JUNE 2016 - MARCH 2017
B. 1980 San Mateo, CA. Lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Guadalupe Rosales is a visual artist whose work utilizes marginalized histories and personal experiences – memory, trauma and nostalgia. In 2015, she started the Instagram feed, Veteranas and Rucas, a digital archive that is supported mostly by users who submit their own photos of their lives from the ‘90s or earlier.
Rosales is currently artist-in- residence at PSSST. Rosales is using the residency to further develop an ongoing, living archive of 1990’s Los Angeles Chicano party crew memorabilia collected from PSSST’s surrounding neighborhood, Boyle Heights. Rosales’ goal is to represent and humanize a subculture that has previously been under-documented. Her research and archive, related programming, and exhibition in January of 2017 will activate PSSST as a site where community members and artists can contribute, reflect, and engage through historic and contemporary materials.
Carver Audain is a multi-disciplinary artist whose practice has centered around immersive environments for nearly a decade. In recent works, Audain observes and confronts the psychology of the social environments within which we are all immersed, as members of a contemporary populace. Audain's media works are the result of multiple rigorous digital signal processes and editing techniques on a variety of aural and visual stimuli. By contrast, Audain's object based works align common materials with metaphor and narrative, underscoring authorship. Recent works (2016) have been shown at Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery in Philadelphia, as well as Knockdown Center and Fridman Gallery in NYC. Audain lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
