Meleko Mokgosi is an artist who works within an interdisciplinary framework to create large-scale project-based installations. By working across history painting, cinematic tropes, psychoanalysis, and post-colonial theory, his practice interrogates narrative tropes and the fundamental models for the inscription and transmission of history alongside established European notions of representation in order to address questions of nationhood, anti-colonial sentiments, and the perception of historicized events. His artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally at venues including the Botswana National Gallery, The Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art Museum, The Studio Museum in Harlem, the Armand Hammer Museum of Art and Culture Center, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and the Lyon Museum of Contemporary Art. Mokgosi is also Faculty Fellow-in-Residence at Second Street.

Matthias Heiderich is a self taught photographer from Germany who currently lives in Berlin. He was one of the first guys I noticed with this great sense of minimalist architecture photography. Conventional architectural photography is mainly focused on the entire building or even an entire cityscape. But Heiderich’s images focus on specific details. His aim is to pick out colors, contrasts, geometric structures, patterns, and certain symmetries. Armed with his camera, he shots everything that catches his eyes. Whether in Berlin or on his travels through the world, the German photographer has produced several collections of adorable ‘minimalism’. Read more about his latest series ‘Material I’ below the first image.
