About Mike and Doug Starn
Speaker Mike and Doug Starn, brothers and collaborators, first received critical acclaim in the mid-1980s for their conceptual and physical approach to photography. Their practice became increasingly interdisciplinary, incorporating photography, video, painting, sculpture, furniture design, and architecture. Their first museum showing was at the 1987 Whitney Biennial, and they have since been featured in exhibitions worldwide. Among their most recent commissions are a monumental glass and metal sculpture on the plaza of the Princeton University Art Museum and a 90-foot-long glass wall façade for the U.S. Embassy in Moscow.
