In this artist talk and conversation, Jaret Vadera will discuss key arcs, propositions, and questions guiding his practice.
Jaret Vadera is a transdisciplinary artist whose work explores how different social, technological, and cognitive processes shape and control the ways that we understand the world around and within us. Vadera's practice is influenced by cognitive science, post/decolonial theory, science fiction, Buddhist philosophy, and the study of impossible objects.
Vadera's paintings, prints, photographs, videos, and installations have been exhibited widely at venues such as: the Queens Museum, MoMA, the Smithsonian APAC, Asia Society Museum, Aga Khan Museum, Maraya Art Centre, and the Bhau Daji Lad Museum.
Vadera completed his undergraduate education at OCAD University and Cooper Union School of Art. He received his MFA in Painting and Printmaking from Yale University in New Haven.
