Russo Lee Gallery is pleased to welcome Lisa Jarrett to our roster of represented artists.
Lisa Jarrett is an artist and educator. She is Associate Professor of Community and Context Arts at Portland State University. Jarrett exhibits nationally and co-founded/co-directs KSMoCA (Dr. Martin Luther King Jr School Museum of Contemporary Art); the Harriet Tubman Middle School Center for Expanded Curatorial Practice; and Art 25: Art in the Twenty-fifth Century. Her intersectional (and often collaborative) 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 lenses.
