Ro Garrido is an artist from Queens, New York, born in Lima, Peru. Ro's work grapples with themes of memory, intimacy and loss, as related to migration, history, and trauma, in an attempt to build intimate, emotional linkages as a point of entry into personal and political forms of engagement.
Angela Washko is an artist and facilitator devoted to mobilizing communities and creating new forums for discussions of feminism where they do not exist. Her practice is research-based, employing data as a storytelling tool to create prototypes for actions by others. “Misusing” software, Washko attempts to intervene on public opinion regarding proper etiquette, appropriate lifestyle choices, limited gender designations, and she is currently working on a TV show. She also hosts A CUPS, a radio show, with her bff Ann Hirsch.
A recent recipient of The Franklin Furnace Archive Grant, a Danish Arts Council Curatorial Research Grant and the Terminal Award, Washko’s practice has also been written about by Time Magazine, The Guardian (UK), ARTnews, VICE, Hyperallergic, Rhizome, the New York Times, The Creator’s Project, Digicult, Bad At Sports and more. Her projects have been exhibited nationally and internationally including shows at the Biennial of the Americas (Denver), MOD: Monitor Digital (Guadalajara, Mexico), Moving Image Art Fair (London and NYC), K11 Concepts (Shanghai, China), Interaccess (Toronto, Canada), the Rotterdam International Film Festival, ICA Boston and Momenta Art (NYC) to name a few.
