Marget Long is a visual artist known for her exploration of the bodily impact and sensory politics of imaging technologies, past and present. Using her own photographs and text—in addition to a wide range of archival sources and presentational formats—her work opens up new ways of “receiving” and “knowing” the images that the world hurls at us every day.
She has screened and exhibited her work at both national and international venues, including The Art Institute of Chicago, The Brooklyn Museum, British Film Institute, Exit Art, Anthology Film Archives, Kunsthaus Bregenz, and American Cinémathèque in Los Angeles. Long also lectures frequently on photography and visual culture, most recently at University College London (with Carolyn Dinshaw), International Center for Photography, Yale University’s Photographic Memory Workshop, and at the Center for Visual Cultures at University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her work has been published by Afterimage, SocialText, Conveyor Magazine, Artfcity, and the Visual Studies Workshop. She is the author of Flash + Cube (1965-1975), Punctum Books (2012) and When I Was a Mirage, forthcoming with Punctum Books (2020).
Long received a BA from Harvard University and an MFA in Photography from the Rhode Island School of Design, where she was the recipient of the T.C. Colley Award in photography. She is an adjunct professor at The Cooper Union, where she is also the Director of The Paul Laux Digital Architecture Studio, an interdisciplinary maker’s space for design, art, and architecture.
