Frank Perrin is a French artist based in Paris who has spent the last ten years exploring the notion of Postcapitalism and compiling a compendium of our contemporary obsessions. From Joggers, and Yachts to Fashion Shows, Postcapitalism is a metaphysical flipbook of the fundamental ideas of our era, where each photography becomes a new landscape of the unconscious and desires of today.
Frank Perrin was formerly a philosophy teacher and an art critic. He started the photographic series of the Joggers in 1998 and the Fashion Shows in 2003. After founding the art review «Bloc Notes» in the early 1990s he began taking photographs. He is also the founding director of Crash magazine.
Frank Perrin’s work was featured in the Daelim Museum, Seoul, Korea at Contemporary Art Museum les abattoirs Toulouse, and recently new works at Centre Pompidou Metz and Shirn Kunsthalle Francfort.

Zoe Crosher is an artist who lives and works in Los Angeles. Inspired by the conflation of the image and the imaginary, particularly in regards to the troubled promise of renewal and the West, Crosher walks a blurred line between fantasy, reality, image and disappearance – something she is coining the ‘Imagiatic’. Her work has been included in numerous museum and gallery exhibitions including at the Museum of Modern Art’s New Photography show in 2012; Figure & Form in Contemporary Photography at LACMA, also in 2012; a solo exhibition The Further Disbanding of Michelle duBois at the California Museum of Photography in 2013; a solo exhibition at Dallas Contemporary 2012; and, the 2010 California Biennial at the Orange County Museum of Art. In April 2015, she had a solo project at The Palm Springs Museum in Palm Desert, and her current projects, LA-LIKE: Prospecting Palm Fronds and LA-LIKE: Escaped Exotics were up this fall at LAXART in Los Angeles. Since 2013, Crosher worked with the Los Angeles Nomadic Division (LAND) on The Manifest Destiny Billboard Project, for which she recently was co-awarded the 2015 Smithsonian Ingenuity of the Year Award.
