Aaron Flint Jamison (born 1979) is an American conceptual artist and associate professor in the University of Washington School of Art + Art History + Design.[1] He works with various media including sculpture, publication, video, and performance.[2]

Life and work[edit]

Jamison was born in Billings, Montana. He received a B.A. from Trinity Western University, Vancouver, British Columbia, in 2002 and an M.F.A. from San Francisco Art Institute in 2006.[citation needed]

He co-founded the artist-run center Department of Safety (2002–2010) in Anacortes, Washington, and he was a co-founder of the art center Yale Union (YU) in Portland, Oregon.[3] "Yale Union (YU) operated as a non-profit exhibition, production, and community space since 2010 through 2020, when it completed the transfer of ownership of the land and building to the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation (NACF)."[4] "The transfer of the Yale Union to NACF to support the cultural continuance of Indigenous communities is unprecedented, a first,” said Joy Harjo, Mvskoke poet and former poet laureate of the United States.[5]

Jamison is the founder and editor-in-chief of Veneer Magazine, a subscription-based art publication.[6] Veneer is an 18-issue publication, the issues of which are, "lavishly produced, combining different paper stocks, and analogue and digital print techniques."[7]

Jamison's work is held in the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art.[8]
