Project 1612 invited Josh Roach, a multidisciplinary artist/maker currently based out of Bloomington-Normal, Illinois. His practice is focused around the characters that he becomes through the wearing of hand-made costumes, and the subsequent actions that he performs with objects and other creatures in both constructed and real-world spaces. Recently, this has mostly been through either live performance or video work. Josh is currently pursuing his MFA degree in Sculpture & Expanded Media at Illinois State University. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Manitoba in his hometown of Winnipeg, Canada.
Lease Agreement invited Liz Rodda, an Austin-based artist and Associate Professor in the School of Art & Design at Texas State University. Recently her work has been included in screenings and exhibitions at institutions such as Museo de Arte Moderno de Medellín, Colombia; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami, FL; Vox Populi, Philadelphia, PA; and the Anthology Film Archives, New York, NY.
