Yuula Benivolski
Born in 1980 in Moscow USSR, grew up in Northern Israel and currently live and work between Toronto and Montreal.
I work with photographs, projection, video and installation. I'm interested in migration, tradition and ritual, comfort, acclimatization and survival, or stories and details from my childhood that shaped my views on important stuff like sex and death or any other transformative events.

Joyce Lau
Joyce Lau is a photo-based artist from Toronto. She is a graduate from Ryerson University’s Image Arts Photography studies program.
Lau’s fascination with iconography is prevalent in all her work. Although humour-driven, Lau’s works are highly pensive and curious renderings of what is often considered “common knowledge.” Consistently themed around artifice, perceived ideas and expectations, and guilt, her works are cynical expressions about mass production and “what-ifs.” Interaction between the viewer and the work is crucial. Whether by size, medium, or mechanism, Lau’s work entices viewers to touch, examine, and to participate.

Adrienne Kammerer
Hailing from the suburban cultural epicenter of Burlington, Ontario. Adrienne was born in 1985. She is a self-taught art school dropout currently residing in Toronto
