Megan Plunkett  Photography Co-Chair


Megan Plunkett is an artist who works with images to investigate the material conditions and visual economies of reality in photography. She uses mundane objects and visual conventions drawn from forensic crime scene documentation, commercial product photography, and old Hollywood set tricks to access a sense of estrangement and the uncanny. She is interested in what kinds of visual authorities we listen to, and what we ignore.

Recent exhibitions include “anti-corpo”, a two-person show with Manfred Pernice, at Emalin (London), and solo exhibitions at Sweetwater (Berlin) and at F (Houston). Her work has been included in group exhibitions at Shivers Only, Paris, FR (2023); King's Leap @ Room3557, Los Angeles, US (2023); Park View / Paul Soto, Los Angeles, US (2022); The Wig, Berlin, DE (2022); Bonner Kunstverein, Bonn, DE (2022); MOSTYN, Llandudno, UK (2022); Magenta Plains, New York, US (2021); DREI, Mönchengladbach, DE (2021); Sweetwater, Berlin, DE (2020); Art at Michael’s, Los Angeles, US (2020); Normandy Hôtel, Paris, FR (2019); and Reena Spaulings Los Angeles, US (2019). 

Plunkett received her BFA in Printmaking from Pratt Institute, and her MFA from the Milton Avery School of the Arts at Bard College.
