Joy Gregory

Since the 1980s, Joy Gregory has been at the forefront exploring the wider cultural politics of identity, race and gender. Her practice employs photographic media, both analogue and digital, from still to moving image and camera-less photography alongside installation, objects and sound. Most recently Autograph commissioned Gregory to create new work in response to the wider context of the Covid-19 pandemic for our project Care | Contagion | Community — Self & Other. Taking her regular walks in the local neighbourhood as a point of departure Gregory created Madam Photo (2020), as a documentation her everyday rituals. Her work is included in many collections including the UK Arts Council Collection, Victoria and Albert Museum, Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane, Australia, and Yale British Art Collection.
