Jackie Winsor (1947-2018)

Jackie Winsor

Since the late 1960s, Jackie Winsor (b. 1941 St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada) has been making sculpture that expands a Minimalist vocabulary of simple geometric forms, using unrefined materials and grids to investigate process and labor. Working by hand and spending years on some pieces, Winsor produces intimate, tactile sculptures that engage the relationship between interior and exterior.  In 1979, the Museum of Modern Art presented a mid-career retrospective of Winsor’s work, the first retrospective show of a female artist in the MoMA’s department of Painting and Sculpture since 1946; the retrospective traveled to the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto and the Fort Worth Art Museum in Texas. Windsor was included in the 1977, 1979, and 1983 Biennial Exhibitions at the Whitney Museum, and in 1984 her work was featured in American Art Since 1970 at the Whitney Museum. P.S. 1 inaugurated its newly renovated space in Long Island City, Queens with a retrospective of her work in 1997. More recently, her one-person exhibition Jackie Winsor: With and Within was held at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield, CT in 2014 – 2015. Winsor’s work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York; The Art Institute of Chicago; the Detroit Institute of Art; and the Walker Art Center; among others. has currently the Domaine Kerguehennec catalogue from 1998 available.
