Jenna Crowder is a writer, editor, and interdisciplinary artist working in publication, installation, criticism, and curation as modes of public practice. She is interested in writing as a visual practice and language as a site of collaboration and performance. Her writing has appeared in such publications as The Brooklyn Rail, Art Papers, Temporary Art Review, BURNAWAY, Boston Art Review, The Rib, Tupelo Quarterly, and Liminalities: a journal of performance studies among other places, in addition to artist catalogs and anthologies.
Jenna was the Co-Founding Editor of The Chart, an arts journal that celebrated slow publishing, regionally-specific critical artistic dialogue, and IRL conversation as a form of publishing. The Chart received grants from The Kindling Fund, the Maine Arts Commission, the Rabkin Foundation, and the Ellis-Beauregard Foundation to support the journal and its programming, which included a Visiting Artist Lecture Series, Critics-in-Residence, and annual publications in addition to its online platform.
Jenna received her MFA in Writing at Vermont College of Fine Arts and her BFA in Sculpture (minor in Art History) from Maine College of Art & Design.
