Megan McMillan was born in 1975 in Dallas, Texas. Murray McMillan was born in 1973 in Dallas, Texas. They live and work in Providence, Rhode Island.

 

 

Megan and Murray McMillan are multidisciplinary artists who have been collaborating since 2002. Their work is a blend of installation, video, performance and photography. While the end result of the work is often video installation, they see the entire process     -from animated digital models and concept drawings to their specific engagement with the people who participate to construction to filming to final installation- as equally essential to their practice.

 

 

Megan McMillan is a full-time faculty member at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

 

Murray McMillan is an associate professor at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island.
