Assistant Professor, Studio Arts


Jaret Vadera

Jaret Vadera's work explores the ways that images, ideologies, and technologies colonize our vision. Vadera hacks different visual systems, and rewires them to glitch, rupture, and open up parallel ways of seeing.

Vadera’s prints, collages, sculptures, videos, and installations have been exhibited and screened internationally at venues such as: Queens Museum, MoMA, the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center, Asia Society, Aga Khan Museum, Bhau Daji Lad Museum, and the Maraya Art Centre.

In parallel, Vadera has worked as a curator, programmer, and writer on projects that focus on art as a catalyst for cultural change.

Vadera completed his undergraduate education at the Ontario College of Art and Design University in Toronto and the Cooper Union School of Art in New York. He received his MFA in Painting and Printmaking from Yale University. He has lectured at: Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Yale University; Cornell University; Pratt Institute; Indian Institute of Technology; Tufts University; Brooklyn College; and Montclair State University, among others. 

Jaret Vadera lives and works between Montreal and New York.
