Poet and visual artist Jen Bervin's work brings together text and textile in a practice that encompasses artist books, poetry, large-scale art works, and archival research. Bervin's work has been shown at The Walker Art Center and is in many special collections including the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University, Stanford University, Bibliothèque Nationale de France, and the British Library. She has received fellowships in art and writing from The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, The New York Foundation for the Arts, Centrum, The MacDowell Colony, Visual Studies Workshop, and The Camargo Foundation and will be a Von Hess Visiting Artist at the Borowsky Center Publication Arts at the University of the Arts in 2012.
The Jen Bervin Early Collection comprises all of the edition work made by the artist between 1997-2004. Five complete sets have been assembled from the remaining inventory. There is one copy for sale.
