Jenene Nagy is a mixed media visual artist living and working in the Inland Empire. She received her BFA from the University of Arizona in 1998 and her MFA from the University of Oregon in 2004. Nagy’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at venues including the Portland Art Museum; Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro, North Carolina; Southern Exposure in San Francisco; Takt Kunstprojektraum in Berlin; and Samuel Freeman in Los Angeles, among others. Her work has been recognized with grants and awards from the Foundation of Contemporary Art, the Oregon Arts Commission, Colorado Creative Industries, and the Ford Family Foundation. 

Along with a rigorous studio practice, Nagy is one half of the curatorial team TILT Export, an independent art initiative with no fixed location, working in partnership with a variety of venues to produce exhibitions. From 2011 to 2012, she was the first curator-in-residence for Disjecta Contemporary Art Center in Portland. Nagy's work is represented by Samuel Freeman Gallery in Los Angeles, PDX CONTEMPORARY ART in Portland, and Michael Warren Contemporary in Denver.

An exhibition of Nagy's work is on view in the Concourse Gallery from October 5 to November 6. It is part of a larger collaboration between Augsburg University, Bethel University, the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, and St. Catherine University in conjunction with the publication of Kenneth Steinbach's book, Creative Practices for Visual Artists (Routledge, 2018).  

This event is free and open to the general public. For more information of any disability accommodations, please contact Kerry Morgan, director of gallery and exhibition programs, at 612-874.3667 or gallery@mcad.edu
