Marilyn Waligore


Marilyn Waligore, Professor of Aesthetic Studies/Photography at UT Dallas uses digital media to investigate the everyday, with an emphasis on women's lives.

She challenges the hierarchal distinctions that appear to separate personal ritual and domestic activity from laboratory research and technological processes.

By extension she reflects on the status of the still life genre, historically considered most appropriate for the woman artist, in the context of contemporary dialogues on the beautiful and sublime.

Her articles on contemporary art have appeared in Leonardo and Photography Quarterly, and she has curated numerous local and national exhibitions.

Her creative work in digital media and photography has been exhibited widely, including SIGGRAPH, Los Angeles, California, the New York Digital Salon, School of Visual Arts, NYC, Center for Photography at Woodstock, New York, the Dayton Art Institute, Ohio, the Laguna Gloria Art Museum and Women & Their Work, Austin, Texas, and she is a recipient of grants and awards, including Artist Fellowships from the Ohio Arts Council and Arts Midwest/ National Endowment of the Arts, and the Moss/Chumley North Texas Artist Award.
