Tomashi Jackson (b. 1980, Houston TX; lives and works in Cambridge MA and New York NY) combines practices of painting, printmaking, and sculpture with archival research in areas of public infrastructure policy. The work interrogates intersections between formal languages of visual art and political languages that drive histories of segregation, voting rights, education, transportation, labor, and housing in the United States.
Solo exhibitions include ‘Brown II’ at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Harvard University, Cambridge MA; ‘The Land Claim’ at the Parrish Art Museum, Water Mill NY; and ‘Love Rollercoaster’ at The Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus OH.
