Though Jennifer Pastor's work is informed by recognizable societal moments, she "has no interest in quick reads, trendy gimmicks or convictions that take shape in the blink of an eye," wrote the Los Angeles Times critic David Pagel in 2013. For Endless Arena (2009-12), a large-scale sculpture with roots in the 2003 invasion of Iraq, she extensively researched the murky world of underground fighting. Pastor's work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, NY; Whitney Museum of American Art, NY; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and FRAC Bourgone Dijon, France. She has had solo exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. She is Professor of Art at UC Irvine.
