Jeremy Drummond

Jeremy Drummond was born in Edmonton, Alberta and grew-up in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. In 2005, he joined the Department of Art & Art History to develop a program in Digital/Media Art as an extension of the Studio Art curriculum. Jeremy’s interest in teaching at the University to Richmond stems from a desire to work with students who are creative, interdisciplinary thinkers, capable of channeling complex ideas through a variety of media. He now serves as Chair of the Department of Art & Art History at the University of Richmond and divides his time between Richmond, Philadelphia, and Toronto.

As a professor, Jeremy is interested in Contemporary Art as a mechanism to critically examine the dominant culture in which we live. Rooted in single-channel film and video, Jeremy’s practice extends into areas such as photography, sound, printed matter, and multimedia installation. While his early performance-based work deals with issues of gender and sexuality, his work over the past ten years involves broader explorations of mass media, manufactured landscapes, the prison industrial complex, and other forms of control in contemporary culture.
