Jenny Odell is an Oakland-based interdisciplinary artist who frequently works with personal archives, collections, and taxonomies. Because her practice exists at the intersection of research and aesthetics, she has often been compared to a natural scientist. Her work has been exhibited at The Contemporary Jewish Museum (SF), Ever Gold Projects, the Barrick Museum (Las Vegas), Les Rencontres D’Arles, Fotomuseum Antwerpen, La Gaîté lyrique (Paris), Apexart (NY), the Lishui Photography Festival (China) and East Wing (Dubai). Odell has been an artist in residence at Recology SF, the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the New York Public Library, and the Internet Archive. In 2016, Odell created a mural for the side of a Google data center in Pryor, Oklahoma. Odell currently teaches digital art at Stanford University.
