PROPOSED GUEST ARTIST NAME: Mika Rottemberg
DESCRIPTION OF ARTIST’S PRACTICE / RESEARCH - (not more than 250  words.) 

Argentina-born, New York-based artist Mika Rottenberg is devoted to a rigorous practice that combines film, architectural installation, and sculpture to explore ideas of labor and the production of value in our contemporary hyper-capitalist world. Using traditions of both cinema and sculpture, she seeks out locations around the world where specific systems of production and commerce are in place, such as a pearl factory in China, and a Calexico border town. Through the editing process, and with footage from sets built in her studio, Rottenberg connects seemingly disparate places and things to create elaborate and subversive visual narratives. By weaving fact and fiction together, she highlights the inherent beauty and absurdity of our contemporary existence. - PLEASE INCLUDE RELEVANT LINKS: https://mcachicago.org/Exhibitions/2019/Mika-Rottenberg-Easypieces/Described-Media/Cosmic-Generator

NOMINATING STUDENT'S NAME: Ariela

PROPOSED GUEST ARTIST NAME: Marisa Rubio
DESCRIPTION OF ARTIST’S PRACTICE / RESEARCH - (not more than 250  words.) 

Words that describe my current work are "nomadic" and "infiltration", regarding to the identities or heteronym by which I live and work. The method by which I operate from these identities is infiltration. My interest is to interact with different networks or dimensions into reality, through profiles designed for each case, and that this interaction is self-sustaining and independent of one another. Since 2008 I work on a project called "Teoría del quehacer actoral cotidiano para intérpretes”. It is a project in which I intend to investigate the margin of interpretation from the representation of an identity (Naranja Milano Questa) who carries out her acting career while developing her own theory about acting. She uses this theory in practice to function within the environment and interact with the arena of film, television, etc., resulting in a series of films, short films, music videos, TV programs and advertisements in which she participates. Besides the implicit reflections on her forays into the circuit of the performing arts, the content of this theory (which is still in development) is the result of his explorations and analysis on the performance limits offstage, where she creates and develops different identities or characters (such as Clara Smart, Helene Líndelen or other) that operates every day in the real world and from which she develops and builds the main themes of her theory. These characters interact with the real world so that most of them operate in a given circuit obtaining a small income.

PROPOSED GUEST ARTIST NAME: Charlie Engman 
Compositional, sculptural, performative and active, the American artist’s photographs emerge from a desire to connect to the prosaic and the everyday, juggling ideas of intimacy, 
fantasy and ­imperfection. In his latest book, hundreds of images of his mom, Kathleen McCain Engman, destabilize the idea of “mother,” lifting her from the baggage of the real

NOMINATING  STUDENT'S NAME: Shannon

PROPOSED GUEST ARTIST NAME: Virginia Lee Montgomery
Working across video, performance, sound, and sculpture, her artwork is a research practice of feminist metaphysics. It is surreal, sensorial, and symbolic. While her artwork shifts in 
subject matter from ponytails to particle accelerators, to syrups, stones, moths and machines—VLM deploys an idiosyncratic visual vocabulary of repeating gestures like drilling, 
dousing, or reaching and recursive symbols like circles, holes and spheres. Her diverse artistic movements interrogate the complex relationship between physical and psychic structures, 
the poetics of physics, and the metaphysical connection between life's material and mental realms.

PROPOSED GUEST ARTIST NAME: Jenny Odell
Jenny Odell is an Oakland-based writer, visual artist, and involuntary birdwatcher whose work often involves the rewards of close observation. On her book How to Do Nothing: Resisting the 
Attention Economy - When the technologies we use every day collapse our experiences into 24/7 availability, platforms for personal branding, and products to be monetized, nothing can be quite so 
radical as… doing nothing. Here, Jenny Odell sends up a flare from the heart of Silicon Valley, delivering an action plan to resist capitalist narratives of productivity and techno-determinism, and 
to become more meaningfully connected in the process.

NOMINATING  STUDENT'S NAME: Shannon

PROPOSED GUEST ARTIST NAME: Sophie Calle
Variously described as a conceptual artist, a photographer, a movie director, and even a detective, she has developed a practice that is instantly recognizable for its distinct narrative elements 
and frequent combination of images with text. Each of her projects can be seen as a chapter in a vast overall volume of references and echoes, in which Calle often blurs the boundaries between the 
intimate and the public, reality and fiction, art and life. Her work methodically orchestrates an unveiling of reality—her own and that of others—while allocating a controlled part of this reality 
to chance.

PROPOSED GUEST ARTIST NAME: Farah Al Qasimi
Farah Al Qasimi works with photographs, video, installation, and music. Al Qasimi’s work, which is primarily comprised of photographs taken in the United Arab Emirates and New York City, and which 
is currently being exhibited on bus shelters across the five boroughs, spins fabulism from the private pleasures of everyday life...Qasimi reminds us that every here is also an elsewhere.

NOMINATING STUDENT'S NAME: Tessel

PROPOSED GUEST ARTIST NAME: Sujata Majumdar
She has a background in Photography, Physics, and Information Technology. Her background in these different disciplines, and cultures (British, of Indian descent, residing in the Netherlands since 2001), drives her  artistic endeavour and pushes her to explore intersections to achieve hybridity. Her photography shows her fascination for forms and patterns that transcend scale, especially at the shifting boundary of nature and  man-made. Her photographic style has been deeply influenced by scientific two-dimensional representation in the form of physics diagrams and microscopy slides. Her lens-based imagery often forms the basis of deeper  interdisciplinary exploration and artistic research.
She is Head of Conceptual Photography at the Institute of Unnecessary Research and is currently taking part in a two-year exhibition programme at Cyclic Matter.
