Scenes From A Pause

May 26–July 8, 2017


Friday, May 26, 6–9 PM

321 Gallery presents Scenes From A Pause, a solo exhibition of works by Jenni Crain. Jenni Crain’s work draws from architecture and universal design to speak to the conditions of a given or perceived space. Her sculptural works refer not only to the environment of exhibition itself but also recall emotional associations to moments and memories of elapsed experience. Crain’s allusions to time, be it the past, present or future, reflect upon and trace our intersecting and evolving relationships with place, perspective, and personal histories.

Jenni Crain (B. 1991, New York) is a Brooklyn-based artist and curator. Crain’s work was most recently a part of Tapping, an exhibition organized amongst the six participating artists at KANSAS, New York, NY (2016). Solo exhibitions include Upon Reflection at Y Gallery, New York, NY (2015), and Bent To Its Own Image at The Java Project, Brooklyn, NY (2015). Crain is the co-founder and co-director of Topless, a seasonal gallery based in Rockaway Beach, NY since summer 2014. Crain’s recent curatorial projects include exhibitions at Roberta Pelan, Toronto, ON; Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY; and Shanaynay, Paris, FR. Crain will participate in the upcoming residency session at Rupert in Vilnius, Lithuania later in 2017.
