Jamie Ross (1987, Canada) is a visual artist and filmmaker. Ross touches pre-legalization queer and trans musical and social cultures, as well as their interactions with non-human environments. Archival whistles, blown glass, carved wood, deathmasks, seashells, found photography, wax cylinder voice recordings, jugs of saliva-fermented juice, harmonic folk singing, and transparent mulberry paper are abiding fascinations of Jamie’s multi-disciplinary practice.


Ross has recently been shown at Noon Projects (Los Angeles), The Mistake Room (Los Angeles), ARTEXTE (Montreal), Olga Korper Gallery (Toronto), and The Plumb (Toronto). Ross has conducted residencies at The Banff Centre (Canada), El Museo de Arte Moderno Castro (Chile), La Usurpadora (Colombia), El Museo de Arte de Morelia (Mexico) and at Lugar a Dudas (Colombia).


Jamie’s video works have been screened and installed in exhibitions in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, England, France, Haiti, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, Sweden, the United States, and throughout Canada. Recent work was presented at the Plug In ICA (Winnipeg, Canada), Lugar a Dudas (Cali, Colombia), and the Momenta Biennale (Montréal, Québec).


Ross has been awarded grants and prizes from the Canada Council for the Arts, Les offices jeunesse internationaux du Québec, the Conseil des arts et lettres du Québec. Ross is the recipient of the Audience Award for Best Short Film from the largest documentary film festival in North America, Hot Docs. Ross received a MFA in Interdisciplinary Studio Art from UCLA in 2023, and a Fulbright Scholarship from 2021-2024.
