Titus Kaphar is an artist whose paintings, sculptures, and installations examine the history of representation by transforming its styles and mediums with formal innovations to emphasize the physicality and dimensionality of the canvas and materials themselves. Kaphar received an MFA from the Yale School of Art and is a distinguished recipient of numerous prizes and awards including a 2018 MacArthur Fellowship, a 2018 Art for Justice Fund grant, a 2016 Robert R. Rauschenberg Artist as Activist grant, and a 2015 Creative Capital grant. Kaphar’s commitment to social engagement has led him to move beyond traditional modes of artistic expression to establish NXTHVN.
Christian Curiel received his BFA from International Fine Arts College in Miami and an MFA from Yale School of Art in New Haven, CT. Inspired by magic realism, his work mixes the real and unreal aspects of dream states as reflections on Latin American cultural and literary references to ritual, the uncanny, and symbolism. Curiel is a member of the collective FeCuOp, founded in 1997 in Miami that experiments with social interactions and art. Curiel is the recipient of the Cintas Fellowship Prize and the Robert Schoelkopf Traveling fellowship from the Yale School of Art among many other prestigious awards and residencies. Curiel splits his time between New Haven, CT where he is a lecturer/professor and teaches drawing fundamentals, and Miami, FL.
