Jason Baerg: Selected Works from Tawâskweyâw

On view September 30–October 17
Mason Gross Galleries

Rutgers is proud to present this solo exhibition by Jason Baerg, MFA alum, in the second iteration of our annual exhibition series featuring contemporary Indigenous artists. Baerg, a Red River Métis and member of the Métis Nations of Ontario, uses laser cutting as a personal means to breathe new life into his nimble configurations, considered some of the first laser-cut paintings in the world.

The selections on view at Mason Gross School of the Arts are key contributions Baerg has made in the first 25 years of his artistic practice. As a first-generation new media artist, Baerg has forged fearlessly towards unique ways to utilize emergent 2D, 3D, interactive, immersive, and fabrication technologies. Themes in his work include Community, Ritual, Urban Migration, Cree Cosmology, Native Relationality, Survivance, An Indigenized Anthropocene, Language Revitalization and Indigenous Futurisms.
