Curator of the Film/Video Studio Program
Jennifer Lange, who joined the Wexner Center in 2001, is Curator of the Film/Video Studio Program, which offers in-kind post-production support to filmmakers and video artists. The program hosts approximately 15 residencies each year with artists coming around the world to work on projects ranging from documentaries to gallery-based installations to experimental video. Through the residency program, she has worked with hundreds of artists, including Deborah Stratman, Rineke Dijkstra, Phil Collins, Paul Chan, Sowon Kwon, Jennifer Reeves, Sam Green and Josiah McElheny. In the winter of 2007 she organized the first-ever solo museum exhibition of Sadie Benning’s, including paintings, sculpture, and video. In addition to leading the Film/Video Studio Program, Jennifer curates the monthly screening programs in The Box, the Wexner’s dedicated exhibition space for short video projects, for which she has organized monthly programs by such artists as Pierre Huyghe, Joe Sola, and Anna Gaskell, among many others. She’s served as a judge for both the Journal of Short Film, a quarterly DVD publication, and the Columbus International Film Festival. Prior to her work at the Wexner, Jennifer worked at Donald Young Gallery in Chicago. She has an M.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a B.A. from Connecticut College in New London, CT.
