Megan Rodgers grew up moving often inside and outside of the USA. After studying theatre & politics in Massachusetts and Bologna, she helped form a theatre company in Chicago where she performed and produced plays for 5 years. She then completed her MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and started the process of organizing her dreams into DREAM CATALOGUE. Since moving to Basel, she has continued working with dreams, adding to her catalogue and completing DREAM LIBRARY as well as other mixed media artists’ books based on the text of her own dreams. For the last few years, she has had the opportunity to participate in numerous art fairs and collective exhibitions where she has created participatory multi-media installations including OF WATER & BODIES, WHAT WE DIDN’T LEAVE BEHIND and 22 HOMES, projects which address questions of leaving homes and creating new ones. 


Whether in large installations or in her smaller paintings and book projects, her work combines the written word and ideas of miscommunication with found images and ideas of misobservation.
