Jessica Snow is an artist, professor, and curator based in San Francisco. She earned a BA from UC Davis and a MFA from Mills College, and she also attended the Sorbonne and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Jessica is adjunct professor in the Studio Art and Art History departments at University of San Francisco. She's represented by Pastine Projects in San Francisco and Ideelart in London, and has curated several shows in the Bay Area, most recently 'Relics for the Future' at NIAD Art Center in Richmond.
Her current research into art futurology is informed by art history and speculative studies, and incorporates a wide-ranging inquiry into ancient art as well as theories about the art of the future. This year Jessica will be in residence at Fundación Valparaíso in Spain, L'Appartamento Napoli in Italy, and Château Orquevaux in France. While in residence, she'll be exploring in a new body of work the paradoxical correspondences between the past and future, and the implications these hold for present-day creative activity, recognizing in particular our deep connection to the natural world.
Previous series have been informed by her love of landscape architecture, mid-century architecture, graphic notation, and urban design. Most recently Jessica participated in 'form .AS. function' at Pastine Projects in San Francisco and 'Badass Color' at Le Pavé d'Orsay in Paris.
Moreover, Jessica has had several solo shows in the Bay Area, New York, Dallas, and Southern California, including the Riverside Art Museum. She’s been in group shows at the Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, Crocker Art Museum, Monterey Art Museum and the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art. Internationally Jessica has participated in many group shows in the Netherlands, Germany, France, Poland, Thailand, Australia, Uruguay, Argentina, and Ukraine, including the Biennale Internationale d'Art Non Objectif in Pont-de-Claix, France.
Jessica is the recipient of the Cadogan Fellowship Award, the Artadia Award in the Visual Arts Grant, and she was artist-ambassador to Montevideo, Uruguay as part of the US State Department's American Artists Abroad Program.
