Tomashi Jackson’s practice combines painting, textile, sculpture, video, and collage. Her works draw disparate connections between formal concerns such as Albers’ color theory and social realities such as police brutality and racism in America. Her visually and mimetically layered works explore the entwined relationships between the aesthetic and the political within society. Her work has been exhibited at MASS MoCA, the New Museum in New York, the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts at Harvard, the Walker Art Center, and MoMA PS1, among others. Jackson earned a BFA from The Cooper Union, an MS from the MIT School of Architecture and Planning, and an MFA from Yale School of Art.
