Ep.128 Amy Jackson - Ministry of Arts Podcast

In this episode Gary Mansfield speaks to Amy Jackson (@thisisamyjackson)   Amy Jackson is a conceptual artist with 15 years’ experience blending philosophy, nature and science to create meticulous immersive experiences in traditional galleries and unconventional spaces. Her work includes street art, happenings, photography, painting and found objects.     Jackson explores issues such as climate change, consumerism, mental health, social inequalities and critically, how these themes are inextricably linked. Her work often exists outside of the ‘white cube’ and inside the communities it touches.     Experience spans art commissions for *Kensington + Chelsea Art Week to public speaking on climate change. Her work has been featured in the Times, Art World Magazine, Modern Art Oxford, Time Out and The Tate Britain.   You can join Amy Jackson for a Live Walking tour and artist talk of the Alternative Art Trail in Portobello as part of the 2021 Kensington + Chelsea Art Week     * Kensington + Chelsea Art Week is expanding throughout the summer season with a festival that elevates the magic and shared experiences of public art and live performance.
