Joy Gregory

Lives & works: London, UK.

Joy Gregory is a graduate of The Royal College of Art in London.  Her practice is concerned with social and political issues, with particular reference to history and cultural difference in contemporary society. As a photographer she makes full use of the media, using video, digital and analogue photography, and is well-known for her use of early print processes, such as the cyanotype. Chickweed, 2017 which Gregory hand-printed for Field Editions, is a series of cyanotypes, each slightly different and characteristically unique.

In 2002 Gregory received the NESTA Fellowship, which led to production of a major piece around the subject of language endangerment. The first of this series was the video piece Gomera, which premiered at the Sydney Biennale in May 2010. More recent shows include Lost Languages and Other Voices, (2016), a touring exhibition curated by Impressions Gallery, Bradford and The Place is Here at Nottingham Contemporary, England, (2016).

In 2017 Joy Gregory is one of a select group of 19 artists exhibiting at the inaugural Diaspora Pavilion at Venice Biennale, one of two new Pavilions conceived to challenge the idea of national representation within an international biennale. A selection from her many previous international exhibitions include Invisible Light at Museum of Modern Art Oxford, UK (1997); Memory & Skin, Fruit Market Gallery, Edinburgh, UK (1998); The Amberley Panels, Pallant House, Chichester, UK (2000); We are the Camera, Houston Centre of Photography, USA (2004) and On Beauty, at Goodman Gallery, Cape Town, South Africa (2007).

Joy Gregory is the recipient of numerous awards and has works included in many prestigious collections including the UK Arts Council Collection; V &A Museum, London; Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane, Australia and Yale British Art Collection, USA.

Joy Gregory currently lives and works in London.
