About Megan Hyde
Megan Hyde is an interdisciplinary artist, arts worker, and educator passionate about collaborative art-making, community engagement, and creative learning. Her work is grounded in the belief that creative work can have a profound impact on individual and collective connection, empowerment, and flourishing.
Megan is currently based in Boston, Massachusetts, where she is pursuing an MFA in Studio Art from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University. She has over seventeen years' experience working in art organizations across the US and Australia, including Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery at the University of Western Australia, Goolugatup Heathcote, Paper Mountain, Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College and more.
As a practicing artist, Megan experiments across performance, video, and installation incorporating elements of play, surrealism, fantasy, and participation. Her most recent work seeks to give form to interior spaces of psychological conflict and emotional vulnerability, often from an autobiographical perspective, and to envision alternative possibilities for relating to herself and the world.
As an arts worker, Megan has worked collaboratively with numerous community groups, educators, artists and more to produce a range of programs, from month-long event series, live performances, exhibitions and publications. In all of her work, Megan aims to bring a sense of care, sensitivity, openness, curiosity, and play.
