David Pagel is a professor of art theory and history at Claremont Graduate University (CGU). He is well known as an art critic, especially for the Los Angeles Times (since 1991), and as a curator. Recently, Pagel was adjunct curator at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, New York (2008-2020). He has written extensively, including essays for exhibition catalogs by such artists as Jim Isermann, Rodney Carswell, Roy Dowell, David Klamen, Michael Reafsnyder, Robert Zakanitch, Tim Bavington, Sush Machida, Leslie Love Stone, Ron Nagle, Elizabeth Patterson, Asad Faulwell, Wendell Gladstone, and Irene Hardwicke Olivieri. He was the recipient of an Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship in Contemporary Arts Criticism in 1990 and was a Macgeorge Fellow at the University of Melbourne (2002). 


Robert Gunderman (USA, b. 1963) is a painter and performance artist. After his studies at Otis Art Institute (1988-89), Gunderman received considerable notice for his performances and exhibitions, notably Summer ‘96 at Dan Bernier in Santa Monica in 1995, where a large above-ground swimming pool was installed in the gallery to great effect. He co-founded FOOD HOUSE, an alternative space in Santa Monica (1992); followed by ACME, an influential artist-run space opened in 1994. Gunderman now lives and works in Fillmore, in the Santa Clara River Valley just north of Los Angeles, near the Sespe Condor Sanctuary at the foot of the Los Padres National Forest.
