Veronica Jackson

Veronica Jackson will be giving an artist presentation on May 11, 2021 at 6:30 pm via Zoom.
For anyone interested in receiving a zoom link, please contact info@danvillemuseum.org.

Veronica Jackson’s work is autobiographical, stems from her position as a black woman marking space, and responds to the travails of her ancestors. She has a multidisciplinary visual-art practice based on an interpretive exhibit design, and architecture career spanning more than three decades. Jackson tells stories using quotidian objects such as felt-lined bulletin boards, clothing, hair, handmade paper, timecards, and text. Her work addresses several internal queries arising from her plight as a black woman in America: What does it mean to be invisible? How does the designation of invisibility affect her identity and sense of self?
