ABOUT LISA SIGAL
Lisa Sigal creates work that delineates the interiors and exteriors found in social spaces by expanding painting beyond the canvas to include walls and architectural forms. She received a MFA from Yale University and has exhibited her work in solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally, including at the 2014 International Biennial, New Orleans, LA. She has won many awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, and has also participated in several artist residencies.
ABOUT ASTRIA SUPARAK
Suparak was director and curator of the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University from 2008-2014. She curated "Keep It Slick: Infiltrating Capitalism with The Yes Men," the first solo exhibition of the internationally renowned culture-jamming group; "Whatever It Takes: Steelers Fan Collections, Rituals, and Obsessions," which explored sports fanaticism as a significant form of cultural production; and "Alien She" (currently touring), on the lasting impact of the global punk feminist movement Riot Grrrl, among other exhibitions.
