Jennifer Dalton is an interdisciplinary artist based in Brooklyn, New York. In her installations, drawings and sculptures she collects, organizes and evaluates cultural information according to her own personal criteria. Her subjects are often chosen in an attempt to test a hypothesis or to dissect a chip on her own shoulder, and the results of her research have been displayed as photographic grids, hand-drawn charts, customized gumball machines, candies, bracelets, figurines, and other materials.
Dalton holds a BA in Fine Art from UCLA and an MFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. Her work has recently been exhibited at Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, Stuttgart, Germany; the Wellin Museum of Art, Hamilton, NY; Museum of Capitalism, New York, Boston and Oakland; Flag Art Foundation, New York; Center Galleries, Detroit; Museum Brandhorst, Munich, Germany; Gagosian Gallery, Los Angeles; and Isolyatsia Foundation, Donetsk, Ukraine.
Her artwork has been discussed in the publications New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Artforum, Flash Art, Frieze, Hyperallergic, and others, and in the books 33 Artists in 3 Acts, by Sarah Thornton; Ecological Aesthetics: Artful Tactics for Humans, Nature and Politics by Nathaniel Stern; Living and Sustaining a Creative Life: Essays by 40 Working Artists, edited by Sharon Louden; Various Small Books, edited by Jeff Brouws, Wendy Burton-Brouws, and Hermann Zscheigner; and Art on the Block: Tracking the New York Art World from Soho to the Bowery, Bushwick and Beyond” by Anne Fensterstock.
