Jason Lazarus is an artist exploring vision and
visibility.  His work includes a range of fluid methodologies: original,
found and appropriated images, text-as-image, animated GIFs, photo-derived
sculptures made collaboratively with the public, pigment-inks-as-image, live
archives, and public submission repositories, among others. This expanded
photographic practice seeks new approaches of inquiry, embodiment, and bearing
witness. Currently, he is an Assistant Professor of Art and Art History at
the University of South Florida.  Public lectures
include Yale University, International Center of Photography, Museum of
Contemporary Art Chicago; George Eastman Museum, California College of the
Arts, Columbia University (NYC), the Art Institute of Chicago, and
Artists/Designs/Citizen (US Pavilion, 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale) among
many others. Selected permanent collections include the Art Institute of
Chicago, SFMOMA, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, High Museum of Art, and
Museum of Contemporary Photography Chicago. Read more at jasonlazarus.com.
