Marcia Resnick was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1950. She studied art at NYU and Cooper Untion, then went on to graduate school at California Institute of the Arts, where she studied conceptual art with John Baldessari and Allen Kaprow. During the early 1970's, Resnick began to study photography.
Resnick moved back to NYC, and in 1975, self-published three conceptual artist books, "Landscape," "See," and "Tahitian Eye." In 1976, she began work on a series of photographic reconstructions of memories of her early life. These images, each complemented by a short text, was published as "Re-visions" by The Coach House Press, 1978, in Toronto.
During the late 1970's Resnick taught photography at Queens College and NYU. She went out every night to hear music at CBGB's, Max's, and the Mudd Club. The photographic forays into the night became her art. many portraits were taken in her studio in her Tribeca loft, where atmosphere was generated, lighting could be manipulated, and props were employed.
She worked for the Soho Weekly News, New York Magazine, and other periodicals.
Her photographs are exhibited internationally, and are in major museum collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, NYC, Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC, National Portrait Gallery, Washington DC, George Eastman House, Rochester, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, New York Public Library, Jewish Museum, NYC, Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, and Getty Museum, Los Angeles.

Pat Place, guitarist of The Contortions, and guitarist/founder of the Bush Tetras, is exhibiting a series of photographs of the end shots taken of her television since 1981. She has compiled over a thousand images, and arranges them into blocks of six and four.
