What's it all about?

Experience the wit and satire in Jean Lowe’s work as you visit Your Place in the Multiverse. The exhibition is a survey of Lowe’s work drawn from the past twenty years. It highlights many of her most important installations as well as new work. Lowe’s installations are primarily comprised of household craft media such as papier-mâché and paint coupled with a sophisticated, literary use of language and a loose painterly style. Room-sized and incorporating artist-made furniture, rugs, and even a piano, these beautifully staged installations are often overwhelming, playing both on sensory overload and the irony of abundance as presented daily in our consumer culture.

Your Place in the Multiverse is organized by the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art, Utah State University. Support for the exhibition is generously provided by the Joan B. Rehnborg Foundation and The Segerstrom Foundation.


About the Artist

Jean Lowe creates art imbued with a proprietary blend of wry wit, visual seduction, and incisive cultural critique. Working in sculpture, painting, and installation, Lowe draws us into elaborate reconstructions of our own value systems, empowering, entertaining, and implicating us all at once. Lowe received her MFA from University of California, San Diego, where she was also a Lecturer until 2008. She has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City; the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego; and the Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati. A survey of Lowe’s work, Your Place in the Multiverse: Jean Lowe, was recently on view at the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art, Utah State University, and will open at the Laguna Art Museum, Laguna Beach, in March 2022.

We look forward
