João Enxuto and Erica Love work on projects about the techno-politics of work, institutions, and economies connected to Contemporary Art.

Enxuto received an MFA in Photography from RISD and Love holds BAs from Brown University in Economics and Visual Arts and an MFA from UCLA. Together they were fellows at the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program (2012-2013). They teach at the Cooper Union, New York University, City College New York, The New Centre for Research and Practice, and the Maumaus. They have given talks and exhibited work at the Centre Pompidou, Whitney Museum of Art, New Museum, Walker Art Center, Louisiana Museum in Denmark, Anthology Film Archives and other venues worldwide. Their writing has been published by Artforum, Verso Books, Mousse Magazine, Art in America and Wired Magazine, among others. They were awarded a New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) Artist Fellowship and a Creative Capital Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant in 2017.

During their residency at AiR 351, Enxuto and Love will work on an experimental film tentatively titled A Film for People, which is an in-depth investigation of social entanglements and labor practices shaping competing visions of the future city.
