ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Marisa Morán Jahn
Marisa Morán Jahn’s artworks redistribute power, “exemplifying the possibilities of art as social practice” (ArtForum). Of Ecuadorian and Chinese descent, Jahn is the founder of Studio REV-, an art, media, and social justice non-profit. She teaches courses on the art of extimacy, bootlegs, and daemons at MIT (her alma mater), The New School, and Columbia University.
Stacey Kirby is a queer artist and self-appointed civil servant from North Carolina. Fueled by the current political climate and ethnographic research, her work addresses issues of identity, citizenship and civil rights through performative interactions in alternative, private, and public spaces.
Stacy Lynn Waddell
Based in Durham, Stacy Lynn Waddell creates works that structure sites of intersection between both real and imagined aspects of history and culture that pose important questions related to authorship, beauty, and the persuasive power of nationalistic ideology.
