Jacqueline Donachie

Jacqueline Donachie is an award-winning Scottish artist who works across public and gallery settings. She studied at Glasgow School of Art and Hunter College New York, and holds a PhD from Northumbria University that examines the capacity for artworks to shape research and care in the field of genetics, continuing a long collaborative engagement with biomedical researchers in both Newcastle and Glasgow.    

Her work encompasses sculpture, installations, photographs, films, drawings and performance and is research-based, collaborative and participatory. 

Recent gallery exhibitions include ‘Deep in The Heart of Your Brain’ at the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow (2016), an exhibition that drew wide praise for the manner in which it addressed disability, inheritance and ageing, and Right Here Among Them (2017), a mid-career survey show at the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh that was the recipient of the inaugural Freelands Award. She is interested in collaborative working processes, and has completed a number of public commissions including works with the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (2013) and NPRo Oslo (2015).
