Jeanette Mundt's 2020 solo exhibition Still American at Company Gallery featured "Mundt [taking] ownership and mastery of heavily utilized motifs in the history of painting: Landscape, Nude, Self-Portrait, then [setting] them ablaze. Fire itself, Mundt notes, is an elusive element to perfect, and a flicker of painter’s bravado. And within this unsettling production and reproduction of fire, Mundt establishes her narrative control." Mundt has held solo exhibitions at Company Gallery (New York), Société (Berlin), Overduin and Co (Los Angeles), Gavin Brown's Enterprise (New York), and Bridget Donahue (New York). Her paintings depicting the 2016 US Women's Gymnastics Team were notably listed as one of the 6 most compelling works in the 2019 Whitney Biennial by its curators in Time Magazine.
