Ligorano/Reese is the collaboration of artists Nora Ligorano and Marshall Reese. Starting in the early 1980s, Ligorano/Reese‘s work is an ongoing investigation into the impact of technology on culture and the associations and meanings that the media brings to images, languages, and speech in politics. Their body of work is multidisciplinary, including limited edition multiples, videos, sculptures and installations which involve a range of unusual materials and industrial processes. Ligorano/Reese have shown widely throughout their career, and are included in the public collections of many institutions, not limited to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco; The New York Public Library, New York; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. The artists have also been awarded multiple grants including the National Endowment for the Arts in 1986 and 1989, and have received artist residencies at Stichting Steim in Holland in 2000 and the Eyebeam Center for Art & Technology in New York in 2009, among others. Ligorano/Reese live and work in Brooklyn, New York.
