biography

Megan Jacobs is an artist based in New Mexico. Her work explores delicate relationships—our existence as material and concept, the interweaving of 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 exhibited nationally and internationally and has been part of exhibitions at Saatchi Gallery (online), the Museum of New Art (MONA), the Pingyao International Photography Festival, Pingyao, China, GoEun Museum of Photography, Busan, Korea, Unitec Institute of Technology, Auckland, New Zealand, the International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA).  She earned an MFA in photography from the University of New Mexico and a BA from Smith College. She is an Associate Professor in the Honors College at the University of New Mexico where she teaches interdisciplinary courses in fine art.
