Jonathan Monaghan will be joined in conversation by Taras Matla, Associate Director of the University of Maryland Art Gallery.
Jonathan Monaghan is a visual artist working across a range of media, including prints, sculpture, and computer animated video, to produce otherworldly objects and narratives. Drawing on wide-ranging sources, such as historical artworks and science fiction, his fantastical pieces uncover subconscious anxieties associated with technology and consumerism. Past exhibitions include The Sundance Film Festival, The Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg, and The Palais de Tokyo in Paris. He has been featured in several media outlets including The New York Times, Vogue, and The Washington Post. Monaghan is chair of the Art Department at The Catholic University of America. His artwork sits in numerous public and private collections including The Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and the Washington D.C. Art Bank Collection.
