AIR Artist Talk: Jackie Furtado
Wednesday January 31st, 6PM - 8PM | RSVP
Join us for a presentation of in-progress works by LATITUDE’s January Artist in Residence, Jackie Furtado. During this talk, Furtado will be discussing her newest project High Fever -- a collection of photographs that span a ten-year period with a direct focus on Furtado’s younger sister. Throughout her residency, Furtado will be contemplating the ways this collection can embrace the medium of photography rather than push against it. The series also seeks to document her subject’s transition from adolescence to young adulthood. Furtado will be producing work prints specifically for this event and invites the community to engage with this work in person.
Born in Bad Windsheim, Germany, Jackie Furtado was the product of young military divorcees. Arriving to the states shortly after, she split her time in southern California and the Chicago land area. Jackie received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2012. With her primary focus in fine art photography, she uses the medium to methodically disassemble and disparately reconstruct symbols of home spaces near and far. Her work has exhibited nationally and internationally with Of the Afternoon, Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, The Coat Check, Iceberg Projects, Vessel & Page, Higher Pictures, and Secret Dungeon. While in residence at Latitude, she will begin the production of artist-book, High Fever. High Fever is a collection of photographs that spans a ten year period with a direct focus on the artist’s youngest sister, Taylor Walker.
