The Hunter College Art Galleries are pleased to present Constance DeJong, a survey exhibition marking the artist’s first solo show at an institutional gallery. For over four decades, DeJong—“a person of language”—has made daring, original forays into the intersections of the formal avant-garde in experimental prose writing, multi-media spoken text works, and user-navigated digitalprojects. Well known for her contributions to New York’s downtown performance art and avant-garde music scene in the 1970s and ’80s, DeJong is considered one of the progenitors of media art, or “time-based media.” This exhibition highlights DeJong’s hybrid mode of art making, featuring work from the past three decades and debuting several new works by the artist.
