JENNIFER BRANDON : JAY DEFEO
January 17–March 11, 2018
Mills College Art Museum
Opening Reception: Wednesday, January 17, 2018, 6:00-8:00 PM
This exhibition presents new work by Bay Area photographer Jennifer Brandon, shown in conjunction with rarely seen photocopies and photographs by the ground-breaking visual artist Jay DeFeo. Featuring approximately 40 works, including photograms, photographic collages, photocopies, and gelatin silver prints, this exhibition explores each artist’s interest in the intersection of physical materials and photographic process. The resulting images appear strange on a cerebral level, yet intuitively familiar in their evocation of natural phenomena and our physical connection to the things around us.
Jennifer Brandon : Jay DeFeo is supported through the generosity of the Agnes Cowles Bourne Fund for Special Exhibitions and the Joan Danforth Art Museum Endowment, with special thanks to Leah Levy and The Jay DeFeo Foundation.
