Join Tomashi Jackson (artist in residence at the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture) for a public discussion about her present research. Jackson will be in conversation with Nicole King, associate professor of American Studies and director of the Orser Center for the Study of Place, Community, and Culture at UMBC.
Tomashi Jackson is an expanded field painter whose multimedia work investigates the links between history, materiality, and current events. In her residency at CADVC, which began in 2022, she has been developing a body of research focused on the history of and advocacy for alternative art spaces. This work builds on Jackson’s existing research that she calls the “Pedagogy Study Hall” project. The project is ongoing.
The Center for Art, Design, and Visual Culture hosts an exploratory research residency that allows artists and interdisciplinary collaborators to take advantage of scholarly resources and to build partnerships at UMBC and in the Baltimore region. Artists In Residence (AIRs) are invited to pursue open-ended outcomes, and their engagements may develop into workshops, artworks, or other future projects. Among the artists the CADVC welcomes this season is Tomashi Jackson.
