Nora Ligorano and Marshall Reese have collaborated together as the artistic duo LigoranoReese since the early 1980s. Their work is an ongoing investigation into the impact of technology on society and the rhetoric of politics and visual culture in the media. LigoranoReese's body of work is multidisciplinary and includes limited edition multiples, videos, sculptures and installations which involve a range of unusual materials and industrial processes.
Having exhibited widely throughout their prolific career, LigoranoReese’s most recent solo exhibitions include 50 Different Minds at the Portland Art Museum in Portland, Oregon and If You Lived Here at the Massachusetts College of Arts in Boston, Massachusetts in 2012. In 2014, their work IAMI, a multi-media, interactive, fiber-optic tapestry was the subject of a media room installation at Catharine Clark Gallery. Recent public installations of their ice sculptures include Morning In America (2012), at public parks in both North Carolina and Florida and Dawn of the Anthropocene (2014) in New York City. LigoranoReese’s work can be found in the permanent collections of numerous institutions, including the SFMOMA, The New York Public Library, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and The Getty Institute. LigoranoReese live and work in Brooklyn, New York and have been affiliated with Catharine Clark Gallery since 2010.
