Join visiting artist Lisa Jarrett at Missoula Art Museum for a FREE public artist talk, hosted in collaboration with MATRIX Press and University of Montana’s School of Visual and Media Arts. Jarrett will be creating a new series of prints during her residency in the Print Studio with MATRIX, October 2-6.
Jarrett exists and makes work within the African Diaspora. She lives in Portland, Oregon where she co-authors social practice projects and continues her 14+ year investigation into Black hair and its care in various forms. She is Associate Professor of Community and Context Arts at Portland State University’s School of Art + Design where she teaches classes in Art + Social Practice.
Jarrett works in social and visual forms. Her intersectional practice considers the politics of difference within a variety of settings including: schools, landscapes, fictions, racial imaginaries, studios, communities, museums, galleries, walls, mountains, mirrors, floors, rivers, and prisms.
She recently discovered that her primary medium is questions; the most urgent of which is: What will set you free?
Our Mission:The Missoula Underground is a hyper-local blog about the best the Missoula area has to offer: food/beverages, music, events, activities, local people and business.
Hyper-local means we don’t write about anything that isn't owned or locally managed or operated in the Missoula area. No corporate chains or businesses operated by investment groups from out of Montana.
We have a growing all-volunteer team of bloggers and contributors. We’re here because we care about our beloved Missoula area and want to showcase the best of what's here and what we love to do.
