Kaitlyn B. Jones
Interdisciplinary Artist & Curator
Kaitlyn B. Jones is an interdisciplinary artist and curator committed to using art as a conduit for healing, a seedbed for activism, and as necessary fuel for the revolution against white supremacy.
Through a multi-media artistic lens, Jones explores themes of Black legacy, lineage and autonomy as it relates to the conscious and unconscious value placed on the histories and multifacetedness of the Black Diaspora. In the summer of 2022, Jones was an artist in residence at Roger’s Art Loft in Las Vegas, Nevada where she created Black Woman, Unbothered, an installation honoring the Black ancestral desire for rest and liberation. In 2021, Jones’ interactive installations, This is not for you and One day, you will die were selected by guest curator Aisha Tida Abbassi for A Time for Action, an interdisciplinary micro-festival hosted by the Blaffer Art Museum in Houston, Texas.
As a graduate student, she was the lead curator for the 2021-2022 season of Convergence Research, an interdisciplinary performance series hosted in part by the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts at the University of Houston.
Kaitlyn B. Jones holds a Master of Arts in Arts Leadership with a Certificate in Museum and Gallery Management from the University of Houston and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance from the University of Texas at Austin.
