Born in Miami Beach, Robarts holds a BFA in Sculpture from Pratt Institute. From 2010 to 2013 Robarts was employed as a Superintendent for an apartment building in East New York, Brooklyn. Many of the materials he works with lean on this history, i.e, painting walls on a scaffold, mopping floors, cleaning the sidewalk with a hose. His work moves forward from Arte Povera and Painterly Abstraction to examine fundamental questions of image making and the constituent elements of painting unified by a conceptual logic.
Carrie Schneider is an artist based in Brooklyn, NY, whose recent solo exhibitions include the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, the Finnish Museum of Photography, Helsinki, Galleri KiT, Trondheim, Monique Meloche Gallery, Chicago, and the California Museum of Photography. She is the recipient of a 2015 Creative Capital Award for Visual Arts.
Jeffrey Millett is a multidisciplinary artist whose work expands from painting to prototypes, challenging the status quo of specific fields under his investigation. The root of his work finds its foundation in an intensely driven, methodical, analytical process covering the social, economic and political landscapes within urban cities. Currently, his economic research uses public data of specific hedge fund positions to produce tangible, data-driven physical structures and drawings. Taking his own calculated risk, Millett has developed numerous investing strategies, trading options and equities in the stock market. These have become a lucrative venture, and long term benefit to his financial analysis and research, putting his own conceptual thesis at play for real consequences.
