Jason Kofke understands a culture by what it has abandoned, discarded, or abrogated. He uses art as salvage ethnography to attribute meaning to events of the past. His projects empathize with communal historical experiences and attempt to make sense of the present through a re-exploration of a common history.

Kofke is a recipient of a 2011 Artadia Grant and a 2009 Idea Capital Grant. He has been awarded residencies at ARCUS Project in Moriya, Japan, The Arctic Circle and Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Artprint residence in Barcelona, Spain, Long Stories Project in Perm, Russia, Living Walls Conference in Atlanta, USA, the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou, China, and the Elizabeth Foundation in New York City. Kofke’s work has been exhibited at the A4 Center for Contemporary Asian Art, Sydney, Australia, the Telfair Museum, Savannah, USA, the Brest Museum in Jacksonville, Fl, Jack the Pelican Gallery in Brooklyn, NYC, FLUX projects in Atlanta, USA, Mason Murer Fine Art Gallery in Atlanta, USA, The Elizabeth Foundation in NYC, Fuse Gallery, NYC, USA, The Gallery of China Academy of Art in Hangzhou, China, Arthouse Gallery in Brooklyn, NYC, Artspace Gallery in Richmond, USA, and RED Gallery in Savannah, USA. He earned his BFA in 2005 and MFA in 2008 from Savannah College of Art and Design. Kofke’s studio is based in Atlanta, USA, but he travels frequently in overseas residency programs and arts projects.
