Bios

Renae Moua (R.L. Muas) is a multidisciplinary artist, curator, educator, and academic residing on Ohlone land. Their projects are concerned with digital media, cyberspace, visual culture, and its relationship to capitalism, power, and IRL curated violence. Their art, teaching, and curatorial practice is based on an interdisciplinary approach that intersects the visual arts with critical cultural and social theory, praxis and a DIY (‘do-it-yourself’) ethic. They create experiences that encourage critical-thought and break away from western heteropatriarchal boundaries to further shape how we educate and empower our present and future generations. Find them on instagram here and their website here.

Elaine W.Ho is a co-conspirator with 展銷場 Display Distribute, a thematic inquiry, distribution service, exhibition space and sometimes shop in Kowloon, Hong Kong. This project, which began in 2013 as a documentary gesture of a distinct urban phenomenon, has unfolded as a series of investigations taking the form of interventions, audio and publishing projects, forming a flexible mode of research attesting to the ad-hoc arrangements emerging out of a particular socio-economic environment.
