Jennie C. Jones works in a wide range of media, including drawing, sculpture, and sound installation. Formalist language of modern art history and conceptual legacy of avant-garde music history are central to her practice. Jones inquires into the parallels between the two, especially around abstraction and conceptualism, where she aims to examine and create a more inclusive discourse for modernist aesthetics.
She is the recipient of many awards and fellowships such as the William H. Johnson Prize (2008); Creative Capital Foundation Award (2008); Rema Hort Mann Foundation Award (2006); Pollock-Krasner Grant (2000); and the Wheeler Foundation Award (1999). She has also been an artist in residence at Belagio Study Center, Bellagio, Italy (2008); Smack Mellon Studio Program (2008); Liguria Study Center for the Arts, Genova, Italy (2004); Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, France (2002-2003); and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Residency World Trade Center, New York, New York (1999).
