A Constellation of Blackness: Rendering Invisibility, Hypervisibility, Devaluation, and Triumph
An Artist’s Talk with Veronica Jackson
6:00 PM, Friday, October 13, 2023,
at the Virginia Center for the Book
Visual artist, interpretive designer, and recovering architect Veronica Jackson invites visitors on a journey through her art-making practice. From her introduction to the Virginia Center for the Book in 2018 to current and ongoing projects, Jackson will discuss her multidisciplinary and autobiographical practice, realized through letterpress, printmaking, silk screening, and immersive installations.
Veronica Jackson’s artwork stems from the critical examination of visual culture. As an artist she records, interprets, and makes aware of the complexities in which humans exist and affect their social surroundings. As an architect and interpretive designer she creatively solves problems within virtual and built environments. Her visual art practice is a combination of past professional disciplines, present lived experiences, and an accumulation of contemporary and historic research.
Jackson’s body of work is text-based, autobiographical, and in response to her gendered and racialized existence in America.
This Artist’s Talk is free and open to the public. No registration is necessary. The program is, in part, funded by a grant from the Josef and Robert Cornell Memorial Foundation.
