Ariana Cardenas Vargas
Actress / Audiovisual artist
Short Bio: Moving in the area between film and theater, I use my video editing studies and my work as an actress to play with multi-visual arts as I experiment with disguise. Currently studying musical theater, feeling curious about video art and VJing, and developing a project that uses burlesque to work with the body and elements of undressing as a tool to change attitudes and prejudices against the female natural body in today’s society. It’s showtime!

Come Dressed Up!
Free Entrance: BYOB (trae tu bebida)
I was raised in Brooklyn, New York. I started learning how to develop film and work in a darkroom when I was 11 years old and since then have always pursed my interest in the process of developing pictures. I often use old cameras including a Polaroid in which for the past two years I have dedicated to producing my artwork. I also sometimes like to draw my photographs. I try to incorporate my interest in psychology into my work.

Kara Liebowitz, Artist and Anthropology student
I am a New York City based artist and a student of Anthropology at New York University as well.
In terms of my process relating to my painting, I like to work large because it allows me to move freely with my body, arm, and hand. In turn, I primarily paint with oils because of the fluidity and expressiveness which they allow me. My focus right now is on figurative paintings of women. I hope to explore the relationship between gender and sexuality in terms of representation, ideas, attitudes, actions, beliefs, and practices. It is possible to interpret the women I depict as an objectification of women in general so I think it important to emphasize that my goal is not to perpetuate stereotypes that entrap women.
I believe there to be a great deal of strength that can be derived from one’s sexuality and it is pivotal to the construction of selfhood. I struggle to understand this with my paintings and ultimately I hope to challenge paradigms about art by making people question themselves.
I reside in a fifth floor walkup in the West Village (Greenwich Village in Manhattan) with two hairless cats named Igby and Nefertiti. Their natural curiosity and off beat looks and demeanor inspire me.
Originally from Germany, I spent the last ten years living in New York, Paris, Montreal and Cairo. Away from more familiar shores, including a possible career as an international lawyer, I came to P52 to explore my passion for photography and discover new oceans.
