Neuberger Museum of Art Presents Artist Talk
With Tomashi Jackson
The Neuberger Museum of Art, in collaboration with the School of Art+Design, will welcome 2022 Roy R. Neuberger Prize recipient Tomashi Jackson back to campus to discuss her work on October 12 from 5-6pm in the Perception Lab – Room 1016, Purchase College, Visual Arts Building, (adjacent to the Neuberger Museum of Art). Sit in on the conversation as Jackson describes how she uses light, color, sound, and texture to explore issues of injustice and bring the power of art and policy to bear on historical engagement and critical action. This is a free event. Seating is limited.
Tomashi Jackson is an American multimedia artist working across painting, video, textiles and sculpture. Born in Houston (TX) and raised in Los Angeles (CA), she currently lives and works in New York (NY) and Cambridge (MA).
Jackson’s work investigates the relationships between the aesthetic and the political. She references layered content bridging historical actions with shifting artistic structures.
