What we liked most about Jessica was her indulgence. Within a few seconds of spotting Jessica glide through Frances Stark’s My Best Thing exhibition at the MoMA PS1, her sniper-like focus on the exhibited words and full disregard for anyone around her completely fascinated us. Without breaking her concentration too much, we asked to take her photo and then off she went. The memory lingers in a way that’s more vivid than other babe encounters at the museum.
We managed to track Jessica down and ask her some things about herself that we didn’t get a chance to delve into during our initial 15-second interaction back in January. We interviewed Jessica about what artists excite her senses the most, the exciting madness of Yayoi Kusama’s Fireflies exhibit, and how museums could loosen rules a tad bit more to make visits more relaxing.
