Tomashi Jackson: Love Rollercoaster
September 26th - December 27th
Wexner Center for the Arts
The Ohio State University
For Love Rollercoaster, artist Tomashi Jackson is creating five new paintings centered around themese of voter disenfranchisment and suppression in Ohio's Black communities.
The paintings examine the state's troubling history with these issues and its particular challenges in the present political moment. Photographs, local and national campaign ephemera, details from conversations with Ohio citizens, and planes of bright color are the foundational materials Jackson uses in creating these compelling works.
