Product story

Marisa J Futernick interrogates the failed promise of the American Dream in a work addressing issues of class, progress and real estate. Her signature style combines the personal and historical, fact and fiction.

Futernick is particularly interested in the post-war period of her parents’ generation, and how it affects the present. US born, the artist has lived in London for over a decade, during which her art has become increasingly focused on her home country.


All proceeds from the sale of RA Editions prints go directly to support the RA Schools.



Marisa J. Futernick is a Los Angeles-based artist, writer and a graduate of the RA Schools. Her work explores expressions of ‘Americanness’, weaving together the personal with the historical and fact with fiction. Born in the US, the artist lived in London for 15 years, during which her work became increasingly focused on her home country. 

She uses a variety of media including photography, film and video, installation, writing, radio, and painting; with the combination of text and image a regular feature throughout.

Featuring real-life cultural critics as fictional characters, How I Taught Umberto Eco to Love the Bomb is the tale of a California road trip, with Futernick serving as driver, tour guide, and American optimist. The book combines original colour photographs with a short story by the artist.



The RA Editions programme generates valuable revenue for the RA and in particular the RA Schools.​​
