Designed in collaboration with Tomashi Jackson and MCA Denver for her exhibition, Across the Universe.
The mid-career survey Tomashi Jackson: Across the Universe will present nearly a decade of work across disciplines and will provide an overview of the threads in Jackson’s practice and her varied use of materials.
Tomashi Jackson creates vibrant research driven works in the mediums of paintings, printmaking, video, photography, fiber, and sculpture. Influenced by California muralist traditions reflecting peoples’ movements of the 1950’s-1990’s, her often immersive work scrutinizes the mechanics of societal power and recognizes the triumphs for the empowerment of communities of color.
Jackson builds textured surfaces from textiles, paper, site specific earthen materials and ephemera, transformed archival images, washes and opaque applications of colors to visualize her observations of human experiences touched by legislated governance. Her practice employs geometric abstraction, expressionism, and halftone lines that crosshatch and affect the viewer's perception, illuminating the intersecting nature of historic resistance to oppression with present day resonances. Many recent paintings are supported by awning style structures extending from the walls, bringing a protective architecture element inside and projecting colored lines from vinyl strips onto the wall itself.
