Steffani Jemison: “Plant You Now, Dig You Later”

“I am an interdisciplinary artist who uses time-based, photographic, and discursive platforms to examine ‘progress’ and its alternatives. My current work uses transparency and opacity as material and metaphor, with a particular focus on the politics of privacy. Plant You Now, Dig You Later is a black vernacular phrase meaning ‘see you soon;’ it connects my interests in language, the archive, faith, and the future.” – Steffani Jemison, 2018 




Steffani Jemison’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including solo exhibitions and commissioned performances at MASS MoCA, Nottingham Contemporary, Jeu de Paume, the Museum of Modern Art, LAXART, the New Museum of Contemporary Art, and others. Her work is in the public collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, the Brooklyn Museum, the Studio Museum in Harlem, and Kadist. Jemison has completed many artist residencies and fellowships, including a Radcliffe Institute Fellowship at Harvard University, the Rauschenberg Residency, the Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program, Studio Museum in Harlem AIR, the Core Program at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Jemison holds an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BA in Comparative Literature from Columbia University. She is an Assistant Professor at Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University and lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
