Jill Kennedy-McNeill is a multidisciplinary Artist and Educator. Working predominantly with textiles, text and memes she produces site specific installations and soft sculpture, among other things. Outcomes are most often concerned with issues of inherited and constructed identity, particularly focusing on housing and feminism. She draws on her own experiences as well as engaging in collaborative community based projects to inform her practice.
Jill exhibits across the UK, teaches at Morley College, Richmond Art School, Hillcroft College and the University of the Arts London. She runs community workshops and is undertaking research into the impact of arts based outreach projects on disenfranchised and marginalised groups.
She is currently in the process of working with the University of Edinburgh on a publication and a series of exhibits for the ‘Scottish Feminist Judgments Project’. Working with legal academics to re-imagine key cases from the past from a feminist perspective, she is working both as an artistic contributor, and as coordinator for the creative strand of the project.
Upcoming shows will be at Glasgow’s South Block Gallery and Mount Florida Studios and Gallery in February and April of 2019.
