Puppies Puppies (Jade Kuriki Olivo) (b. 1989) lives and works in New York. She is a conceptual, performance, and installation artist known for her contemporary re-imagining of the readymade. Recent solo exhibitions include Barbara Weiss, Berlin; What Pipeline, Detroit; and Overduin & Co., Los Angeles, Halle für Kunst, Luneberg; Remai Modern, Saskatoon; and a two-person exhibition with Eliza Douglas at Francesca Pia, Zurich. Their work was included in the 2017 Whitney Biennial, and the 9th Berlin Biennale. Bri Williams (b.1993) lives and works in New York. Williams is a sculptor and installation artist who uses found objects, often with personal associations, to evoke a potent, psychic mood. She experiments with soap molds and embedded materials that seem trapped within, unable to fully surface or articulate themselves. The works suggest dark repressed feelings and underlying violence. Solo exhibitions include Interface, Oakland; Pina, Vienna (forthcoming); and a two-person exhibition with Diamond Stingily at Ramiken, Los Angeles. William’s work has been presented in group exhibitions at Karma International, Los Angeles; Diane Rosenstein, Los Angeles; and Queer Thoughts, New York, among others. Elliot Reed is a performance artist and director based in New York. Working in real-time, Elliot creates solos, ensemble performances, and video centering on the live subject. His projects exist between people, leveraging candid interaction amongst performers and the audience. Utilizing a choreographic lens, Elliot assembles bodies, movement prompts, and narrative within the exhibition space. As viewers move through his work, the narrative arc moves through them, unfurling itself in actual time.
