Monique Jenkinson at the de Young

Monique Jenkinson at the de Young

My fellowship at the de Young Museum/Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco begins now!

All year I will be working at the de Young – researching, creating, performing – enjoying this incredible opportunity to expand the scope and context of my work, to interact with the museum’s collections and curators, to ignite new collaborations, and to bring some of my favorite past collaborators with me to the museum.

Starting Wed 2/15  I will begin a 2-week residency at the de Young’s Kimball Education Gallery. Wed 2/15 – Sun 2/26, from 3-5PM my studio working process will be free and open to the public. I hope you will join me as I explore, plot, write, discuss, choreograph, and practice.

The museum, my collaborators and I have an ambitious and exciting year planned.

First in line is new work I am creating and performing in dialogue with the exhibition The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: from the Sidewalk to the Catwalk and a potential performance in connection with The Cult of Beauty: the Victorian Avant Garde at the Legion of Honor.

I will keep you posted here, on my de Young Artist Fellow page, and through my other partner organization, Dancers’ Group.
