LOS ANGELES, CA.-The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, presents Jennifer Bornstein, through January 9, 2006. Since the late 1990s, Los Angeles–based artist Jennifer Bornstein has used serialized image-making to record her encounters with people engaged in the public and private routines of everyday life. In Bornstein’s first solo museum show, MOCA presents a body of copper-plate etchings of people the artist has observed or studied, including her roommate, friends, students, librarians, a projectionist, a fellow bus rider, and several cultural figures. In her photographs, films, sculptures, and most recently, intaglio printing, she has combined the documentary, representational, and performative possibilities of these media with her interest in the interactions of people with one another and the objects within the images—and in how that interaction can be further reflected in the encounter between the spectator and her artworks.

Jennifer Bornstein features 60 etchings made with a pre-photographic method—intaglio printing—from an ongoing project the artist began in 2003, as well as additional new works produced on the occasion of the exhibition. It is the first installment of the MOCA Focus series, dedicated to presenting work by emerging Southern California artists.

MOCA Focus: Jennifer Bornstein is made possible by generous endowment support from The Nimoy Fund for New and Emerging Artists and from the Fran and Ray Stark Foundation Fund to Support the Work of Emerging Artists.

Major support is also provided by a multi-year grant from The James Irvine Foundation.
