Justin Sterling (b. 1992) is a visual artist based in New York. Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Sterling began his practice as a painter and sculptor. He later found interest in a broader range of mediums and received his Master’s degree in Interdisciplinary Fine Arts from Parsons. His chosen medium is the city, which he appropriates to create a poetic storytelling relationship with the urban and domestic, which in turn becomes a catalyst for social, political, and environmental discourse and activism. Sterling has shown work at San Diego Museum of Art in San Diego, CA; Foundation Francois Schneider in Wattwiller, France; MoMA PS1 in Queens, NY; 1980 Performance Space New York, NY; University of Rochester in Rochester, NY; and the Australian American Association (AAA) in New York, NY.

Caroline Garcia is an interdisciplinary artist working across performance, moving image, and installation through a hybridized aesthetic of cross-cultural movement, embodied research, and new media. Caroline has presented work at The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, The Sydney Opera House, The SHED, Smack Mellon, EFA, Recess, New York Live Arts, Lincoln Center; among others. She has been a New York Artadia Awardee, American Australian Association AUSART Fellow, Franklin Furnace Fund recipient, and an artist-in-residence at Pioneer Works, ISCP, MASS MoCA, IEA Alfred, and currently, at LMCC.
