Jeramy Turner is a self-taught artist, whose paintings are most often depictions of capitalists’ vulnerability. She has also a long history of running alternative cinemas, mostly in Chicago. Turner established the international radical feminist art collective, “SisterSerpents” in 1989, which Jesse Helms decried as a “hate group” against unborn children. Turner has taught and lectured on the conjuncture of political involvement in art and feminism at numerous universities and institutions in the US (Chicago, Boulder, Jersey City, Cornell).
Her work has been exhibited in London, Berlin, Vienna, Stockholm, Hamburg, Bergen, Norway, and at many alternative and university galleries throughout the US. Her work is represented in Vienna with Treadwell Galerie, and in New York with Limner Gallery. View Jeramy Turner’s work here: www.jeramyturner.com.
