Jennifer Cohen is a sculptor from New York who has a background as a professionally trained Balanchine dancer.

She has presented her work in over 30 solo and group exhibitions in the United States and abroad. A dedicated teacher as well as artist, she believes in the importance and value of art education in developing empathetic, community-oriented, curious, and questioning citizens.

Her teaching experience encompasses a broad range from first-year students to graduate students, and traditional sculpture techniques to computer-aided digital fabrication.

Cohen's object-oriented, studio-based sculpture practice explores the intersection between abstraction and figuration, inspired by both physical memories and theoretical concerns of choreography.

The stillness of her sculptures isolate the performative act into a single gesture, aiming to echo the moment where an extended body becomes a pure form. Within this intuitive process of making, she considers the possibility of physical empathy, of energy stored in matter, of visualizing and materializing human gestures, and how sculptural forms might help us to physically feel.

Cohen has served as an adjunct professor in sculpture at School of the Visual Arts for seven years in addition to numerous other courses at Parsons, NYU, Brooklyn College, and Yale University since 2002.

She earned her bachelor of arts in rhetoric from Bates College, a post-baccalaureate certificate from SAIC, and her MFA from the Yale University Sculpture program.
