Jaret Vadera is an interdisciplinary artist and cultural producer whose work explores how different social, technological, biological, and cognitive processes shape and control the ways that we see the world around and within us. Vadera's practice is influenced by cognitive science, post/de-colonial theory, science fiction, Buddhist philosophy, as well as the study of impossible objects. Vadera completed his undergraduate education at the Ontario College of Art and Design University in Toronto and the Cooper Union School of Art in New York. He received his Master of Fine Arts in Painting and Printmaking from Yale University. He currently teaches in the Graduate Art History Department at Montclair State University, the School of Visual, Media and Performing Arts at Brooklyn College, and in the Social Science and Cultural Studies Department at Pratt Institute.
