Jennifer Packer: Tenderheaded

Upcoming March 2 - July 8, 2018
Gerald S. and Sandra Fineberg Gallery

Based in observation, improvisation, and memory, this selection of recent work by Jennifer Packer (b. 1984) presents paintings of funerary bouquets and intimate portraits. Pointing 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.

This exhibition is organized by The Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago and curated by Solveig Øvstebø.
