    About the artist

    Lives and works in London

    After studying painting at Falmouth School of Art, Jo Stockham then worked at Chisenhale Studios for two years before undertaking an MA in Sculpture at Chelsea College of Art and Design. Returning to Chisenhale, she initiated an education programme with local schools and helped build Chisenhale Gallery, an experience which was formative in her desire to create public spaces alongside studio work. Over the next 20 years, her studio practice was supported by running workshops for Whitechapel Gallery, Tate, Camden Arts Centre and part-time teaching. Her first full-time teaching position commenced in 2008 when she became head of Printmaking at the RCA.

    Jo Stockham has undertaken many residences, including a Henry Moore Fellowship at Kettle’s Yard, Artist in Residence position at Warwick University and a Yaddo Fellowship in New York. Commissions have included a permanent installation for Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (in collaboration with Darrell Viner) and work for a joint project Triplicate between Tate St Ives, Southampton City Art Gallery and Eastbourne Gallery. Her work has been the focus of solo exhibitions such as No News, Arnolfini, Bristol; Changing Places, Camden Arts Centre, London, and Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge; Rest Assured, The Showroom; If Not Now When, Dilston Grove, London; and –scape, Mead Gallery, University of Warwick.

    Research projects undertaken include work for the Chiltern Sculpture Trust and the Centre for Drawing at the Wimbledon School of Art. Current research is focused on the implications of digital media on our perceptions of space and embodiment.
