For its first edition, NeXus curatorial theme explores and treat notions of human (dis)connections, personal binds, social (re)attachments, misplaced identities, and focal (dis)placements. As a new initiative, NeXus will bring diverse manifestations of performance art where the body is at the center of artistic expression, corporeal examination, and challenging execution.

Sienna Reid’s pen and ink drawings on paper reflect on the words that women (and their intersectional community) are called when the intention is to demean them and assassinate their character.
The words originate in the world of subjective fantasy, but are used as if they are factual and based in reality. They are words that are impossible to counter, much like how the woman accused of being a witch in the past would be spared if she drowned, but would be convicted if she swam.
Reid’s work claims the words that women are called and makes them our own, without shame, emboldened and empowered.
A self described Homo Sapiens, dives into the unknown with eyes wide open exploring numerous mediums to dissect the beautiful questions our world gives birth to.
Eva‘s work incorporates a variety of cultural influences from her native Germany, including Bauhaus and Modernism.
Graphic design and fine art evolved into her main medium: photography.
The naked human body in all forms and shapes is the focus of her work. “It’s the visual essence of being human”.
Eva displays a deep fascination with androgyny and how our perceptions of gender conformity and transgression are expressed, gender and race convergence and divergence. She is always challenging her viewers to look more deeply and question their judgments.

Frida expressed herself very strongly in her paintings, although considered surrealist,she painted her own realities.
The flowers to remain in the universe symbolize the female, a delicate soul, hoping for permanence and unperishable presence.
Uta’s live action painting creates a Frida portrait, then a wheelchair Frida adds the flowers to the painting, the “super flower Frida” will spread more petals into the area, room and audience.
