Tomashi Jackson first joined us as a visiting artist and lecturer for the Art Talk series in the 2018 summer residency. She now has stayed on as an MFA faculty member and mentor.
Jackson’s multi-media practice works across painting, video, textile, and the sculptural. Examining the relationship between the aesthetic and the political, Jackson creates layers of content which bridge historical actions with shifting artistic structures. Her work has been shown at venues such as MoMA PS1, the New Museum, Mass MoCA, and the Walker Art Center. Jackson is represented by Tilton Gallery in New York.
