Wendy White is critically hailed for work that expands the parameters of painting through the use of multiple canvases, sculptural additions, and site-specific installation. Frequently inspired by the visual cacophony of her neighborhood of Chinatown in New York City, her works contain dense accumulations of natural and synthetic materials, atmospheric color, digital and analogue marks, and fragments of text.

Richard Meyer’s research and writings on modern and contemporary art focus on the ongoing debate over sexuality and gender, its effects on modern art and visual culture, and censorship and the public sphere. In lucid prose, he has addressed queer perspectives, key feminist artists, and Andy Warhol’s fascination with Jews. His most recent book, What Was Contemporary Art? redefines "the contemporary" as a condition of being alive to—and alongside—other moments, artists, and objects. Meyer is Professor of Art History at Stanford University.

Your North Surrealism Isn’t Our South Realism, or What Is Transgression Today?

“Permeated with urban problems and social contrasts, São Paulo offers quotidian situations promoting various types of encounters: I’m exposed to unimaginable situations, often discovering, accidentally, situations of conflict. My work uses these situations as starting points. Experiencing these accidents makes me think of ways to immortalize transitory and ephemeral forms. Although politically loaded, these accidents usually go unnoticed.” –Marcelo Cidade
