Angelo Madsen Minax’s projects explore queer and trans intimacies, chosen and biological structures of kinship, metaphysical and technological phenomena, archival documents, and speculative imagination. Drawing on elements of auto-ethnography and psychodynamics, the artist’s work is fuelled by his history of participation in justice-oriented communities and DIY media activism. Minax’s works have been shown at Berlinale, Toronto International Film Festival, New York Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, the Leslie Lohman Museum, Museum of the Moving Image, Anthology Film Archives, the British Film Institute, KurzFilm Hamburg, the European Media Art Festival, Berwick Media Arts Festival, Alchemy Festival of Moving Image, and dozens of LGBT film festivals around the world. He has participated in residencies at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, the Core Program at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Yaddo, Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, and others. Minax is currently an Associate Professor of Time-Based Media at the University of Vermont and a Queer|Art Mentor. He was recently awarded an International Documentary Association (IDA) Award for Best Writing for his feature film North By Current, and is a 2022-2023 Guggenheim Fellow.
Jill H. Casid is Professor of Visual Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. With Sowing Empire: Landscape and Colonization (Minnesota, 2005) and Scenes of Projection: Recasting the Enlightenment Subject (Minnesota, 2015 and forthcoming in Spanish translation with Ediciones Metales Pesados) as well as the co-edited volume Art History in the Wake of the Global Turn (Yale, 2014), Casid reconstitutes landscape, projection, and the geopolitics of art historical method as critical objects vital to intersectional queer and trans*feminist interrogation. Casid is currently completing Necrolandscaping, the first part of a two-book project on Form at the Edges of Life. Recent articles have appeared in Art in America, Women and Performance, TDR, and elsewhere. Casid’s artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including in exhibitions at Signs and Symbols and the Ford Foundation Gallery in New York and Documenta 15.
