Please join us for reception in celebration of Jennie C. Jones: Constant Structure opening at The Arts Club on March 19, 2020 at 6 pm. This event is free and open to all.
Lingering at the intersection of music theory, painting, and sound, Jennie C. Jones draws on the jazz composition concept of “constant structure” for her exhibition here. The term refers to a consecutive chord progression that models for Jones a sense of cohesion and difference. Like the intervals of jazz then, Jones’s new acoustic panel paintings, works on paper, and site-specific gestures, hit moments of dissonance and harmony through serial repetition and variation. For The Arts Club, Jones further expands her characteristic visual vocabulary into the parameters of the room, accenting the architecture with her minimal gestures and references to her sonic memory.
