Jonathan Monaghan, born 1986 in New York, is an artist who creates video installations that challenge the boundaries between the real, the imagined, and virtual. Pulling from wide-ranging sources such as science fiction and baroque architecture, he creates bizarre yet compelling narratives and imagery with the same high end technology used by Hollywood and video games.
His work has been exhibited widely, including group exhibitions at The Sundance Film Festival, The Minneapolis Institute of Art, and Postmasters Gallery. Solo exhibitions of his work include bitforms gallery in New York, Spazio Ridotto in Venice and Market Gallery in Glasgow. His work has been featured by The Washington Post, VICE, The Huffington Post, and The Village Voice. Monaghan is represented by bitforms gallery in New York.
