Artist Alex Jackson returns to campus as a visiting artist, discussing his work and experience as a professional artist. Jackson last spoke to MFA Visual Arts students during their January residency at the beginning of this year. This spring, members of the Lesley Art + Design community and the general public are invited to join us for this free lecture.
Jackson's process has been described by him as “A mining through historical narratives, Afrodiasporic histories and geographies, science fiction, global modernisms, and a discourse on representation.”
Jackson creates a distinctive tableau of painting figuration and narrative imagery. Recent shows of his include Zevitas Marcus, Los Angeles; Elmhurst Art Museum, Elmhurst, IL; Green Gallery, Yale University; and Steven Zevitas Gallery, Boston.
