Partners and recent collaborators, former Bay Area artists Maja Ruznic and Joshua Hagler exhibit paintings together for the first time in their two-person exhibition entitled Among The Missing. Both of them painters with an affinity for abstracted figuration, the pair spent three months in 2013 traveling through Eastern and Western Europe and Syrian refugee camps in Jordan.

Juxtapoz friend and recently featured Bay Area artist Joshua Hagler and fellow artist Maja Ruznic have set out on a journey through the Middle East and Europe, and have launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund a book collection. As the duo notes of the project "The project brings us through Europe as well as Jordan where we will be organizing visual storytelling workshops with Syrian refugees. Having both worked from personal experiences and with individuals struggling with psychological trauma in our past work, Drift becomes not only a search for home but an experiment to see what happens when the work is created in a state of transience and full involvement."
