ALISON JACKSON

 

Alison Jackson (*1960 in Southsea, Great Britain) is a contemporary BAFTA and multi award winning artist who explores the cult of celebrity – an extraordinary phenomenon created by the media,  publicity industries and the public figures themselves.

However, Jackson is also making (real) extensive portraits of actors, celebrities, and public figures such as Eddie Redmayne, Benedict Cumberbatch, Rosamund Pike, Gillian Anderson, Ralph Fiennes, Charles Dance and many well-known politicians.

Alison Jackson has been widely exhibited in museums, galleries and in public collections across the world including: Fotografiska (Stockholm and Tallin), London-based Tate Modern, The Tate Britain, The Hayward Gallery and The National Portrait Gallery, International Center of Photography (New York City), San Francisco MoMA, Pompidou Centre and Musée du Louvre in Paris, Liverpool Biennial, Musée de L’Elysee (Lausanne), Kunsthalle Vienna, Musee de la Photo Montreal, Musée de la Photographie à Charleroi, Schirn Kunsthalle (Frankfurt), Camera Museum (Turin) and The Venice Biennale.
