Press Release

Lisa Jarrett is an artist and educator in Portland, OR. She received her BFA from Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY, and her MFA from the University of Montana, Missoula, MT.

Jarrett’s intersectional practice considers the politics of difference within various settings, including schools, landscapes, fictions, racial imaginaries, studios, communities, museums, galleries, walls, mountains, mirrors, floors, rivers, and lenses. She exists and makes socially engaged work within the African Diaspora. She recently discovered that her primary medium is questions.
