Anne McGuire is a San Francisco-based video, sound and performance artist, who uses video as a confessional tool, a device to record her difficult and traumatic personal experiences for public consumption and as such, is always a presence in her videos, whether or not she’s in front of the lens. Her work has been shown as part of exhibitions and screenings at such institutions as the Tate Gallery, London, the Guggenheim Museum, New York, the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, YYZ Artists Outlet, Toronto, and the Palm Beach Institute of Contemporary Art.
Tracey Rose works with performance, film and photography to make work that addresses the complexity of gender, sexuality and racial identities, usually performing as multiple characters, allowing her to play with the ambiguity that this creates. Rose has had solo presentations in Europe, the Americas and Africa, and has been featured in major international events such as the Venice Biennale in 2001 and group exhibitions such as Africa Remix (2005), Hayward Gallery, London, Moderna Museet, Stockholm and Mori Art Museum, Tokyo. Tracey Rose: Waiting for God, the artist’s mid-career survey show, was held at the Johannesburg Art Gallery (2011) and Bildmuseet, Umeå University, Sweden, (2012). In 2014 Rose had a solo exhibition, (x), at Museo Reina Sofía, Madrid.
