Skylar Haskard (born 1977 in Los Angeles) explains that his practice “commits to the idea that a work can change over the course of an exhibition’s duration…In an ideal exhibition the work should act as an introduction or open-ended proposal rather than being a sealed, unalterable entity.” It is a work of enjambment. It’s the hanging sentence that precedes, even coerces, a jump to the next thought. It derives its multiple layers from the very fact that it is participatory and impermanent.
Haskard has shown both nationally and internationally, with his most recent solo exhibitions taking place in 2007 at Anna Helwing Gallery, Los Angeles, and Transmission Gallery, Glasgow. In 2008 Haskard was invited by Curator Philipp Kaiser to partner with John Baldessari, as part of a group show reinterpreting the work of Allan Kaprow at MOCA. A faculty member at Otis College of Art and Design, Haskard currently lives and works in his studio in Los Angeles.
Michael Rashkow (born 1974 in Los Angeles) currently lives and works in Los Angeles. He has had solo exhibitions in Los Angeles at China Art Objects in 2009 and at LAX Art in 2007. He has also exhibited widely in New York, the MOCAD in Detroit, and abroad. Michael Rashkow works in a variety of medium, the material and visual effect of the work changes, though he consistently deals with notions of transformation across a broader spectrum. Rashkow studied Cognitive Science at UC Berkeley and holds an MFA and BFA from UCLA’s School of Arts and Architecture.
