Onajide Shabaka is a South Florida-based artist whose “studio” occupies a metaphorical space of a walk or a hike within the built urban environment. His walking practice takes him by many unkempt edges and along undeveloped or disused lots, habitats that are often overlooked or considered “weed”-infested or “vacant.” His work comprises drawings, watercolors, photographs, video and installation as it weaves plants, people, and history in a poetic, rather than a documentary, manner.
Amalia Caputo is an artist residing in Miami, originally from Caracas, Venezuela. She is a photo and video-based artist, independent curator and art writer whose work focuses on memory, the archive, feminine identity and the study of photography itself. Amalia Caputo will install Transferences, a project for which she has photo-graphed more than 1,700 personal objects from her collection.
