Meet the Artist

Joan Jonas

During her 2010 FWM residency, multimedia and performance artist Joan Jonas used a free-association method to create a personal, eccentric visual language, bringing her interpretation of Dante’s The Divine Comedy to life while allowing her viewers to experience the resulting work without any preconceptions. Both the medieval era of Dante and our own time, she noted, are periods of extraordinary change.
