For more than 30 years, Kristin Jones has created major artworks for the public domain. In partnership with Andrew Ginzel, she has received major public commissions in New York City, including Oculus for the World Trade Center subway station and Metronome for Union Square. They have created installations for a wide range of museums and non-profit venues internationally, including the Kunsthalle in Basel and the Whitney Museum at Phillip Morris. Jones and Ginzel have collaborated with numerous other artists, such as Merce Cunningham, Edmund Campion and Chandralekha.
In 1983, while on a Fulbright Fellowship to Rome, Jones was struck by a section of the Tiber River that she describes as “grand, with a sense of majesty and loneliness.” A decade later, as a Rome Prize winner, Jones envisioned a river festival, Tevereterno – where contemporary artists of all disciplines could collaborate on staging spectacular events to draw Romans and visitors to the banks of the Tiber. Jones returned to Rome in 2001 as a Senior Fulbright Fellow to work together with the City to actively plan and produce her vision, which is based on the belief that contemporary art can be a vehicle for urban renewal and environmental awareness.
