The Joan Jonas Knowledge Base

The resource will contain information that will benefit curators, conservators, and researchers interested in the work of Joan Jonas. We are working directly with the artist, her archive, and people who are familiar with her artistic production. We plan to launch the Joan Jonas Knowledge Base in May 2019 at the annual Artist Archives Initiative symposium at New York University. Details to be announced closer to the date.
