- Howard el-Yasin‘s ongoing investigation of detritus interweaves the process of collecting with spatial installation.

- Kirk Daniel Palmer‘s body of work combines found objects and paintings to reclaim a sense of static space in the face of contemporary information consumption.
- Georgeann Schellenger’s textiles are imbued with social and personal histories that can speak directly to unequivocal other-ing.
