Jacqueline Winsor (born 20 October 1941, St. John's; also known as Jackie Winsor) is a Canadian-American sculptor. Her style, which developed in the early 1970s as a reaction to the work of minimal artists, has been characterized as post-minimal, anti-form, and process art.[1][2] Works from this period retain minimalism's geometry but eschew its use of industrial materials and methods in favor of materials such as wood and hemp.[2]

Winsor has been in several exhibitions. In 1979, a mid-career retrospective of her work opened at the MoMA;[3] this was the first time the MoMA had presented a retrospective of work by a woman artist since 1946.[4] Other exhibitions include "American Woman Artist Show" April 14-May 14, 1974 at the Kunsthaus Hamburg (Germany), curated by Sybille Niester and Lil Picard,[5] and "26 Contemporary Women Artists" April 18-June 13, 1971 at the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, curated by Lucy Lippard[6]
