Jennie C. Jones (BFA 1991) was recently profiled by the New York Times [15] in a piece that highlights her creative practice, which incorporates the use of acoustic panels in abstract painting. Inspired by punk rock, the history of Modernism, and Black sonic avant-garde, Jones creates works that explore the relationship between hearing and seeing in shows like Dynamics [16], her solo exhibition currently on display at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. She was also recently interviewed about the show on the Artnet podcast The Art Angle [17]. “I feel like my work is more courageous now,” Jones told the Times. “I feel like I’m in my own skin.”
