About the Juror

 

Jennifer Keats is an artist, educator and curator living and working in Chicago, IL.  In 2011 she established The Donut Shop, a small independent print and publishing operation focused on artist collaborations and print editions. Using the model of the bakery as a method of distribution, the vernacular of food consumption is mimicked to define selection, packaging, and pricing within an online storefront. Combining an innovative form of artwork delivery, low price point and the public’s obsession with the donut, the aim is to encourage public engagement, accessibility, and empowered viewership.

Presently, The Donut Shop is offering work by Aperture Portfolio Prize Winner, Natalie Krick. Prints of Kricks’ collages from images cut from fashion magazines which are then recreated using photographs of her mother, sister and herself are available in a dozen and 1/2 dozen.

Jennifer Keats currently manages the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Service Bureau, the school’s on-campus professional output center.  She received her MFA in Photography from Columbia College Chicago and her BFA in Graphic Design from Michigan State University.
