Introduction

Jessica Stockholder (born 1959) studied painting at the University of Victoria in Victoria, B.C., Canada, and received an MFA from Yale University. She is a pioneer of installation art, known for blending painting, sculpture, and the display environment into a single piece of artwork. Stockholder is inspired by the relationships she perceives between colors and objects in her everyday visual environment and often combines consumer products and household items with painting and sculpture as a means of exploring aesthetic value and narrative in the same gesture.

Stockholder's work has been exhibited internationally at institutions such as Dia Center for the Arts, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; MoMA P.S. 1, New York; Kunsthallen Brants, Odense; SITE Santa Fe; the Venice Biennale; Kunstmuseum St. Gallen; and Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris. Her works can be found in the collections of the Minneapolis Institute of Art; Art Institute of Chicago; British Museum, London; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, among others. Stockholder is currently the faculty chair of the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Chicago.

Jessica Stockholder began making prints at Two Palms in 1998.  Her monotypes can be found in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, and the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, FL.
