Jaclyn Wright is an interdisciplinary artist from the Great Lakes region. She received her BA from Southern Illinois University Carbondale and her MFA from Indiana University. Her work combines traditional analog photographic techniques with contemporary digital methods and fabrication processes. Through this hybridized approach she draws connections between historical conceptions of photography’s material connection to reality and contemporary notions of its representational infidelity. Wright has been exhibited nationally and internationally and published widely. Her work has been included in the collections at The Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Contemporary Photography, and the Joan Flasch Artists’ Book Collection in Chicago, IL.
Recent and upcoming exhibitions of her work include: SFO Museum (San Francisco), Houston Center for Photography (Houston), Utah Museum of Contemporary Art (Salt Lake City), RE: Art Show (NYC), Perspective Gallery (Chicago), Tiger Strikes Asteroid (NYC), Sala Muncunill (Barcelona, Spain).
