Jason J Ferguson uses humor, the uncanny, and an absurdist voice to create public interventions, performance, video, and sculptural objects. Ferguson’s psychologically charged installations have been said to raise issues of artistic control, consciousness, and mortality. He received his BFA from Towson University and continued his studies at the University of Delaware where he completed his MFA in 2006. Ferguson’s work has been exhibited internationally including venues in Tokyo, Japan; Berlin, Germany; São Paulo, Brazil; Tirana, Albania; Kolderveen, the Netherlands; as well as national venues in New York, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Missouri, Virginia, and he recently filled two rooms at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. His artwork has been featured in publications including the 3D Additivist Cookbook, SCULPTURE magazine, Artifizz, the Chicago Art Review, and more. Ferguson currently resides in Metro Detroit where he is an Associate Professor in the School of Art & Design at Eastern Michigan University.
