Avery Architectural & Fine Arts Library, Columbia University
Jennifer Gray is Curator of Drawings and Archives at Avery Architectural & Fine Arts Library, Columbia University. She studies modern architecture, with an emphasis on how designers and activists used architecture, cities, and landscapes to advance social and spatial justice at the turn of the 20th century. She also is interested in contemporary social practice and questions of critical heritage. Most recently she produced the exhibitions Frank Lloyd Wright tra America e Italia at the Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli in Turin, Italy, and Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive at The Museum of Modern Art, as well as the accompanying publications. Her work has been published elsewhere in journals of architectural history and experimental preservation, and she is developing a book project, tentatively titled Liminal Spaces, that explores activist architecture in Chicago circa 1900. She has won several awards and fellowships, including a grant from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts. She received her PhD from Columbia University.
