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