Jennifer Vanderpool

“The subject matter in The Modern Series emphasizes the industrial, architectural, and interior design of Mid-century Modernism, once manufactured in the post-prosperity communities that I investigate in my ongoing disinvested cities exhibitions. I create these compositions by abstracting and repurposing tourism, fashion, and design advertisements to create imaginary realism compositions evoking Modern culture.”

A native of the Mahoning Valley in Northeast Ohio, working in Los Angeles and the Midwest, Jennifer is a social practice artist, writer, and curator who investigates traumas in post-prosperity communities and the lives of the working-class.

Jennifer’s work has been featured in recent solo exhibitions at the National Centre for Contemporary Art in Moscow, Russia, and Heritage Space in Hà Nội, Việt Nam. Her work was included in the 2020-21 exhibition Transformations: Living Room->Flea Market->Museum->Art at the Wende Museum and Cold War Archive in Culver City, CA, and is currently featured in a solo exhibition at Museo de Arte, Universidad San Francisco de Quito, Quito, Ecuador.

She recently spoke about her exhibitions at the United Nations Việt Nam headquarters and as a visiting artist at Universiteit van Amsterdam, Virginia Tech University, and Universidad de Los Andes, Bogotá.

Her work has been awarded exhibition funding from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, Ohio Arts Council, Kunstrådet: Danish Arts Council, and Kulturrådet: Swedish Arts Council. The National Endowment for the Arts awarded her co-curated exhibition, Manifesto, a 2018 Artworks grant. Currently, she is a US-UK Fulbright Artist Fellow at the University of Liverpool in the UK.
