Marcia Annenberg’s paintings, sculpture, installations, and videos focus on under-reported stories in American media – ranging from 9/11 and climate change, to the loss of our constitutional protections. This suppression of information constitutes a new form of propaganda.
Annenberg’s work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions in museums and galleries through the United States, including Princeton University’s Bernstein Gallery in New Jersey; the Women’s Museum in Dallas; the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio; the Red Chair Gallery in Kansas City, Missouri; and the Pierro Gallery of South Orange, New Jersey.
Her paintings are in the permanent collections of the London Jewish Museum of Art in the United Kingdom; the Yad Vashem Art Museum in Jerusalem; the Vilna Gaon Jewish State Museum in Vilnius, Lithuania; and the Florida Holocaust Museum in St. Petersburg.
Her artwork was featured in the BBC documentary series The Private Life of a Masterpiece III, in the segment that examined the history, significance, and contemporary resonance of Francisco Goya’s influence. Images of Annenberg’s work have been published on the cover of The Holocaust and Other Genocides: History, Representation, Ethics edited by Helmut-Walser Smith (Vanderbilt University Press) and Project Censored: 2014 edited by Mickey Huff and Andy Lee Roth (Seven Stories Press).
Annenberg has lectured at the Bernstein Gallery of Princeton University, in conjunction with her exhibition News/Not News. She also organized a panel with Dr. Gavin Schmidt, Director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, entitled “Art, Activism and Global Warming” at the Flomenhaft Gallery in New York City. A video of the discussion can be viewed at www.mannenberg.com.
Marcia Annenberg has been named by ORIGIN Magazine as one of the top 100 American Creatives in 2015.
She studied at the Art Students League in New York City and received an M.A. in Studio Art from New York University.
