My Barbarian is an artist collective based in Los Angeles whose interdisciplinary projects conflate fantasy and satire to explore cross-cultural mishaps and historical misadventures. The members, Malik Gaines, Jade Gordon, and Alejandro Segade have collaborated for eight years on an interdisciplinary practice that engages viewers critically while playing off of the effects of spectacle and entertainment.

Born in Taiwan in 1973, Pearl C.
Hsiung received her BA at the University of California, Los Angeles (1997) and her MFA at Goldsmiths College, London (2004). Pearl C. Hsiung makes works that are an amalgam of diverse, metaphor laden images of transmogrified landscape-portraiture hybrids. Hsiung draws from varied sources of visual vocabulary, including generic photography books found in thrift stores, sci-fi/fantasy illustrations, medieval alchemical drawings, mass culture graphics and images culled from memory. The resulting images offer a multitude of interpretations ranging from the psycho-sexual to the anthro-geological.

Jen Smith is a cultural producer who has been dabbling across mediums for the past twenty years. Presently, she makes sculptures, performances, photographs and paintings investigating cultural mythologies, nationalism and sexuality.

After School Arts Program (ASAP) provides innovative and experimental arts programming for artists, curators, historians and critics interested in continuing their education in the visual arts.

ASAP is a not-for-profit community service offering lectures, salons, workshops, critiques, exhibitions, film screenings and publications. Dedicated to producing an educational and creative space outside of the university system, ASAP is a bridge between the rigors of academia and the plasticity of the natural world. Supporting programs/curricula that might not exist with in a university setting, ASAP is committed to experimentation and the ideology that the current status
quo for arts education is not the most effective method for engaging contemporary audiences. ASAP does not advocate a superior method for communicating ideas visually but rather promotes alternative modes of understanding.
