Laura Hudspith’s interdisciplinary work explores the relationship between chronic illness and feminist action. With a focus in autotheoretical methodologies, her work positions practice, performance, and product as indistinguishable elements that are equally personal and political in nature. Casting and capturing pieces of herself in poetic texts, sculpture and lens-based work, Hudspith enacts rituals of self-imposed objectification where the asomatous is somatically shed and agency reclaimed.

Jessica Fuquay’s multidisciplinary work explores the role of mass media, performance, and other dominant cultural forms in the construction of political subjectivity. Her practice, often drawing from her perspective as a first-generation Colombian-American, is concerned with conflict, power, and systems of domination that reproduce and designate otherness.
