"My participation in the Digital Arts and New Media MFA program takes the form of courses in critical theories of representation for new electronic and on-line art projects. In this way, I hope to help graduate students develop a conceptual framework for their research projects grounded in theories and histories of modern and contemporary art."
Jennifer Gonzalez writes about contemporary art with an emphasis on installation art, digital art and activist art. She is interested in understanding the strategic use of space (exhibition space, public space, virtual space) by contemporary artists and by cultural institutions such as museums. More specifically, she has focused on the representation of the human body and its relation to discourses of race and gender.
