Jennifer Burris

Jennifer Burris is a curator and writer based in Bogotá, Colombia. As founding director of Athenée Press, she works closely with contemporary artists to develop research-driven books in the collective knowledge of spoken narratives, rumored histories, private archives, and imagined futures: a process that also informs her curatorial work, which includes exhibitions at the Museo de Arte Moderno, Bogotá; Brooklyn Museum, New York; Haverford College’s Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery, Philadelphia; and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia. As a writer she has contributed to publications including The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism, Studies in French Cinema, Bomb Daily, Revista Código, Afterall, and Frieze as well as numerous catalogues and anthologies. A graduate of the University of Cambridge (Ph.D) and Princeton University (A.B.), she was a 2010–2011 Helena Rubinstein Curatorial Fellow at the Whitney Independent Study Program and the 2011–2013 Whitney-Lauder Curatorial Fellow at the Institute of Contemporary Art at the University of Pennsylvania. From 2018–2020, she was an Assistant Professor in Curatorial Practice and Museum Studies at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
