The artists included in Current Conditions comment on the failure of physical and mental limits to contain the many itinerations of people and their societies, ideologies, and ambitions.

The program focuses on the subject of borders and politics of space, which is particularly relevant to today's newsreel of uprisings and protests around the world. Frequent themes and subjects such as terrain, motion, and weight are used to interpret the various renditions of the politics that continuously shape and govern our surroundings.

Originally from Mexico, Francisco Cordero has been working in publishing and fine arts in New York City since 2008. His experience includes working in the production and publishing of photography books at Aperture, organizing more than half a dozen exhibitions at Martos Gallery in Chelsea, NY. Cordero also worked in the development of organizations such as Humble Arts Foundation and Artists Wanted.

Luba Drozd is an artist and filmmaker with a career spanning eight years. Her political concerns that include understanding of dynamics and hierarchies of power are reflected in her work. Based in New York City she is currently pursuing an MFA from the Milton Avery School of the Arts at Bard College.
