We are gearing up to leave for Greece next week to attend the openings of two exhibitions that we’re participating in: 2nd Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art and Art Athina: International Contemporary Art Fair.
We’re particularly honored to be included in the Biennale, which is curated by Bisi Silva of the Contemporary Art Centre, Lagos, Nigeria, Gabriela Salgado of Tate Modern, and Syrago Tsiara of the State Museum of Contemporary Art, Greece.
“Megan and Murray McMillan’s work is gifted with an unusual terseness full of meaning; within about one and a half minutes, it visualizes and represents, in exquisite density, simplicity and technical perfection the unformed meeting of two contradictious, implicitly connecting, worlds: one the one hand, the representatives of a declining yet elitist aristocracy, who continue their journey in blessed eternity, while the boat is sinking, without having the faintest worry although the watchful eye of the workers (?) excluded from this circle spies on them with unsolved intentions.
This work consitutes a poetic, social psychograph of the fin de siecle, the dead calm before the storm, the sweet life on the verge of revolution.”
