Matthew Buckingham is a New York–based artist who utilizes photography, film, video, audio, writing and drawing. His work questions the role that social memory plays in contemporary life.

Buckingham examines dynamic connections between the present and past while scrutinizing the power and effects of representation.

Recent projects investigate the conflicting cartographies of the indigenous Lenape Indians and early European settlers of the Hudson River Valley; the "creative destruction" of the city of St. Louis; and the inception of the first English dictionary.

His work has been presented at ARC/Musée d'art moderne de la ville de Paris; Castello di Rivoli Museo d'Arte Contemporanea, Turin; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

In 2007 he will have a solo survey exhibition at the Camden Arts Centre in London.
