Liz Glynn’s practice explores and questions historical and cultural cycles of growth and decline. In California Surrogates for the Getty (2008), Glynn makes new versions of the looted artifacts returned to Italy by the Getty Museum after it was alleged that the museum knowingly acquired them for its collection.

Justin Matherly creates sculptures made of concrete and reconfigured ambulatory equipment (walkers, crutches, shower chairs) that often recall misshapen bodies or derelict monuments. Matherly's new series of sculptures take inspiration from Juno Ludovisi, a colossal first-century marble head of the Roman goddess.

Through installations, drawings and films, Amy O’Neill draws upon American vernacular culture and folklore, foregrounding their strangeness and blurring the distinction between authenticity and kitsch.

Nadine Robinson is a conceptual artist working primarily in light and sound. Born in London to African parents, Robinson spent her childhood in Kingston, Jamaica; she later emigrated to New York. Her work is a reflection of her cultural hybridity, and the result of her critical engagement with issues of race and spirituality in contemporary life.

Michael Sailstorfer creates exhilarating images of ruin and metamorphosis by transforming everyday objects and places. An aggressive approach to materials and a sense of absurdity inform his practice, in which signifiers of ordinary urban or rural life are variously exploded and reconfigured.
