In a career that now spans over four decades, Kim Jones has created a singular and subjective body of work based on both extreme personal experience and a diverse range of artistic influences. The title of this exhibition, White Crow, refers to the extremely rare occurrence when a crow is born without any pigment in its plumage. This marks the bird as not only an outsider, but also, in folk mythology, as an omen of impending change. Produced on the occasion of Kim Jones: White Crow, on view at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum May 5, 2016 to February 5, 2017.
