The Rose Art Museum in Waltham, Massachusetts, announced today that Jennie C. Jones has won its Ruth Ann and Nathan Perlmutter Artist-in-Residence Award, which will support a residency for the New York–based artist on Brandeis University’s campus.
Jones is known for her sound-inspired sculptures. She terms her work “listening as a conceptual practice”—in other words, the use of sound as a reflection on how we hear and how we situate ourselves in space. Her work often takes its cues from Minimalism and jazz, combining the two in ways that aren’t immediately obvious.
As part of her residency, Jones will create a piece inspired by Louise Nevelson’s 1967 show at the Rose Art Museum, which is part of Brandeis. Her new sound work will be unveiled on April 29, when Brandeis students and faculty musicians will perform the work for the public.
