Slumpie sculpture installed on a wall by artist Jillian Mayer

Jillian Mayer

Jillian Mayer steeps her artistic practice in the verisimilitude of a generation that came of age in the 1980s. Mayer calls upon drawing, photography, video, installation, and performance to enact scenarios of apathy, dysfunction, and disillusionment. Indoctrinated into expectations of upward mobility, instant gratification, and the succinct finesse of a television sitcom, Mayer critiques the dissonance between her childhood optimism and the state of contemporary culture with an erudite playfulness.


Jillian Mayer was born in and lives and works in Miami, FL and received her BFA from Florida International University in 2007. Mayer has had solo exhibitions at Utah Museum of Fine Arts, Salt Lake City, UT and Bass Museum of Art, Miami, FL. She has participated in global exhibitions at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, Miami, FL; Girls’ Club Collection, Fort Lauderdale, FL; 2014 La Biennale de Montreal, Montreal, QC; Miami Dade College’s Museum of Art + Design, Miami, FL; Young Art Museum, Davie, FL; Farnsworth Art Museum, Rockland, ME; Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, IL; National Center for Contemporary Art, Russia among others. In 2010, the artist’s work was one of the 25 selections for the Guggenheim’s Youtube Play: A Biennial of Creative Video. As part of the Guggenheim’s Creative Video Biennial, the artist’s work was exhibited at The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice, Italy; Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao, Spain; and Deutsche Guggenheim, Berlin, Germany. Recent exhibitions include “Past Skin” at MoMA P.S.1 as well as solo exhibitions “Slumpies” at Perez Art Museum, Miami; The Occasional at LAX Art, Los Angeles; and Salt 9: Jillian Mayer at Utah Museum of Fine Arts, Salt Lake City. Mayer’s work is a part of important public and private collections, including the Perez Art Museum, Miami and The Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum, Miami.

Born in 1984 in Miami, Florida; lives and works in Miami, Florida.
