Tomashi Jackson: Across the Universe @ ICA

February 21 @ 8:00 am - June 2 @ 8:00 pm

Institute of Contemporary Art – University of Pennsylvania ICA

118 S. 36th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19104 United States


The solo exhibition Tomashi Jackson: Across the Universe is the first to bring together paintings, video, prints, and sculpture from different bodies of work Jackson has created over the past eight years, providing an overview of the threads in her practice and her use of materials. Approaching her video works as “moving paintings,” the exhibition presents examples of videos in dialogue with paintings and sculpture and articulates how Jackson’s approach to color and conceptual layering translates across these mediums. Over the course of her career Jackson has closely investigated specific histories related to cities, lands, and individuals in the United States.
