On View presents images from noteworthy exhibitions
 

CONCEPTUAL WORKS by Jennie C. Jones provide a visual and aural experience. The Hudson, N.Y.-based artist considers perceptions of sound through painting, sculpture, and installations, works rooted in modernism and minimalism. “Jennie C. Jones: Dynamics,” her new solo show at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, “addresses the objecthood of painting, sound as ephemeral content, and the graphic forms of music notation.” Architectural felt and acoustic panels and a sound installation are on view. The new body of work was made in direct response to the architecture of the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed museum. CT

 

“Jennie C. Jones: Dynamics” is on view at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, N.Y., from Feb. 4–May 2, 2022
