Jane Foley (b. 1985, New Orleans) is a visual artist, performer, and sound artist living in Atlanta, Georgia (US). Her sound works explore isolation versus connectivity in public spaces, beginning with subtle repeated experiments in deep listening and reciprocity. She uses sculpture and performance as frameworks for interaction, favoring collaborative experimentation and process.
Jane Foley has created sound sculptures for the Architecture Triennale in Lisbon, Portugal and La Friche Belle de Mai in Marseille, France with Zurich-based Sound Development City, as well as produced a sound composition that played in taxicabs throughout the 5th Marrakech Biennale in Morocco. In Atlanta, she has created public works for Flux Projects, the High Museum, The Atlanta Contemporary, and the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport, among others. Foley currently teaches art at Georgia State University and Emory University while completing an MFA program, (graduating July 2020), at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
