Later this spring, the Varley Art Gallery of Markham will open "two truths and a lie," Jessica Thalmann’s first solo exhibition in a public art gallery. In this Lunch and Learn, Thalmann will discuss the various bodies of work on display and the ways in which she uses manipulation techniques to reveal the porous boundaries that exist between the image and the object.
Jessica Thalmann is an artist and educator currently based in Toronto and New York City. She received an MFA in Advanced Photographic Studies from ICP-Bard College and a BFA in Visual Arts from York University. Her work has been shown in group exhibitions at Aperture Foundation, International Centre for Photography (New York), VIVO Media Arts Centre (Vancouver), Museum of Contemporary Art, Harbourfront Centre, Angell Gallery, Gallery TPW, Art Spin, and the Varley Art Gallery of Markham. She has been an artist in residence at the Banff Center for Arts and Creativity, Alberta, Canada, and at the Southern California Institute of Architecture in Los Angeles, California, USA.
The artist would like to thank the Canada Council for the Arts for their support.
