TALIA CHETRIT: ARTIST   

The simplicity of New York–based photographer Talia Chetrit’s images belies their density of allusion. Her subjects are details cropped from the human body, inanimate forms, and combinations of the two—all of which she arranges into formally interrelated series. “Recently I’ve been looking back at the first few rolls I shot when I was 13 and reprinting them, mostly pictures of my family and self-portraits I took using the self-timer. I had no context in mind, and now, eighteen years later, I’m drawn to that looseness, returning to it in my new work.

FATIMA AL-QADIRI: ARTIST AND MUSICIAN

The work of Kuwaiti artist and composer Fatima Al-Qadiri, who lives in New York in part because she considers it “the furthest acceptable distance from Kuwait,” offers contemporary perspective on a globalizing Arab world. Her most recent commission was a soundtrack for the 2013 Art Dubai fair that meditates on the notion of being “official,” in the context of the fair as well as in the greater context of the Emirates. “I used to view visual art and music as separate, but more and more they’re transparently fusing into one practice.”

DENA YAGO: POET AND ARTIST 

  ums she makes enigmatically cool, flat, and distancing, yet intimate. “The language of a poem is not ‘solved’ by an image, and vice versa,” Yago maintains. Her newest body of work has been shot in Central Park, where mallards drift on water with the quotidian perfection of stock photography. “The relationship between the two has to do with trying to explore an objective form of poetry, and a poetic form of objectivity.”

XAVIER CHA: PERFORMANCE ARTIST

Xavier Cha of Brooklyn designs ontological games for the body, repurposing it as a vessel for emotion. In a typical performance, whether live or staged for video, she directs participants to do simple things like emote raw fear—as in her well-received show at the Whitney Museum—or stare, which many sets of eyes did at 47 Canal earlier this year. Up next is a piece commissioned by the New Museum for December, in which “meaning is passed through different actors and translators who use different modes of communication, from flamboyant colloquialisms, to sign language, and beyond.”
