Join us on Thursday, September 29th at 12pm on Facebook for the online premiere of artist talk with 2022 Post-Grad Resident, Kamille Jackson, as her three-month post-grad residency comes to a close. Jackson talks with moderator Leslie Mounaime, curator of exhibitions, about her art practice and experiences during her time in the Post-Grad Studio #319.
Kamille Jackson is an interdisciplinary artist from Northern Virginia. In her work, cosmic colors meet checkerboards from a long-gone suburban counterculture and symbols plucked from astrology and spirituality-based imagery. Floating and loosely abstract pictures form from the amalgamation of texts conjured by black conceptual artists, desert transcendentalists, and queer media. Through her work, Kamille builds a queer, black, mystical iconography with drawing, painting, writing, and embroidery.
She earned an MFA from George Washington University’s Corcoran School of the Arts and Design and a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University. She recently shared a visiting artist lecture with the graduate students at Massachusetts College of Art and Design and received the Outstanding MFA Award as a participant in the Next Exhibition. She has exhibited work at The Garden, Target Gallery, Anderson Gallery, Studio 23, Bronx Art Space, Gallery 5, Richmond Library, and the Refinery Space. Commissions include Justin Allen’s Black Boots’ Ekphrastic Punk EP, Afropunk, Elbowroom, and Gallery 5.
Jackson has been working in studio #319 from July – September.
