Moon received their MFA from Art Center College of Design and a BA from UCLA.


Jennifer Moon (they/she; b. 1973, Lafayette, Indiana) is an interdisciplinary life-artist whose work investigates organizing systems (social systems, institutional structures, power relations, scientific theories, emotional frameworks, etc.) and how these various systems are entangled, inscribed, transmitted, performed, and perpetuated through bodies (human, nonhuman, material, immaterial). Drawing from the extremely personal, blending a mix of queer life, science, self-help, popular culture, and fantasy, Moon’s work mobilizes potential to reconfigure our relationship to power, to reignite the social and political imaginaries, and to stimulate change.
