Sherwin Ovid,
Adjunct Lecturer,

Channeling concepts of cultural transmission through the movement of mixed media Sherwin Ovid draws from the experience of immigration as a space of contingent exchange. A morphology of forms encompass  the dynamic interplay of material curiosity forged as a  visual bricolage that make virtuous  the implicitly uneven similitude of diasporic phenomena. Domestic spaces of leisure yield a plethora of objects in his study of migratory aesthetics, invoking class aspirations that fuse ornament and heirloom. Pigment, cotton, resin, dirt, are but a few of the cumalitive ingredients that entice us to the surfaces of his work. However, a melange of narrative idioms underpin the vernacular dexterity of forms that bristles against and along the  primacy of formal cohesion.

Ovid received his BFA from the School Art Institute of Chicago in 2007 and is recieved Master’s of Fine Art from the University of Illinois at Chicago where he received a Lincoln Fellowship. Ovid has exhibited with Unit 2 Art Collective in Chicago, University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Chicago Pop-Up Loop Alliance Gallery and Swimming Pool Project Space in Chicago.

Brendan Fernandes,
Visiting Artist,

Brendan Fernandes' unique cultural background as a Kenyan-Indian-Canadian has confronted him with the hybrid and transitional nature of identity. This compels his artistic practice, in which he questions the notion of authenticity and explores the thesis that identity is not static, but enacted.  He completed the Independent Study Program of the Whitney Museum of American Art (2007) and earned his MFA (2005) from The University of Western Ontario and his BFA (2002) from York University in Canada. He has exhibited internationally and nationally including exhibitions at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, MoMA, the Museum of Art and Design New York, Art in General, the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal, The National Gallery of Canada, The Art Gallery of Hamilton, Brooklyn Museum, The Studio Museum in Harlem, Mass MoCA, The Andy Warhol Museum, the Art Gallery of York University, Deutsche Guggenheim, Bergen Kunsthall, Stedelijk Museum, Sculpture Centre, Manif d’Art: The Quebec City Biennial, The Third Guangzhou Triennial and the Western New York Biennial through The Albright-Knox Art Gallery.

Fernandes has been awarded many highly regarded residencies around the world, including The Canada Council for the Arts International Residency in Trinidad and Tobago (2006), The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Work Space (2008), Swing Space (2009) and Process Space (2014) programs, and invitations to the Gyeonggi Creation Center at the Gyeonggi Museum of Modern Art, Korea (2009) and ZKM, Karlsruhe, Germany (2011). He was a finalist for the Sobey Art Award Canada’s pre-eminent award for contemporary art. (2010), and was on the longlist for the 2013 and 2015 prize.  He was a 2014 recipient of a Robert Rauschenberg Residency Fellowship. A national Canadian tour of his work recently concluded and will culminate in a monography produced by Black Dog Press in London this fall.

Pamela Bannos,
Associate Professor of Instruction,

Pamela Bannos's work challenges how we understand photographs, as well as how we perceive real space. She typically works in series or conducts extensive research-based projects that culminate in an exhibition or a web-based presentation. The series, Amnesia, consists of photographs that appear as white as the paper they are printed on until one’s eyes adjust to the image and its nuances are revealed. In the ongoing Some Untitled Pictures series, she scans found vintage snapshots and then digitally manipulates them, shifting the focus to reveal something that was not the apparent intention of the original photographer. Research-based projects include Imaging and Imagining Space, a collaboration with a Northwestern professor of astronomy that explores our trust in scientific imagery and resulted in an exhibition at the Mary and Leigh Block Museum.

The web-based project, 8th Avenue at 14th Street, examines the physical space within a 19th-century glass negative of a New York City street corner. Hidden Truths, a site-specific and web-based project about Chicago's Lincoln Park introduces questions about how visual evidence does not accurately represent the past, and shows how a lack of such evidence may be literally hiding more historically accurate information. Most recently, as part of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago’s exhibition, “The Way of the Shovel: Art as Archaeology,” Bannos’s web-based project, Shifting Grounds, presents an investigation of the history and transformation of the land upon which the MCA sits.
