From Heritage Space:

Heritage Space is pleased to invite you to the Lecture and Discussion with artist – curator – researcher Jennifer Vanderpool from UC Santa Barbara (Los Angeles, United States). This program is a part of Expert’s Section – MAP 2019, only for artists in the project and representatives from Heritage Space’s partners.

* CONTENT:

Jennifer Vanderpool is a Los Angeles based social practice artist. Jennifer will discuss how she developed her practice drawing on her immigrant family’s working-class story as a lens to query the social construction of place based on the influences of history, race, class, and labor. She will explore how her work moved beyond media and installation art to community-specific and site-responsive exhibitions in the process of becoming a social practice artist.

* ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

Jennifer Vanderpool is a Los Angeles based new genre artist who works across mediums to reveal relationships between physical landscapes and the unseen forces that shape them, knitting together narratives about forgotten institutions, people, and communities. Her 2017 exhibitions included Super Natural, which opened at the National Centre for Contemporary Art in Moscow, Russia, and traveled to Nepravilnyi Prikus, Simferopol. She exhibited Flores Para El Trueque initially with Mercadito & Mentidero, Bogotá, Colombia, and then with No Lugar – Arte Contemporáneo and La Huerta y La Maquina, Quito, Ecuador. Vanderpool’s video work was included in the 2017 Festival M.A.R.S. | Music & Art ReSound, Los Angeles and Twenty/20 at Edward Cella Art+Architecture, Los Angeles. She has been awarded exhibition funding from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, Kunstrådet: Danish Arts Council, Kulturrådet: Swedish Arts Council, and Malmö Stad as well as a National Endowment for the Arts Challenge America grant for her community art outreach work and a National Endowment for the Arts: Art Works grant for her curatorial work. Vanderpool has been a Visiting Lecturer at UC Santa Barbara, UC Los Angeles, Otis College of Art and Design, Universiteit van Amsterdam, and Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Bogotá. Recently, Jennifer Vanderpool has presented “Garment Girl’ – the solo exhibition in Heritage Space in May 2018.
