About Jen Everett: Could you dim the lights?

Artist and educator Jen Everett collects everyday photographs of Black life in the United States sourced from thrift stores and generations of images from her Midwestern and Southern family. She uses digital and analog mediums to reconfigure and recombine the images that attract her, by doubling or tripling a photograph, by isolating and amplifying a detail, or by collaging and piling up to create an effect of abundance. 

Throughout her process, Jen Everett remixes images of herself in conversation with the materials she collects to talk about Black life, kinship, and collective gathering.  Could you dim the lights? is her first solo museum presentation.
