Alison Craighead is a contemporary visual artist and faculty member at the University of Westminster and Goldsmiths University in London. Craighead works in collaboration with Jon Thomson, making artworks and installations for galleries, online and sometimes outdoors. Much of their recent work explores how trends of globalization and global communications networks are reshaping the way we all perceive and understand the world around us.
Alison’s work has been featured in solo exhibitions in London, Germany, Brussels and Scotland. Her group projects include a commission by Photoworks for the Brighton Photobiennial (2012), an exhibition for the Centre International d’Art Contemporain de Montreal (2011), an installation for the British Council (2010), and an exhibit for the Museum of London on the London Wall (2010). In 2012, she and Jon Thomson were shortlisted for the Samsung Art Prize for their piece A Short Film About War.
