Jacqueline Butler

Jacqueline Butler is an artist and academic living and working in Manchester, England and Glasgow, Scotland. Her research is arts practice led and sits within photography, video, printmaking, and writing. Her work explores two distinct themes: a focus on family, exploring loss and female inheritance, and reflections on the illusory space printed matter offers in virtual and physical forms. She works with photography, digital video, the artist book, and writing. Much of her practice involves working with archives and collections (both public and private). She exhibits her work internationally and regularly presents arts performances at international conferences and arts events. Current research weaves old with new print technology and reflects on the history of the medium, and much of her focus in this research is around 3D digital interface. Jacqueline is a joint-coordinator of a national artists group FTN (Family Ties Network) and is Head of Media at Manchester School of Art, MMU. She is also an Executive Board Member of Open Eye Gallery, a contemporary photography Gallery based in NW England.
