Adriana Farmiga's interdisciplinary art practice presents outwardly straightforward formal arrangements of superficially familiar artifacts, images, patterns and materials. In her work, these give way to nuanced alternatives in which elements of identity, memory, and place are filtered through layers of absurdity, humor, and wit. Farmiga has been teaching at Cooper Union since 2011 and she is currently working towards participation in exhibitions at Derek Eller Gallery in the summer and at The Ukrainian Museum in the fall of 2016.
Elizabeth Jaeger (b.1988, San Francisco, lives and works in Brooklyn, NY) holds a BA from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, OR. Her sculptural works were featured in solo exhibitions at And Now, Dallas, as well as Jack Hanley Gallery, and Eli Ping Frances Perkins, both in New York. Jaeger co-founded and operates Peradam, a publishing house specializing in small-run artists' books.
