Jemison uses time-based, photographic, and discursive platforms to examine “progress” and its alternatives. Her work examines African-American culture in relationship to modernism and conceptual practice. Increasingly the artist has turned toward collective readings of black historical literature as a strategy in her investigations. Building on a practice that places African American history and culture at the intersection of conceptual art, Jemison's work considers how inherited visual strategies both limit and expand our access to history more broadly.
