Jenny Slate might have a new bearded man in her life.

The 36-year-old actress, who is at the Sundance Film Festival promoting her new movie The Sunlit Night, was pictured getting close to art curator Ben Shattuck. The two were reportedly seen getting cozy at The Vulture Spot on Sunday. They were also pictured sitting together at a dinner that same day, with Shattuck sweetly giving Slate a kiss on the forehead at one point.

The pair matched light-colored sweaters for the outing, with Slate’s featuring rainbow colors faded out. She kept her short hair loose while wearing minimal jewelry.

A rep for the actress did not immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Shattuck serves as curator for the Dedee Shattuck Gallery, which is owned by his mom. The gallery’s website describes him as a writer and painter and says he graduated from Cornell University.

He often posts about his work on his Instagram, which Slate follows.

This is Slate’s first public relationship since her March 2018 split with Chris Evans. The two dated on and off for two years after first meeting on the 2016 set of Gifted. The couple was spotted together again in October 2017 after first breaking up in February following nearly a year of dating. Flirty Twitter exchanges between the two soon followed, sending fans into a frenzy about the possibility of their reunion.

Slate was also previously married to comedian Dean Fleischer-Camp for four years before their separation in May 2016. Slate started dating Evans soon after.
