About Joy Gregory

Born in England to Jamaican parents, Gregory is a graduate of Manchester Polytechnic and the Royal College of Art. Her work has been influenced by a combination of race, gender, and aesthetics. As an artist, she is preoccupied with the telling of marginalized stories and is drawn toward the exploration of issues such as colonization and gender, hierarchies including class, power, and the liminal spaces inhabited by the dispossessed. Her research interests span the history of science, medicine and botany, social sciences, politics, and linguistics. As a photographer, she makes full use of the media from video, digital, and analogue photography to Victorian print processes. In 2002, Gregory received the NESTA Fellowship, which enabled her the freedom to research a major piece around language endangerment. She is the recipient of numerous awards. Her work is included in many collections worldwide, has shown in many festivals and biennales, and will be featured in the Center's upcoming exhibition Art in Focus: Women From the Center. She currently lives and works in London.
