About the Show

The first Kinsey Institute Juried Art Show was held in 2006 at the Kinsey Institute Gallery. After three years, the exhibition had outgrown the space available in Morrison Hall, prompting the move to the Indiana University School of Fine Arts Gallery in 2009. Artworks shown in previous juried shows are available at the links below:

Video and audio interviews with Jennifer Cahn are available on the Media page.

About the Juror

Art curator for 20 years, Dr. Jennifer Cahn has worked in museums in California, New York, Oregon, and Texas, as well as St. Petersburg, Russia. Her Ph.D. in Art History from the University of Southern California focused on Russian avant-garde art, specifically the fate of a revolution-era abstract art collection now housed at the Russian Museum. From 1999-2004, as curator of exhibitions for ExhibitsUSA, a non-profit traveling exhibition organization in Kansas City, Cahn traveled throughout the United States organizing a broad range of fine art, folk art, historic, and cultural programs. After a stint teaching art history and museum theory at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Cahn became curator in 2006 for the Brownsville Museum of Fine Art, which recently relocated to a new, 17,000-square foot facility near the Texas-Mexico border. At the BMFA, Cahn has curated numerous exhibitions of contemporary Mexican-American and Mexican art, as well as exhibitions highlighting the museumís beautiful collection of late 19th-early 20th-century south Texas and north Mexico art. Exhibitions include one-person shows on Luis Jimenez, Ray Smith, and Jose Salazar. Cahn currently lives with her historian husband and two daughters in Brownsville, where they revel in the miracles of homegrown mango and grapefruit (the papaya tree, unfortunately, did not survive Hurricane Dolly).
