Artist Gallery Talk with Megan and Murray McMillan
Thursday, March 19, 2020 at 5:30pm
Institute of Contemporary Art at MECA&D
Free and open to the public
The artists make large scale projects that result in short videos, installations and photographic series. Constructing complex, architectural sets that become stages for video and photography, the McMillans create works that offer a window into seemingly impossible worlds. Finding a connective thread between the temporality of video and the observational distance of photographs, their works imaginatively situate the viewer inside metaphorical, fabricated environments such as the coal bin of a decommissioned power plant or a small boat circling an island in the Gulf of Finland. Employing a varied lexicon of elements throughout their work – vessels of transport, theatrical stages, bridges, passageways, rooms – the McMillans create magical, transportive journeys. Some Things We Can Do Together features fifteen years of the McMillans’ collaborative work. Learn more about the exhibition here.
