Jessie Brennan


Jessie Brennan is a London-based British artist whose practice explores the inter-relation between people and place, through drawing and dialogue. Her work responds to politically contested sites, informed by their changing contexts and a direct engagement with the people who occupy them.

She graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2007 and has since exhibited nationally and internationally, with exhibitions and projects including: Regeneration! (publication, 2015); Progress, The Foundling Museum, London (2014); Contemporary Talents, François Schneider Foundation, France (2014); Coup de Ville, WARP, Belgium (2013); and The Cut, Space, London (2011).

Jessie is currently artist in residence at Metal Peterborough, recipient of a Grants for the Arts award by Arts Council England (2015) and educator and visiting lecturer at a number of universities in the UK. In 2016 she will become Visiting Research Fellow at The Bartlett, Faculty of the Built Environment, UCL. Further details about her work can be found at:
