Gage Sixkiller [@gagesixkiller] Gage is a citizen of the Cherokee Nation and currently resides on the unceded homelands of the Council of the Three Fires: the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Potawatomi Nations (Chicago, IL.) They are a conceptual artist and cultural producer who works in the mediums of painting, sculpture, installation, and durational performance. Their work confronts social convention through gender exploration and confrontation, critical examination of color and space, and a journey of self discovery and experience through creation.

Aza Greenlee [@mybloodyeye] is a body artist and co-conspirator at No Nation Tangential Unspace Art Lab. This coalescence is one to galavant in dreamscapes, ancestral juke joints, chaturbate masturbation web temples, loose-tooth tanks, and The Heartspace. They organize “Smudge Cinema Project”, a now-and-then-wait-when? screening series that takes a look at what happens when a film is projected on a wall for people to watch. Metabolization seems to be what they appear to do, lately.
