Describing his process as “a mining through historical narratives, Afro-diasporic histories and geographies, science fiction, global modernisms, and a discourse on representation,” Jackson creates a distinctive tableau of painting figuration and narrative imagery. Recent shows of his include exhibitions at Zevitas Marcus, Los Angeles; Elmhurst Art Museum, Elmhurst, IL; Green Gallery, Yale University; and Steven Zevitas Gallery, Boston.

The Art Talks Lecture Series is sponsored by the College of Art and Design MFA in Visual Arts program and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
