Jennifer Meridian is a visual artist based in Pittsburgh, PA. Her practice is grounded in a philosophy of experimentation, chance and collaboration — and she makes work that specifically attempts to interrogate and interrupt dominant systems of power that become reconsidered, dismantled, and reconstructed through a queer and feminist lens. In political-personal works, she engages with a range of source materials including government proposals, fragments of slate and other artists and performers to create solo and collaborative works that span discipline and media.

She has shown in galleries, museums and screening venues across the US. Her recent collaborative project with JM Design Studio, “The Other Border Wall Proposals,” received major national media coverage when they were submitted to the Customs and Border Control Agency on April 4, 2017.
