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.
