Jean Langkau will present a site-specific video installation. Langkau is an Atlanta-based multimedia artist working primarily in painting, photography, and video.
Cotton Roach is a New York-native interdisciplinary artist working in performance, fashion-sculpture and sound. Their work embodies themes of transience, fluidity, and intimacy with a focus on texture and material.
Christ Harp (Atlanta Power Exchange) is a producer and DJ. Ambient and club, ethereal and liminal.
Sloane Hilton (Wild of Night, Elysia Empyre) is a solo producer, composer and songwriter. From the ashes ofcomplete digital content erasure, picking up obliterated memories, a half improvised dream of tip-toeing synths and eager beats that blend digital and analog, house and faerie house.
Ginko is Edgar Lopez’s solo music project, incorporating costume and sculpture. Swampy and twisted, rhythmic and visual compositions.
