Cheryl Pagurek

Cheryl Pagurek is an artist living in Ottawa whose practice mixes experimentation with photo and video. While based on keen observation of reality and everyday occurrences, the works disrupt our usual expectations of these media and their traditional claim to verisimilitude, highlighting instead their constructed nature.

Frances Adair Mckenzie

Frances Adair Mckenzie is a multi-media artist who combines genres and technologies as a means to invoke the construction of fanstastical internal and external worlds. Her work in motion-design, animation and immersive installation evokes a din of concentrated effects that meld both high and low cultural references and technologies. With a simultaneous eye to the history of art and the culture of Pop, she extends upon the precedents of feminism and digital culture only to foreground the spectacle as a D.I.Y space of subversion and tool of emporwerment. Frances Adair Mckenzie lives and works in Montreal. She attained a diploma in New Media from BCIT and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University. The National Film Board of Canada (ONF) has commissioned her animations and her work has been exhibited at the MAC (Musée d'art contemporain) in Montreal and in the Satosphere of the SAT (Société des Arts Technologiques). Frances also collaborates with Aleks Schurmer, to form the collective Party Like It's 1699. The collective's aim is to take classical music from the confines of the modern concert hall and to reclaim it as a popular medium in the form of a digital Baroque opera.

Rojin Shafiei

Rojin Shafiei is an Iranian artist living and working in Montreal. In her videos, art is a vehicle for the translation of cultural messages and is used to present diverse feminine subjectivities. She explores these themes both through a literal documentary style and as symbols. She is particularly inspired by the observation of routines, on both individual and at the metropolis levels. 

Tina Bararian

Tina Bararian is an Iranian modern dancer and choreographer based in Toronto. She holds a BA in Film and Cinema Studies at York University, and a diploma in modern and ballet dance from George Brown College in Toronto. She has been awarded as the 2nd runner up in TCCSA's (The Cross-Cultural Community Services Association) Youth Ambassador Competition 2012 and has performed on television and several dance theatre performances.
