Laurel has occupied various roles at cultural institutions over the last ten years in New York City as well as internationally, including work for Aperture Foundation, Art:21, Guggenheim Museum, Museo Tamayo, and PS1 Contemporary Art Center/MoMA. Most recently her curatorial work has tested the limits of online space as a form of public space and as a context for art and explored art’s ability to mediate pressing social questions.

Jered Sprecher is Associate Professor of Painting at the University of Tennessee. His eclectic abstractions combine distinct visual fragments and shift from one form of representation to another. Jered will have a solo exhibition at the Jeff Bailey Gallery in New York in November and a residency this spring in Marfa, Texas sponsored by the Chinati Foundation. Jered has received a John Simon Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship and has exhibited at Kinkead Contemporary in Los Angeles and Devening Projects in Chicago, among others.
