Jennie C. Jones: Compilation2016
Through exhaustive research and imaginative talent, Jennie C. Jones brings to light the unlikely parallels that emerged between the visual arts and jazz during the social and cultural upheavals in the late 1950s. A resistance to tradition in favor of experimentation gave rise to an avant-garde in the visual arts and in jazz. These imprints exist as tangible markers of social evolution and political strivings. The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston is pleased to present the mid-career survey "Jennie C. Jones: Compilation," which chronicles Jones's practice over an eleven-year period and includes the artist's iconic Acoustic Paintings, early works on paper, sculpture, and sound works. The exhibition will debut a suite of new Acoustic Paintings along with site-specific installations created for her presentation at CAMH.
