About the Juror:
Jennifer Sudul Edwards grew up in and around New York City. She received her doctorate in 2014 from New York University’s Institute of Fine Arts, writing her dissertation on the early works of Niki de Saint Phalle under the advisement of Linda Nochlin and Robert Storr. Her research was generously funded by the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She spent seven years in Los Angeles, finishing her graduate degree and holding curatorial posts at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art where she helped organize the exhibition Pasadena to Santa Barbara: A Selected History of Southern California Art, 1951-1969, part of the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time series. She also worked at the Norton Simon Museum, assisting with the catalogue raisonne of the museum’s Goya collection.  In June 2015, she moved to Charlotte, North Carolina to become the curator at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art. Since arriving at the Bechtler, she has organized five shows:  Portraying the Patron:  Andy Warhol and the Bechtler Family; Rapid Fluid Indivisible Vision: Sam Francis; The Art of the Print; The House That Modernism Built; and All That Sparkles:  Artists’ Jewelry. She is currently preparing a large exhibition showcasing recent research on the collection, as well as a survey of Jean Tinguely.
