Jennifer Greenburg's Revising History series was selected for exhibition in the Italian photo-festival Cortona on the Move.
Jennifer Greenburg is currently on a teaching sabbatical, so anticipate the rollout of more work in coming months, and be the first to see new productions, such as this latest work, "Sometimes the Director knocked twice. 2017."
I intend for this series to engage the audience in a conversation about the way we interpret the media, record personal memories, and establish collective history… [this] is a study on photography, the nature of the vernacular image, and its role in creating cultural allegories . . . By (re)processing a cross-section of the past I am creating a dialogue about the constructs still entrapped in our national psyche.Read More
We are thrilled to announce that two works by Jennifer Greenburg have recently been acquired by MOCA Tucson. Both prints are from the Artist's ongoing series Revising History. The insurance agent told me to have my husband or my father call him. 2017 (left) and I've never been good at handling unwarranted attention. 2016 (right) are particularly interesting; they exemplify how more recent works are far darker and more loaded than earlier ones. They seem to reveal a pivot-point in the series.Read More

We are happy to share the following excerpt of an editorial by Susan Burnstine:
When Greenburg adorns herself in one of her many vintage outfits, she admits she feels glamorous. 'I am not a person with problems anymore. I become someone else - someone else who only exists in photographs. Yet, that person - that icon of a person - is something the photograph made up. She is someone without strife, someone without obstacles. We believe so deeply in the truth of "her" that we measure ourselves against what we think we see in the picture. And when we cannot measure up, we then begin to blame the times we live in. Some say, "Oh, people used to be more civilized back then." This is in fact not true. We revise our past, that includes inequality, racism, misogyny and numerous other hardships we conveniently forget.'
