Katherine Hubbard
2016 Workspace Resident

Katherine Hubbard uses photography, writing and performance to plumb photography’s continuing significance. Considering analog photography as a mimesis of the body, Hubbard asks how its procedures might be called upon to investigate social politics, history, and narrative. In her photographs the physical positioning of one’s body has an essential relationship to how one processes images, exploring this encounter as a time based experience. Hubbard’s writing practice forms the core of her performances, culling the malleability of vision to frame a politics of looking, bridging the imaginary with the familiar. Hubbard received her MFA in 2010 from the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College and is currently Assistant Professor of Art in the area of Photography at Carnegie Mellon University School of Art.

Lorenzo Triburgo
2019 Workspace Resident

In my art practice I consistently confront the intersections of American identity, authenticity, and photography’s critical role in framing and constructing our understanding of reality. I exploit the language/connotations of traditional studio portraiture, historical landscape, and nostalgia to flip conventional power dynamics that exist between photographer, subject, and outside viewer.

 In my recent and forthcoming projects, I explore a continuum of gender expression, rejecting the false dichotomy of “cisgender” and “transgender.” I employ my gender fluidity both in a temporal and relational sense, as an individual and as a member of a queer couple.

Marco Scozzaro
2016 Workspace Resident

Marco Scozzaro employs a photographic fiction-making process as obliquely autobiographical, fabricating, inventing, and constructing images that straddle both criticism and confession. Subverting a tantalizing advertising style of rich colors and textures with staged images that disorient, Scozzaro questions the representability of certain ideas that recur in mass media. Not merely a criticism of oversimplification in visual culture today, his images are also documents of a purposely mis-directed self-representation.

Rona Yefman
2011 Workspace Resident

As an artist coming from a male-dominated conflict zone, I was forced to seek freedom from the political, physical, and psychological constraints that defined my environment. In order to do this, I began to make work that was inspired by anarchistic movements born of creativity, rage, and the individualism of the 1980’s. I search for extreme situations and people that embody possibilities of freedom. Through various media I collaborate with individuals, and by using this intimate process, we search together for ways to awaken the body and elicit the self through the construction of different characters. As a whole, the characters that emerge in my work are an indication of something raw and authentic. My submissions are excerpts from My brother Gil and I, a project that reveals the close relationship I have with my younger brother Gil, who was the first person that I was inspired by. Fourteen years ago I began photographing him as a way to reveal our close relationship and our mutual desire to live outside of the norm. Over the last ten years I have documented the sexual crisis of my brother and myself. The work followed our relationship during this time, characterized by role-playing and the shift of identities, challenging the notion of gender roles as well as familial ones, and is a personal archaeological journey that reveals our symbiotic existence as collaborative artists.

Theresa Ganz
2010 Workspace Resident

Theresa Ganz cuts photographs of organic forms with a scalpel, creating webs of negative space and shadows on the wall. There is tension between the realism of the photographic elements and the constructed and fantastical nature of their context within the collage. Scale and focus shift throughout the composition. The photographic image, with its direct reference to reality, dictates the strange and awkward shapes that result.

Wayne Liu
2009 Workspace Resident

”Shooting in China is for me a sort of reconstruction of my childhood memories. The first five years of my life, 1979-1984, I grew up in Taiwan with paternal grandparents, and what I vaguely remember of those sights and smell, contemporary China seems to fulfill for me as a substitute. Those years of my parent’s absence may have had an effect that hence I’m often searching for a sense of solitude amidst whatever I may be photographing.“ – Wayne Liu

Zalika Azim
2018 Workspace Resident

Zalika Azim (b.1990) is a New York based artist conceptualizing her practice through photography, installation, performance, text and sound. Exploring the mechanisms of personal and collective narratives, her work investigates the ways in which memory, migration, movement and the body are negotiated within the American landscape. In considering how domestic ephemera and language become charged with intelligence beyond what is immediately apparent, Azim’s totemic juxtapositions set out to exist in a liminal state that mines spatial, temporal, and ancestral knowledges.

Azim’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including The Dean Collection, The International Center of Photography, The Maryland Institute College of Art, Welancora Gallery, Dorsky Gallery, Diego Rivera Gallery, the Instituto Superior de Arte and the African American Museum in Philadelphia. Her first solo exhibition, in case you should forget to sweep before sunset (2019) was presented with Baxter Street at The Camera Club of New York. Azim holds a BFA in Photography & Imaging from the Tisch School of the Arts, and a BA in Social and Cultural Analysis focused in Africana, Gender and Sexuality Studies from New York University.
