Jonathan Monaghan

Seamlessly melding imagery from art history, mainstream video games, and contemporary advertising, Jonathan Monaghan's sculptures, prints and video installations are unreal explorations of power, wealth, and the role of technology. His absurd, yet compelling narratives take shape through sleek animated videos, which have been exhibited and screened at the BFI Southbank in London, the Eyebeam Art & Technology Center in New York, the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, and the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington D.C. Jonathan was artist-in-residence at MakerBot Industries and has received awards from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, Foundation for Contemporary Arts in New York. In 2009 he won the Experimental Media Prize from the Washington Project for the Arts. His solo show is up at bitforms gallery through May 3, 2015.
