Biography

 

Art404 is a collective consisting of Alyssa Davis, Micah Milner, Manny Palou, and Moises Sanabria. Their work is motivated by the rapid evolution of contemporary technologies, from machine learning algorithms and social media bots to physical hardware such as the 2016 HTC Vive virtual reality headset. ART404 plays on neutral ground, often employing such tools to create digital simulations of both familiarity and distance.

 

Lorna Ruth Galloway is a Miami-based artist who, as a point of departure, draws upon her experience of growing up near US highway one and witnessing impermanence in the sub-tropic urban landscape. The aesthetics of the American roadside have been an integral part of the formation of her visual world-view. Works in photo-based printmaking techniques, screen printing, polaroid transfers, and large tiled wheat paste installations explore space, time, nostalgia, and the mediated experience.

 

Brittni Winkler is a curator, performance artist, and yoga teacher based in New York. She completed her MFA at Florida International University in Curatorial Practice. Her exhibitions activate communities and she hopes to continue to use artwork as a medium to unite people of all backgrounds and beliefs.
