Lauren Grace Bakst
Material Study continues my research into negotiations of body and image, figure and abstraction, subject and object in a singular body. Structurally, it is a study of loops and accumulation.

Helen Simoneau
Caribou will investigate heritage, assimilation and identity to reveal how the willing erasure of the self may serve as a means of renewal and redirection.

Gaby Soto-Lemus
