Jennifer Packer MFA ’12 Debuts Solo Exhibition at MOCA

In August 2021, Jennifer Packer MFA ’12 debuted her first West Coast solo exhibition Every Shut Eye Ain’t Sleep, Packer’s debut West Coast solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA). The exhibition gathers 25 new and recent works that explore the limits of painting and representation through portraits, still lifes, and charcoal drawings. Packer created most of the work in the last year, compelled to process the suspension and horror of 2020 into elegiac mood studies that wrestle with the collective sense of exhaustion, fear, and longing.
