Since 2000, the Chinese/Japanese collaborative team RongRong&inri have been creating impeccably printed, romantic photographic series that often chronicle their lives together. The husband-and-wife team is widely recognized for self-portraits that juxtapose their life stories against both natural landscapes from around the world and urban landscapes in a rapidly developing China. Through these narrative photographs, RongRong&inri elaborate on relationships and cultural differences and similarities.

Mexico City–based Mario García Torres is best known for his engaging cinematic narratives that explore and reveal the overlooked and now-buried histories and personalities of 1960s and 1970s conceptual art. García Torres researches evidence, myths, and particular stories to retell some of these forgotten narratives from an important moment in art history, while also filling in missing gaps with fictional threads. The artist presents these accounts in his varied body of work, which includes video, slide installations, photography, and sculpture.
