Jen Everett

2021–22 DocX Archive Lab Fellow

Jen Everett, currently based in Saint Louis, Missouri, is an artist from Southfield, Michigan. She received an MFA from Washington University in St. Louis, where she was a Chancellor’s Graduate Fellow in the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts, and earned a Bachelor of Architecture from Tuskegee University. Broadly, she is interested in the myriad ways Black people continue to produce and transmit knowledge in excess of formal structures. Her practice moves between lens- and time-based media, installation, and writing. Everett’s work has been shown nationally and internationally at art spaces including Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, Krannert Art Museum, Kunsthall Stavanger, Seattle University’s Hedreen Gallery, and SPRING/BREAK Art Show in New York. She has been an artist in residence at the Vermont Studio Center, Atlantic Center for the Arts, and ACRE, and her work is in the collection of the Museum of Contemporary Photography at Columbia College Chicago.
