CEAM Artist Residency presents an Artist Talk with Jillian Mayer on Thursday, October 7, 2021 at 6:00pm. This event is free and open to the public.
The Miami-based artist is our CEAM Artist in Residence this fall. Mayer will be on campus October 4-15, 2021 to conduct class visits and undertake research for her upcoming exhibition at CEAM in January 2022.
Through videos, sculptures, online experiences, photography, performances, and installations, Mayer explores how technology affects our lives, bodies, and identities by processing how our physical world and bodies are impacted and reshaped by our participation in a digital landscape.
Mayer investigates the points of tension between our online and physical worlds. She then makes work that attempts to inhabit the increasingly porous boundary between the two. Her artwork has a consistent thread of modeling how to subvert capital-driven modes of technological innovation.
Jillian Mayer is an artist and filmmaker. She has held solo exhibitions at Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts in Omaha, Nebraska (2019), Kunst Aarhus in Aarhus, Denmark (2019), and the University of Buffalo Art Museum in Buffalo, NY (2018)…just to name a few.
