  • Geoffrey Hendricks

    Artist

    Geoffrey Hendricks (American, 1931-2018) was a painter, performance and installation artist affiliated with the Fluxus movement beginning in the 1960s. Recognized for the extensive portrayals of skies throughout his work, he became known by the moniker “Cloudsmith,” given to him by Dick Higgins. Informed by his Quaker upbringing alongside an interest in Zen philosophy and thought, his work actively sought an integration between art and life, and questions of the material versus the transcendent and the spiritual versus the practical. Much of Hendricks’s practice was grounded in collaboration and queer kinship ties, and in the 1980s he became involved with Visual AIDS, an organization preserving the work and legacies of artists with HIV/AIDS. Over the course of his career, he taught at Rutgers University, the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and the Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts. Hendricks’s work has been shown internationally in numerous exhibitions and festivals. In 2003 he curated Critical Mass: Happenings, Fluxus, Performance, Intermedia and Rutgers University, 1958-1972 at the Mead Art Museum (Amherst) and the Mason Gross Art Galleries (Rutgers).

  • Mike MacDonald

    Artist

    Mike MacDonald (Mi’kmaq, 1941-2006) was a self-taught new media artist and gardener who lived in Nova Scotia. He linked his love for nature, Indigenous knowledge and storytelling with technology in his video and photography installations. He once said that “each of [his] shots is like a commercial for nature.” One of MacDonald’s most renowned living projects began in the early 1990s when he would embark on yearly road trips across Canada, planting butterfly gardens along the way. These gardens are tactile living examples of his devotion to and admiration of the environment.
    MacDonald’s work has been shown internationally in solo exhibitions at venues including Sacred Circle Art Gallery, Seattle; Winnipeg Art Gallery; and Vancouver Art Gallery. His work has been included in group exhibitions at the Canadian Cultural Centre, Paris; Fujinomina, Mt. Fuji; Kamloops Art Gallery; Heard Museum, Phoenix and Edmonton Art Gallery. His work was recently featured at Vtape, Toronto, in partnership with the 2022 imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival where he had previously been awarded the first Aboriginal Achievement Award for New Media in 2000.
