Zachary Fabri is an interdisciplinary artist that mines the intersection of his personal life and the local community, with concerns surrounding cultural commodification, gentrification, and public space. Often complicating the boundaries of studio research, site-specific performance, and social practice, Fabri has immersed himself in environments such as Target stores, the Trump Soho Hotel, and the streets of Harlem. This context specificity often yields work that includes drawing, photography, video, performance, installation, and sound art. Awards include The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award, the Franklin Furnace Fund for Performance Art, the New York Foundation for the Arts fellowship, and the Colene Brown Art Prize. Fabri’s work has been exhibited at Art in General, The Studio Museum in Harlem, El Museo del Barrio, The Walker Art Center, The Brooklyn Museum, The Barnes Foundation, Performa, the Museum of Modern Art, the Sharjah Biennial, and Pace gallery. Fabri lives and works in Brooklyn.




Arden Surdam (43) (b. 1988 New York, NY) is an American artist based in Switzerland. Working in sculpture and photography, her practice addresses material reorganizations in natural landscapes from extractivism, synthetic pollutants, and invasive species. Through this research, Surdam considers the ethical and political impacts of humans on non-human worlds. Recent exhibitions include ‘UPROOT’ in Bern, Switzerland (2022), ‘No Mad’ in Thun, Switzerland (2022); ‘Built In’ at Neutra VDL House, Los Angeles, USA (2021); ‘Ligature’ Fishers Island, US (2021); Metro Pictures, New York, USA, (2019); and NADA ‘FAIR’ with Gallery Kendra Jayne Patrick (2020). Surdam’s work will be featured in Anicka Yi’s upcoming publication “Nested Ecologies” organized by former MIT curator, Alise Upitis, and released in 2025. Next year, she will hold her first solo-show in Switzerland at Juraplatz, Biel and will be an artist-in-residence at Ars Bioartica in Helsinki, Finland.
