Join the Renaissance Society’s Executive Director and Chief Curator, Solveig Øvstebø, for an introduction to New York-based artist Jennifer Packer’s first solo institutional exhibition. Free and open to the public.
Based in observation, improvisation, and memory, Packer’s canvases are intimate and contemplative, rendered in loose strokes and strong color. Like the exhibition title, the juxtaposition of these various modes of representation and production point to possibilities both bodily and emotional, fragile and strong. Her works exhibit a rigorous engagement with art history as well as a highly personal response to how black bodies navigate within the present political landscape.
