G.B. Jones

Greater Toronto Art 2024

G.B. Jones (b. Bowmanville, Ontario) is an artist, filmmaker, musician, and publisher of zines. Drawings in her publication J.D.s brought her to the attention of Feature Gallery in New York, where she first showed her Tom Girls series alongside the work of Tom of Finland in 1991. Further series explored themes such as car crashes, candy, witches, and psychogeographical locations. She has participated in notable exhibitions, including This Will Have Been: Art, Love, and Politics in the 1990s at MCA Chicago in 2012 and Copy Machine Manifestos: Artists Who Make Zines at the Brooklyn Museum in 2023. Her first solo exhibition in Europe was held at Kunstverein (Amsterdam). Jones is represented by Cooper Cole (Toronto) and currently lives and works in Toronto.

For GTA24, Jones will include three drawings that function as studies of various haunted buildings throughout Southern Ontario, alongside a selection of photographs and collages made in collaboration with Paul P. Also included in the exhibition is a musical composition by G.B. Jones and Caroline Azar as Fifth Column, which will be installed in MOCA’s south stairwell.
