Madeleine Gallagher

Madeleine Gallagher (b.1977, Media, PA, USA) is a visual artist, educator and designer. Centered at the intersection of traditional object making, time-based media and performance, Madeleine uses her work as a means to investigate cultural filters and cognition in media perception. She thrives on the opportunity to make installations and objects that explore physical, visual and aural sensation, endurance and perceptual thresholds of the body. A large portion of her past work includes audio/visual performance, using live video image processing, drawn from prefabricated clips she created with analog video synthesizers. As an experimental film and video maker, she has created a series of abstract narratives that address issues of control, power, desire and the distortion of memory. Formally trained in studio art, Madeleine has an MFA from the multidisciplinary art program Mount Royal School of Art at MICA and a BFA from the General Fine Arts Program at MICA. She has exhibited, performed and screened her work in a variety of art spaces, theaters and planetariums in Baltimore, Berlin, Boston, Chicago, Knoxville, London, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Schenectady. Madeleine has taught video art, video installation and video production since 2001 in the roles of Assistant Professor at Massachusetts College of Art (MA), as Television Studio Faculty at Salem Public Schools (MA) and as an Instructor of Telemedia at Carver Center for the Arts (MD). As a freelance designer, Madeleine has designed and produced videos, album covers and events for a variety of clients including: Deep Elm Records, Def Jam Records and Ultraworld
