Saint Kate — Artist Talk: Jill Sebastian

Jan 7


Join us virtually for a discussion with Milwaukee-based artist Jill Sebastian!

Sebastian will discuss her current exhibition at Saint Kate, Preoccupations, a solo show that spans across two Saint Kate galleries to address ongoing preoccupations throughout her life, both material and historical. Preoccupations articulates the artist’s own experiences of recurrent historical events as a way of investigating our shared cultural, social, and public spaces. Through her bold exploration of artistic media, Sebastian’s works alter our understanding of firmly-entrenched visual concepts such as perspective, while also engaging our subliminal associations with materials.

Please get in touch with Saint Kate Curator, Samantha Timm, with any questions at

Sebastian is the recipient of several awards including the National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship (1985) and the Visual Art Lifetime Achievement Award (2016).
