Casey McGonagle

Casey McGonagle (1977) is an interdisciplinary artist based in Los Angeles, California working primarily in the medium of video installation. His grotesque and psychedelic narrative approach blends chaotic free association with dystopian pop music to test the boundaries of contemporary social commentary.

McGonagle has exhibited in two one-person shows, at HungryMan Gallery in Chicago (2010) and at Kokoro Studio in San Francisco (2009). His work has also been included in numerous group shows, some of which include Photography Sees the Surface, Higher Pictures, NY (2015), Post Internet/Pre Cyborg, University of New Haven Seton Gallery, Connecticut (2015), Deep End, Flag Art Foundation, New York (2014) and Ceaseless Blooms in Jobless Colors, Johalla Projects, Chicago (2011). He is the recipient of the John Ferguson Weir Award, The Endsley Memorial Fellowship, The World Less Travelled Grant and recently participated in The Convergence Residency at The Banff Centre in Canada. He holds a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2011) and an MFA from the Yale School of Art (2014).

McGonagle is currently partnering with Ray McClure on a multi-user, virtual experience that intuitively facilitates abstract visual communication through freeform vocal experimentation.
