E. Jane ’12, an Art History major with minors in English and World Literatures and Philosophy, will exhibit their work at MoMA PS1 as part of The Studio Museum in Harlem’s annual Artist-in-Residence exhibition. In addition, Jane will participate in an online Roundtable on Monday, December 7 from 7:00-8:00 p.m to discuss their work completed throughout the residency program.

This Longing Vessel will feature new work by the 2019–20 cohort of the Studio Museum’s foundational residency program, artists E. Jane (b. 1990, Bethesda, MD), Naudline Pierre (b. 1989, Leominster, MA), and Elliot Reed (b. 1992, Milwaukee, WI). With practices spanning new media, performance, and painting, this collaborative exhibition enacts a radical intimacy—a vessel to hold and be held by. In longing, the works shown here find the intersection between queerness and blackness as a waypoint: one to yearn from, to reach toward, to leap beyond. This Longing Vessel troubles and excites ways of seeing, seeking new language for the building of extraordinary futures.

Organized by Legacy Russell, Associate Curator, Exhibitions at The Studio Museum in Harlem; with Yelena Keller, Curatorial Assistant, The Studio Museum in Harlem; and Josephine Graf, Curatorial Assistant, MoMA PS1.
