Petra Floyd uses drawing, sculpture, writing, printmaking, and performance to meditate on Blackness in the United States and other sites of the African diaspora, focusing on reinvention through inherited and appropriated material culture and performance.

The grant will be used to develop a new body of visual art that explores global ecology by transforming images of classical and sublime landscapes.
Marianne Hoffmeister Castro’s work focuses on the role of language and fiction in the representation of nature and nonhuman beings. Mostly working with video installations, drawing, and text-based processes, she creates scenarios where estrangement and entanglement between human and nonhuman beings become evident.
Matthew McGaughey’s work explores heteronormative masculinities and their hegemonic tendencies through the lens of personal history, media tropes, and dominant cultural practices. Using performance, video, narrative structures, and sound, his work creates scenarios of bifurcation and reconnection in order to reveal the unconscious social forces that inform dominant identities.
