Recognize, Research, Respond: An ArtLab Workshop

with Veronica Jackson

In this non-hierarchical workshop, artists will offer each other critical feedback, from idea to fruition, culminating in an online group exhibition of artworks workshopped. Through a combination of feedback sessions in class, exercises, and additional breakout sessions with small groups, artists will get to know each other, forming connections to strengthen deep and meaningful feedback between each other’s art practices. This workshop is created to help support artists who are going through a transition; maybe starting a new project, series, or looking to change things up. While all Artlabs have the same basic structure each session is responsive to the attending artists' overlapping interests, needs, and the approach of the session’s guide. This workshop is lead by Veronica Jackson. Veronica brings to Artlab deep questions about artistic process that focuses on defining our audience, research, and purpose as an artist. Veronica has a knack for asking important questions that reveal and focus our intentions, this will be shared with the class through materials, questions, and exercises to apply to your artistic process. The Virtual Exhibition Reception for this class will happen on Friday, October 14th with the online Exhibition Dates: Oct 14th - Jan 13th.

Veronica Jackson’s artwork stems from the critical examination of visual culture. As an artist, she records, interprets, and makes aware 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 the cache of contemporary and historic research accumulated. Jackson’s text-based and autobiographical work visualizes her racialized and gendered experience in America while illuminating the portrayal, perception, and legacy of Black women in popular media both past and present.

As a cultural producer, Jackson’s visual contributions are performances in social justice, which she defines as the agency to reclaim her own body, to live and love her own truth, and to reveal to anyone who has ever felt disenfranchised or “othered” that they may unapologetically do the same.
