biography

Megan Jacobs is an artist based in New Mexico. Her work explores delicate relationships—our existence as material and concept, the interweaving between two partners in love and the bond of parent and child. The materials that she works with: photographs, video projections, time-based media, glass, and ice, function metaphorically to illustrate the ambiguity of the body and the mutability of memory and identity.

Jacobs’ work has been featured in Musee Magazine, Lenscratch, Feature Shoot, Frankie Magazine, F-STOP Magazine, Fraction Magazine and other publications.  Her Hidden Mothers series was selected for Critical Mass Top 50. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and has been part of exhibitions at Blue Sky Gallery, The FENCE (regional), Saatchi Gallery (online), the Museum of New Art (MONA), Pingyao Photographic Festival, and the International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA).

Jacobs is an Associate Professor in the Honors College at the University of New Mexico and an Adobe Educational Leader.  She values her role as an educator and a working artist and welcomes opportunities that relate to lecturing, visiting institutions, and conducting portfolio reviews.
