Phillips Collection Conversations With Artists featuring Jonathan Monaghan - IN PERSON
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.
This event is part of NextNOW Fest. The Clarice’s NextNOW Fest is an inspiring arts experience that celebrates imagination, creativity and community. By amplifying the voices of intriguing, inventive artists from around campus and our community, NextNOW Fest creates a forward-looking microcosm where art transforms our future and (re)connects us all.
NextNOW Fest is a signature event in University of Maryland's new Arts for All initiative, which leverages the combined power of the arts, technology and social justice to address the grand challenges of our time. In addition to our traditional student, academic and touring arts lineup at The Clarice on Sep 17 and 18, we’re thrilled to forge new partnerships with more student-led groups, academic departments and community organizations to expand the festival to seven days at sites throughout campus and into College Park!
