TBC, Curator
JAM! featuring artworks by three leading female contemporary artists: Alex Prager, Jennifer Steinkamp, and Mona Kuhn. This exhibition is the first in a series of micro-initiatives, smaller shows aimed at keeping its mission of connecting artists and audiences on the streets of Los Angeles active throughout the year. Prager, Steinkamp, and Kuhn were selected for their unique dialogue with film and photography, two of the quintessential artistic mediums of Los Angeles. All three artists live and work in Los Angeles and play a vibrant role in the cultural community, fostering learning and supporting emerging artists. The artworks will be displayed on three prominent billboards across the city, with two billboards located in downtown Los Angeles, and another across from Paramount Studios in Hollywood. The goal of this exhibition, as with all TBC initiatives, is to broaden the reach of public art — transforming the streets of Los Angeles into an open-air museum, accessible to all.

Mona Kuhn, Curator
Mona Kuhn is best known for her large-scale, dream-like photographs of the human form. Her work often references classical themes with a light and insightful touch. Kuhn's approach to her photography is unusual in that she usually develops close relationships with her subjects, resulting in images of remarkable naturalness and intimacy, and creating the effect of people naked but comfortable in their own skin. Kuhn was born in São Paolo, Brazil, in 1969, of German descent. She received her BA from the Ohio State University, before furthering her studies at the San Franscisco Art Institute in 1996. She is currently an independent scholar at The Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles.
