Megan Young is an interdisciplinary artist underscoring all that is human across technological ecosystems. She explores the rules, codes, and presets of our social and cultural spheres while crafting alternative spaces to imagine otherwise. 

Young’s socially engaged projects, curation, and embodied installations have earned critical acclaim through features in The New York Times, The Atlantic, Hyperallergic, and on National Public Radio (NPR). Exhibition credits include commissions for the Armenia Art Fair, ISEA (Hong Kong), Open Engagement (Chicago), Art Souterrain (Montreal), SPACES (Cleveland), Chicago Cultural Center, and the Ammerman Center Biennial Symposium on Arts & Technology. Recognition includes a Knight Foundation technology grant, CEC ArtsLink residency, and two OAC Individual Excellence Awards.

Young is on faculty at Indiana University and has previously taught for visual and performing arts departments at Baldwin Wallace University, Cleveland Institute of Art, and Kent State University. She holds an MFA in Interdisciplinary Art + Media from Columbia College Chicago and a BFA in Dance from Ohio University.
