Dylan Mortimer earned his B.F.A. at the Kansas City Institute of Art and his M.F.A. from the School of Visual Art, New York, New York. His work questions how expressions of private faith function in the public sphere, and explores the boundaries of what types of faith expressions are permitted versus prohibited. Employing a range of formal, cultural, and conceptual languages, Mortimer has most recently merged the iconographies and vocabularies of Christianity and Hip Hop culture in a continued investigation of how religious belief, popular culture, and social norms do and do not comfortably relate. Mortimer has presented public art installations in New York, NY; Indianapolis, IN; Jackson, TN; Chicago, IL; Bellingham,WA; Lawrence, KS; and Kansas City, MO, including commissioned works for Avenue of the Arts and Art in the Loop Foundation. He has presented one-person shows at PS-122, New York; Boots Contemporary Art Space, St. Louis; and Vlepo Gallery, New York; as well as Leedy-Voulkos Art Center, the Cube @ Beco, Kansas City Jewish Museum Epsten Gallery, all in Kansas City. His work has been featured in group shows at venues including Dumbo Arts Center, Brooklyn, NY; Artists Space, New York, NY; Longwood Arts Gallery, Bronx, NY; David Zwirner, New York, NY; University of Massachusetts Amherst Fine Art Center, MA; Street Level Sculpture Competition, Cedar Rapids, IA; and H&R Block Artspace, Kansas City, MO.

Jaimie Warren is a photographer, curator, and performance artist, who makes theatrical, humorous, self-portraits in different scenarios and locations. In addition to candid, snapshot style photographs documenting her own life and surroundings, Warren is the creator of Whoop Dee Doo, an ongoing curatorial and performance-based project that creates a wild platform for diverse community talents and participants in a kid-friendly, faux public access television program format.

Warren attended the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and received her B.F.A. from the Kansas City Art Institute. Her work has been presented in solo exhibitions at Higher Pictures in New York, White Flag Projects in St. Louis, and Telephonebooth Contemporary Art in Kansas City, as well as in group exhibitions at venues including Le Lieu Unique, Nantes, France; Smith-Stewart, New York; Getsumin, Osaka; Beida University, Beijing; David Castillo Annex, Miami; Van Abbemuseum Eindhoven, the Netherlands; Colette, Paris, France; and Max Wigram Gallery, London. Whoop Dee Doo has travelled to Deitch Projects, New York, NY; Rocket Projects, Miami Fl; and Bemis Center for Contemporary Art Omaha, NE. Warren’s photographs have been published nationally and internationally, including in “Don’t You Feel Better,” a book of her self-portraits published by Aperture in 2008.

Andrzej Zielinski received his B.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2002 and his M.F.A. from Yale University in 2004. Of his paintings of laptops, paper shredders, and ATM Machines, painter/writer Joe Fyfe wrote in BOMB magazine: “Zielinski is in league with a number of young painters…who unite painterly abstraction with the language of caricature… He is said to “unite painterly abstraction with the language of caricature…Zielinski has not chosen these objects as motifs for painterly investigation so much as oil paint, crayons, panels, graphite, and paper are mediums utilized to help him define his attitude toward these singular objects…The intensely prosthetic relationship many of us have developed with our laptops is reflected in Zielinski’s discovery that it is impossible for him to create a stable image of one of them.”

Zielinski has had solo exhibitions at Nicole Klagsburn Gallery, New York; Marc Selwyn Fine Art, Los Angeles; and Dolphin Gallery, Kansas City. His work has been included in curated group shows including “Greater New York” at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, Long Island City, NY; “Homecoming” at the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Overland Park, KS; “Possessed: Representations of Single Objects” at Dorsky Gallery, Long Island City, NY; and “Blender” at Sundram Tagore Gallery, New York.
