Jennifer Moon is a Los Angeles-based artist and self-described revolutionary, utilizing her interdisciplinary practice as a means towards personal, political, and artistic transformation. Moon’s life and work was radically altered following her nine-month incarceration at the Valley State Prison for Women in California, an experience that prompted a body of work examining not only the United States prison system, but also the nature of human relationships. In this work, Moon draws on legacies of political radicalism, uniquely combining them with elements of humor and fantasy.
Moon has exhibited at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, for Made in L.A. 2014 where she won the Mohn Public Recognition Award. She has had solo exhibitions at Equitable Vitrines, Los Angeles; Transmission Gallery, Glasgow, Scotland; Commonwealth & Council, Los Angeles; China Art Objects Galleries, Los Angeles; Richard Heller Gallery, Los Angeles; and Tunnel, New York. Moon also maintains a monthly radio show, Adventures Within, on KCHUNG and is the recipient of a 2013 CCF Fellowship for Visual Artists.
