"Hopinka’s work transports us to a time when narratives would pique the curiosity and take us to a world where the imagination roamed free, where the possibilities were endless, a time when the present, past, and future were stories waiting to be told by those like himself, who possessed the talent to captivate those who dared to see and listen." - Shanel Thompson, Musée Magazine
"With "Silverfish" Rone Shavers establishes himself as an important figure in the genre space; he understands that the greatest value in speculative fiction is its ability to reveal the contemporary, even while it sets itself in different times and spaces." - Matt Holden, Strange Horizons
“Young’s music resides somewhere at the intersection of smart, whimsical, thought-provoking, strange, and new. It manages to tackle social issues and scientific questions while introducing innovative sounds seemingly for the pure joy of it. And with its focus more on sound rather than traditional melody and harmonic structure” - Matt Kufchak, Sightlines

Helina Metaferia links personal histories of Black womanhood with larger legacies of social justice through collage, photography, and video. Her work embodies and shifts the feminist mantra of the personal is political to the intimate is political. “I was attracted to research and collage because of the healing that it has done for my own grieving legacies, but also for its ability to cure social diseases like racism, sexism, classism, and patriarchy,” Metaferia said in an interview with Artsy.
"The artist subverts traditional understandings of light and color in order to establish his relationship to the universe, his body in the cosmos and the world he cannot see, and the instinctive gesture of mapping one’s presence in relation to the stars. Gumby investigates the energy of chromatic perception through its universal origins — the cosmos and geology — relating astrological mapping, the geological formation of the earth, and the power of gemstones, to the process of abstract painting." - XIBT Contemporary Art Magazine
writer / curator
“I’ve always been committed to working in a manner that is culturally responsive to our times and utilizes contemporary art as a tool to heighten our awareness and understanding not only about the world around us but also ourselves.” - Larry Ossei-Mensah

composer / pianist
“History and style place her among the post-minimalists who use repetitive means and classic, tonal harmonies. But while many of her peers are self-consciously chasing after hipster-pop relevance, Mazzoli is composing substantial pieces that can appeal to those listeners without pandering to them. Her work is clear and uncompromising, and even when it is not at its best, she never plays to the crowd.”- George Grella, New York Classical Review
playwright / dramaturg / director / cultural worker
“As both a playwright and a new play development dramaturg, the cultivation of new work and unique and diverse voices has been central to my artistic practice for 18 years.” - Addae Moon
“Rucker’s installations, videos, sculpture, and performances encourage the viewer to integrate facts, statistics, and historical narratives in meaningful and unforgettable ways, but at their own pace and through a variety of channels.” – Cara Ober, BmoreArt
