Jennifer Burris is a curator and writer based in Mexico City where she is director of Athenée Press. Her research orients around three linked concerns. What are the political and social implications of formal structure, particularly in relationship to legacies of land art and minimalism/post-minimalism? In what ways does contemporary art practice intersect with evolving epistemologies of knowledge creation, specifically in regards to natural sciences and medical technologies? And how can long-term collaborations with artists facilitate the repositioning of art historical narratives via strategies of radical archiving?
A graduate of Princeton University, the University of Cambridge, and the Whitney Independent Study Program, she has organized exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia, The Kitchen in New York City, and Haverford College in Pennsylvania. Forthcoming projects include a solo presentation of Beverly Buchanan’s work at the Brooklyn Museum’s Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art (co-curated with artist Park McArthur) and a series of site-specific sound performances in the town of Marfa, Texas.
As a writer, she contributes to publications including Revista Código, Afterall, and Bomb Magazine and has published academic articles in The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism, Studies in French Cinema, and catalogues for the artists Brian Weil and Alexandra Navratil.
