Ambreen Butt’s What is left of me addresses current political oppression and violence globally through large-scale resin installations and collage-based works. The creation of each piece is labor intensive and built upon meditative repetitive forms. Butt studied traditional Indian and Persian miniature painting at the National College of Art in Lahore and has built a unique visual language based upon that training.

Through a wide variety of media ranging from installation to performance and ceramics, Pia Camil explores themes of art history, consumerism and the Mexican urban landscape. Investigating urban ruin through interpretations of abandoned billboards, dollar stores, and iconic works of art, Camil addresses the aesthetic language of modernism and its relationship to retail and advertising.

Keer Tanchak’s site-specific exhibition embodies the idea of time travel through art history and focuses on the last two years of the artist’s studio practice. Tanchak’s approach to painting demonstrates how the medium is always operating in a web of tradition and cultural references. The exhibition serves as a metaphorical X-ray machine that exposes the building block of the language of painting: brushwork, color, and light.
