Kate McMillan is an artist, academic, and artistic researcher whose work is dedicated to exploring the afterlives of colonialism, the lived experience of migration, and the narratives of women and migrants through complex evocative site-specific installations.
Her latest work, Never At Sea is richly symbolic work developed for St Mary Le Strand Church in the heart of historic central London. The piece explores the interconnection between climate crisis and refugee experience. In the episode Kate tells us all about how she brought together so many strands of artistic enquiry, and shares with us her research on how the arts industry continues to stratify people based on identity, gender, and biography.
This episode features music from Never At Sea composed by Cat Hope.
