FAWC Friday: Ebb and Flow

February 3, 2023 from 5-9 PM

The Fine Arts Work Center is excited to invite you to our interactive new series: FAWC Fridays. This series features free nights of programming every first Friday between December and February, to engage audiences from Provincetown—and beyond. Each month we welcome a nationally recognized visiting writer and visual artist, alongside local artists, and performers. Every event takes a unique turn and provides the opportunity to connect the community with the Fellowship through open studios, print shop activities, and more. We celebrate the evening with food and drinks made available by local businesses from Provincetown and Outer Cape Cod.

FAWC Fridays are organized in collaboration with Fellowship Coordinators, S. Emsaki and Laura Cresté.

Tomashi Jackson, Visual Artist
Tomashi Jackson (b. 1980, Houston, Texas; lives and works in Cambridge, Massachusetts and New York City) combines practices of painting, printmaking, and sculpture with archival research in areas of public infrastructure policy. The work interrogates intersections between formal languages of visual art and political languages driving histories of segregation, voting rights, education, transportation, labor, and housing in the United States. Considering color as both chromatic and social, Jackson’s work embraces compositional abstraction to investigate the interaction of color and its impact on the perceived value of human life in public space. Her solo exhibitions include the forthcoming Across the Universe at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver, Colorado (2023); The Great Society at Tilton Gallery, New York City (2022); SLOW JAMZ at the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase, NY (2022); Brown II at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts (2021); The Land Claim at the Parrish Art Museum, Water Mill, New York (2021); Love Rollercoaster at The Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, Ohio (2020); Forever My Lady at Night Gallery, Los Angeles (2020); Time Out of Mind at Tilton Gallery, New York City (2019); Interstate Love Song at the Zuckerman Museum of Art, Kennesaw, Georgia (2018); and The Subliminal is Now at Tilton Gallery, New York City (2016). Her work was included in the 2019 Whitney Biennial and has been featured in group exhibitions at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Moody Center for the Arts at Rice University; Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art; the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston; the Contemporary Art Center, New Orleans; and the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art. Her work is included in the public collections of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, the Baltimore Museum of Art, and the Studio Museum in Harlem. Jackson completed the Skowhegan summer residency and was a Resident Fellow at ARCAthens, Athens, Greece in 2019 and she has been the Inga Maren Otto artist in residence at the Watermill Center in 2021. She was awarded the Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters & Sculptors Grant in 2020. Her work is represented by Tilton Gallery in New York City and Night Gallery in Los Angeles.
