Eric Abaka is a contemporary artist of Ghanaian descent living in Philadelphia. His oeuvre is heavily steeped in Post-Modern ideology, the practice of improvisation and a strong sense of DIY culture. He works in a wide range of mediums incorporating traditional and new-media art techniques, such as interactive digital animations, immersive art and video installations, social media art and electronic music.


Kelsey Halliday Johnson is a curator, artist and writer based in Philadelphia. She is a member of Vox Populi and a curatorial fellow in Photography & New Media at the Michener Art Museum in Doylestown. Previously, she held positions at Locks Gallery, Vox Populi, the Penn Museum and Blind Spot magazine and has studied at Wesleyan University, the University of Pennsylvania and Princeton University.

Walter Robinson is a New York artist and art critic. He began writing about art in the 1970s, when he co-founded the art zine Art-Rite in New York’s SoHo art district. He subsequently served as news editor of Art in America magazine (1980-96) and founding editor of Artnet magazine (1996-2012). Robinson was also a correspondent for Art TV Gallery Beat, a public access television show in the late ’90s, and a co-founder of Printed Matter, the New York bookstore devoted to publications by artists. As an art critic, Robinson is perhaps best known for coining the term “Zombie Formalism” to describe a kind of process-based abstraction that became popular in the contemporary art market in 2014.

Suzanne Seesman (moderator/host) is a Philadelphia-based artist whose past life experiences working in education, labor rights, cooperative organizing and the service industry have had a significant influence on her writing, thinking and making. She teaches courses at Temple University and Moore College of Art & Design and is currently a member of Vox Populi and co-director of the public programming and online publishing project The St. Claire. Seesman is also currently the site manager for the Historic Physick House Museum in Old City, Philadelphia.
