VAS SOCIAL HOUR: SFAI Café » 6:30–7:30 pm
Join SFAI for a reception in the café before the lectures. The Walter and McBean Galleries are open until 7:30 pm on lecture nights.
Jaimie Warren’s newest works recreate Photoshopped collages created by anonymous users found on the Internet. The images pair art historical references with pop-culture icons, and dive into ever-shifting hierarchies of celebrity culture, race, and gender. Warren is also co-founder, with Matt Roche, of Whoop Dee Doo—a nonprofit faux public access television show inspired by Soul Train, Pee Wee’s Playhouse, the Carol Burnett Show, and Double Dare.
Warren’s photography was featured in the seminal publication SHOOT: Photography of the Moment (Rizzoli, 2009). Her projects have been exhibited internationally, including at Smith-Stewart and Steven Kasher, New York; Max Wigram, London; Showroom for Media and Moving Art, Rotterdam; Getsumin, Osaka; and Colette, Paris. Solo exhibitions include The Hole, New York, and White Flag Projects, St. Louis, with solo museum exhibitions held at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City, and the Miami Dade College Museum of Art & Design. Warren is the recipient of a Lighton International Artist Exchange Program grant, a Rocket Projects grant funded by the Charlotte Street Foundation and Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and a Teacher Recognition Award from the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program.
