Salon: Laura Fitzgerald and Marge Monko

Laura Fitzgerald’s current work interweaves issues of inheritance, class, and the power structures of making art. Previous work has dealt with the southwestern Ireland as a research site, explored through various mediums. Taking a one month residency to investigate personal history, place and identity, she will be traveling between her grandfather’s Park Avenue apartment and her Brooklyn studio at ISCP, constructing a narrative about an imaginary character.

Marge Monko is working with photography, video and installation. Her recent works address commercial displays—show windows and interiors that often borrow elements from fine art and classical architecture. At the Salon, Marge will talk about her research on this subject and present some works that she’s being developing during her two-month residency in ISCP.
