Maeve Jackson is a Milwaukee based artist with a nomadic sensibility. As she travels her-making space shifts based where she resides. Jackson is resistant to being limited to any single medium though she prefers working with the platforms of video, photography, and site specific installations.
Her work has been shown in numerous group exhibitions in Milwaukee, as well as Brooklyn, NY; Greensboro College, NC; Chicago,IL, Barcelona, Spain, and southern Austria. She has been featured in exhibitions at John Michael Kohler Art Center (Sheboygan, WI); and locally at (the once) Dean Jensen Gallery, VAR Gallery, and Saint Kate – The Arts Hotel; with solo exhibitions at The Alice Wilds and Lawrence University’s Wriston Art Galleries.
She has attended the artist-in-residence programs: Hotel Pupik (2016 & 2019), in southern Austria; and Cow House Studios Open Residency Program (2019) in Wexford, Ireland. Her film, “the beautiful”, screened across the USA after it’s 2017 premiere. Jackson is currently working on her next film, a non-traditional documentary about her family’s farmland.
Jackson is an instructor of photography and film at Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design.
