About Me

Meghan Judge is an artist and early career researcher. She has been a fellow at the Oceanic Humanities for the Global South project at the Wits Institute for Social and Economic Research (WiSER) at the University of the Witwatersrand where she brought the materiality of the ocean into conversation with decolonial literature via experiences of traversing the Indian Ocean. She is a founder of the Africa Nosy (island) Art Echange, which operates in the Southern African and Western Indian Ocean region as a platform for artistic exchange despite geo-specific barriers, and has partaken in residencies, art festivals and exhibitions internationally, with her film work moving in global circuits. Meghan’s PhD focused on developing a transdisciplinary praxis for inquiring through elemental media and weathering activities in the ocean that deconstructs power in ocean-human relations. She currently focuses on the sonic as a sensory mode for expanding oceanic perceptions. Her recent solo exhibition Static Drift showed at the Wits Art Museum, and filmic broadcast series The Lonely Sailor Weather Report traveled global film circuits.
