Jacqui McIntosh

Jacqui McIntosh is a researcher, curator and writer based in London. She is currently a recipient of a Curatorial Research Grant from the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art (2023). This research explores the role that drawing has played within feminist activism and will result in an exhibition The Time of Our Lives at Drawing Room, London early 2024.

Jacqui has been part of the Drawing Room team since 2011, contributing to the understanding of the medium of drawing through exhibitions management, research, curation of exhibitions, writing, and programming of events. She has curated independently and in her role at Drawing Room. Most recently she worked on the Hayward touring exhibition Not Without My Ghosts (2021), co-curated with Drawing Room and Simon Grant, Lars Bang Larsen and Marco Pasi. The exhibition, which explored the idea of the artist as medium, included works by Victor Hugo, William Blake, Madge Gill, Georgiana Houghton, Ann Churchill and Ithell Colquhoun amongst others.

Independently, Jacqui has a particular interest in artists whose spiritual development has evolved in tandem with their artistic output.  Current research areas include the drawings and works on paper of British artist and occultist Ithell Colquhoun. Jacqui’s writing has appeared in newspapers, art publications and catalogue essays for galleries and artists. She is a member of the International Association of Art Critics (AICA). She also has her own artistic practice, working predominantly in drawing, print and collage.
