Grants for Visual Artists
Through an interdisciplinary investigation of organizing systems (social systems, institutional structures, power relations, scientific theories, emotional frameworks), Jennifer Moon’s work entangles life with art to reveal how these systems are inscribed, transmitted, performed, and perpetuated through bodies (human, nonhuman, material, immaterial). Playfully pushing unlikely configurations—a book of obsessive crushes in the style of Dungeon & Dragons Monster Manual; approaching the topic of incest with her family in a virtual world; repurposing Disney songs to inspire revolution—Moon’s work reconfigures our relationship to power, reignites the social and political imaginaries, and stimulates change.
