Jessica Valoris is a multidisciplinary installation artist. Inspired by Afrofuturism, metaphysics, and historical memory, Jessica builds installations and experiences that are sacred, intentional, and activated. Weaving together sound collage, painting, sculpture, and facilitated ritual, Jessica creates portals: immersive environments that serve as a catalyst for collective healing and create space for affirmative self-expression and re-definition.
Informed by her Black American and Jewish ancestry, Valoris holds an emphatically multidimensional worldview which is reflected in her vividly eclectic visuals and dynamic installations. Jessica’s interactive installation, “Phone Home” debuted at the George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center in Austin, TX. Her interactive “Xigga Project” has been featured at the Anacostia Arts Center. Her most recent portrait series, “Dope and Different” has been featured at Culture Coffee Too, Afrotectopia NYC, and Harvard University’s Black in Design Conference.
