Jacquelyn Davis is a writer, editor, curator and publisher working internationally. Her research tends to explore: curating-as-publishing, interdisciplinary synthesis, hybridity, psychology, law & society, political theory, contemporary art, cinema, jewelry design, avant-garde literature, technology, mutating feminism(s), influence and simulation. Functional versus ineffective collaboration techniques are a concern of hers. She has edited and published books such as Lorazepam and the Valley of Skin: Extrapolations on Los Angeles/730910-2155, What Are You Working On?/Vad Har Du På Gång? and Cunning Like Doves.

Key projects include founding and orchestrating the curatorial platforms and publishing modules The Lottery Project and valeveil; Davis is chief editor, curator and publisher for both self-sustaining initiatives. Previous work includes curated exhibitions, events, workshops and texts for select spaces, organizations and institutions. Davis's writing, curations and research extend to a wide range of creative intermingling: experimental narration, poetics, ekphrasis, installations, essays, interviews, scripts, audio and voice over. She also contributes commissioned texts (e.g., Ear to the Ground, Anna Boghiguian, Jacob Dahlgren: A to Z, Used Paintings, Imagining the Audience) and provides expertise for artists, organizers and independent sources. New intentions continue to manifest themselves.

Davis's critical writing has appeared in notable publications, and her creative writing frequents both established literary journals and DIY publishing initiatives. Her writing and research have been supported by Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik, Stiftelsen Längmanska Kulturfonden, Hordaland Kunstsenter, VV Foundation, Frame Contemporary Art Finland, Banff International Curatorial Institute, Konstepidemin, Kulturkontakt Nord—and educational entities. She is a member of the Swedish Art Critics Association (AICA), Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP), the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and is a citizen of the Kingdoms of Elgaland-Vargaland (KREV). Moreover, Davis is a professional scuba diver, class VIII deck officer and skipper with international maritime competency.
