Jessica Thalmann is an artist, curator and educator currently based in Toronto and New York City. She received a MFA in Advanced Photographic Studies from ICP-Bard College and a BFA in Visual Arts from York University. She has shown at various venues in Toronto, Vancouver and New York City including the Art Gallery of Mississauga, Gallery TPW, Angell Gallery, Art Spin, VIVO Media Arts Center, Aperture Foundation, International Centre of Photography, Photoville, Camera Club of New York and Printed Matter’s New York Art Book Fair.
As a whole Thalmann’s photo-based practice attempts to unravel conventional understandings of photographic images with its material implications as it relates to urban architectural spaces. Her recent work uses both her own images and archival documents to rethink the meaning of truth, history, memory, and loss as they relate to utopian modes of architecture.
