Jordan Nassar, b. 1985 New York City.
Nassar’s work addresses the intersection of craft, language, history, (geo)politics, and technology. Focusing on the intricacies of identity and cultural participation, as an Arab-Polish-American, Nassar treats traditional craft more as medium than topic, using contemporary visual language to examine subjects such as cultural heritage, ownership, exchange and absorption; geography, politics, and orientalism; symbology, codes and language systems; superstition and religious belief; contemporary computerized visuals; and representational and geometric abstraction. He currently works as Coordinator of Fairs and Editions for Printed Matter Inc. in New York City.
