About Jordan Lee Thompson

Jordan Lee Thompson is an art worker and educator based out of Northeast Minneapolis. He works in a variety of mediums including drawing, painting, performance, installation, video projection and other new media to explore how people interact with each other, the ways in which that interaction fails or is systematically inhibited, and the physical spaces in which that interaction happens or fails to happen. His work includes painting people onto mirrors, fabricating crowds, dating an imaginary girl, dancing with projections of people at a dance club, asking people to step on his self-portraits, mailing intimate letters to strangers, producing a soundtrack for lonely people to pretend they're less lonely, and drawing a gallery opening on the walls of a gallery. His professional practice includes both making art and educating youth in creative arts, media production, service learning and technology in afterschool and summer school workshops. Jordan holds a BFA in Painting, a BA in Art History and Arts Management, and a certificate in Museum Studies from the University of Iowa.
