Jen Mann: Girls on Film
Jen Mann (born in 1987) is a Canadian artist best known for her large-scale hyper-realistic portraiture. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in printmaking from OCAD University (Toronto, Canada). As a conceptual artist, she mainly focuses on the idea of self in a post-Internet world. Influenced by social media and popular culture, Mann riffs on what it means to be, and how we understand ourselves through the lens of the corporate gaze. Working in many mediums, including painting, film, sculpture, and sound, she is mostly known for her large-scale portraits. The elaborate meta-worlds-within-worlds she creates take on a life of their own, and question our identities, reality, and life as they are seen from the perspective of American corporate media. Her work has been shown in Canada and internationally, most notably at Neubacher Shor Contemporary (Toronto, Canada), Cordesa Fine Art (Los Angeles, United States) and Arsham Fieg Gallery (New York, United States).
The tickets for the exhibition also includes access to the exhibition entitled Chimeria.
