A fresh look at the multidimensional career of the Dutch avant-garde artist

Dutch avant-garde artist Jacqueline de Jong (b. 1939) is best known for her involvement in the Situationist International and for her lively, monumental paintings. Her varied, six-decade-long career has encompassed drawing, graphic design, sculpture, jewelry, printmaking, and books, as well as the magazine The Situationist Times, which she edited from 1962–1967. This volume features large-scale reproductions of her works, much of it newly photographed, allowing the reader to appreciate de Jong’s keen attention to color and the values of opacity and transparency of paint. An international team of writers and curators offer a panoply of perspectives on the artist’s remarkable work and long career.

Devrim Bayar is curator at WIELS Contemporary Art Center, Belgium. Juliette Desorgues is curator at MOSTYN, Wales, UK. Alison M. Gingeras is a curator and writer based in New York and Warsaw. Xander Karskens is director of de Ateliers in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Annabelle Ténèze is head curator and general director of the Abattoirs, Musee-FRAC Occitanie Toulouse.
