation, discarded utility, function-and-defunctionalization, commodity, and environment. richard garet holds an mfa from bard college, ny. recent projects include ctm festival 2020, berlin, germany; apocalypse at nicola pedana gallery, caserta, italy; four horsemen, maker fair, rome, italy; primitivo, casa hoffmann, bogota, colombia; the festival of the image, manizales, colombia; cifo grants & commissions program exhibition 2017, florida, usa; red-splice, fridman gallery, nyc; sound one, cindy rucker, nyc; periscope, zipper gallery, sao paulo, brazil; screen memory, galerie burster, berlin; midnight moment, site specific work created for the electronic billboards of times square, ny; alusiones, carmen araujo arte, hacienda de la trinidad, caracas, venezuela; meta-residue: input material, space, studio 10, ny; theorem: you simply destroy the image i always had of myself, man· contemporary, nj; adrenalina, red bull station, sau paulo, brazil; international biennial of contemporary art of cartagena de indias, cartagena, colombia; bioderivas, museo de la naturaleza y el hombre, tenerife, spain; queens international, queens museum of art, queens, new york; soundings: a contemporary score, museum of modern art, new york; extraneous to the message, julian navarro projects, ny; the spacious now and the scale of the instantaneous, studio 10, ny; 5x5 real unreal, museum of art acarigua-araure, venezuela; eac: espacio de arte contempor·neo, montevideo, uruguay; fine arts museum of montreal; san francisco museum of modern art; museum of contemporary art of barcelona (macba), barcelona, spain; art museum of puerto rico, san juan, puerto rico; and el museo del barrio, nyc. his sonic constructions have been published through sound art labels such as 23five, and-oar, non visual objects, winds measure recordings, unframed recordings, con-v, leerraum, white_line editions, obs, line imprint, and contour editions."
