Jason Jägel was born in 1971 in Boston, Massachusetts. He received degrees from California College of Arts and Crafts (BFA, 1995) and Stanford University (MFA, 2002). A monograph of his work entitled, Seventy-Three Funshine (2008), was created with an accompanying ten-inch vinyl record with music by Madlib and published by Electric Works, San Francisco. Jägel has been featured in numerous solo and group shows since 1995 including those in New York, Tokyo, Copenhagen, Milan, Barcelona, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans and more. Jagel’s work appears in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The UCLA Hammer Museum, and the Portland Museum of Art, among others. Jason lives with his wife and two daughters in San Francisco.
Born in Mexico City, Juan Luna-Avin is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work explores mythology, memory, and history. The work reflects influences that range from abstract expressionism to comic book aesthetics, especially the use of crude drawing techniques and arbitrary compositions. He has exhibited at such venues as the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Southern Exposure, Queen’s Nails Projects, San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, Casa del Lago (Mexico City), and Ceroinspiracion (Quito, Ecuador). Since 2004, he has been a member of Club Unicornio, a San Francisco-based collective of artists-DJs who play underground, kitschy, and experimental music from Latin America. He holds an MFA in Art Practice from Stanford University and a BFA in Painting from the San Francisco Art Institute, where he was an Osher Scholar. Awards include a Suzanne Baruch Lewis MFA Grant (2010) and a McNamara Family Creative Arts Grant from the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (2009). He is currently a Senior Lecturer in the Visual and Public Art department at California State University, Monterey Bay.
