Colin McMullan

Emcee C.M., Master of None, is Colin McMullan. We often credit our work to a loose collective entity called the K.I.D.S. (Kindness and Imagination Development Society), as a way of diffusing expectations of authorship.

Colin grew up in a working class homeschooling family in Connecticut, played outside a lot, wrote stories and songs, worked in a Siberian village for a year of winter, got an MFA in Sculpture at UConn, worked on some farms, moved to New York to do odd jobs, and through it all developed a personal practice of active, cooperative, public work often utilizing vehicles, play, conversation, publications, and food.

The K.I.D.S. is everywhere and everyone. If our work is how we define ourselves, then our life is work, our work is life, and it is our life’s work. Work describes what we do when we are actively engaged in living. To work is the basic activity of being alive. We have received institutional support from LMCC, IPG, CAG, ISCP, CUE, CBA, BHK, BBBP, Eyelevel BQE, Smack Mellon, Skowhegan, Bronx Museum, Flux Factory, the Aldrich, Artspace New Haven, I-Park, and el Taller Boricua.
