Marlene McCarty's practice involves drawing, politics, activism and working commercially. She worked with Tibor Kalman at the famed multidisciplinary design firm M&Co. and also at the Museum of Modern Art. In the late 1980s McCarty was a member of Gran Fury, the AIDS activist collective. In 1989, she founded Bureau, a company whose mandate was to produce art, film titles, political work and brand identities. Under the auspices of Bureau, McCarty designed film titles for "Far from Heaven," "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," "American Psycho," "Velvet Goldmine," and "The Ice Storm" among many others. Included in her roster of achievements is a Pollack-Krasner Foundation Grant (2007) and a Guggenheim Foundation Grant (2002-2003).
