  • Sol Hashemi

    Sol Hashemi views his artworks as mushrooms popping up occasionally from a vast mycorrhizal web. His practice spans many niches, including foraging, woodworking, experimental product photography, stoneworking, cooking, organizing, conceptual floral design, writing, conversation, curating, brewing and the internet. Much as a network composed of fungi allows apparently isolated trees to communicate and share resources, Hashemi is interested in exploring how this relationship can exist through art. Solo exhibitions include Afterwards, What Comes Before is Different at James Harris Gallery (Seattle), Technical Support at Annarumma Gallery (Naples) and Software Update / System Build at The Henry Art Gallery (Seattle). He has also exhibited his work at Sculpture Center, the Portland Art Museum, Ditch Projects and Kunstverein Munchen. Hashemi was a founder of the art space Veronica and is a recipient of the Kayla Skinner Award from the Seattle Art Museum.

Katzoff’s lyrical and immersive large-scale murals have been featured at the Freehand Hotel and Broken Shaker (New York, NY) and Stair Galleries (Hudson, NY). He is a graduate of Bard College and is currently an MFA candidate at the University of British Columbia.

  • Natalie Purschwitz

    Natalie Purschwitz is an artist living and working on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̍əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) people. Thinking about earth – as a complexity of materials, a location, a temporal range, a perspective, an intelligence, a system within systems, a geometric configuration, an embodiment of motion and a life-supporting loam – has become the primary substance of her research. She draws from personal experience, daily practice/observation and theoretical discourse to coax out relational clusters of meaning, correspondences and visual strands to form a matrix of interconnected nodes. Purschwitz has shown her work nationally and internationally at the Vancouver Art Gallery, Polygon Gallery (North Vancouver), Plug In ICA (Winnipeg), the Japanese Canadian National Museum (Burnaby), the McMichael Canadian Art Collection (Kleingburg, ON), the Prince Takamato Gallery (Tokyo, Japan), Canada House (London, UK) and AGX Galerie (Tehran, Iran).

  • Xan Shian

    Xan Shian is an interdisciplinary artist and writer, and MFA candidate in the AHVA Department at UBC, whose practice uses the presence and absence of memory to question the corporeal tensions that manifest within her body. In this work, Xan examines how the Scottish and Gaelic folklores she grew up hearing help navigate the in-between spaces of personal, cultural and material encounter by seeking what is absent or unaccounted for. She has written for and shown works at spaces including the Polygon Gallery (Vancouver), Project Pangée (Montreal), the AHVA Gallery (UBC, Vancouver), and the Ou Gallery (Duncan). Xan makes art and lives as an uninvited guest on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
