Varvara & Mar kunstnikeduo on loodud 2009. aastal ja selle moodustavad Varvara Guljajeva ja Mar Canet, kelle teosed on sageli tõukunud digitaalajastust. Oma kunstnikupraktikas seisavad nad silmitsi sotsiaalsete muutustega ja tehnoloogilise ajastu mõjudega. Peale selle huvitab neid kineetika ja osaluskunst, mis on oluline osa nende loomingust, ja tekstiilitootmine digitaalproduktsiooni ajastul. Nad on oma teoseid eksponeeritud sellistes institutsioonides nagu MAD, New York; FACT, Liverpool; Barbican Centre, London; Onassis Cultural Centre, Ateena; ZKM, Karlsruhe.
Stacey May Koosel (sünd 1982) on ajakirja Estonian Art peatoimetaja, lisaks tegutseb ta kuraatori ja kunstikriitikuna. Hiljuti kureeris ta näituse soome kunstil põhineva näituse “Hive Mind” Tallinna Kunstihoone kahes galeriis.

Näitust toetab Hispaania Suursaatkond Eestis.
Narva kunstiresidentuuri opereerib Eesti Kunstiakadeemia koostöös Narva Gate-ga, mille tegevust toetab Kultuuriministeerium.
