Rita McKeough (NSCAD MFA 1979) has been working as an interdisciplinary artist for over thirty years, and has contributed to Canada’s strong reputation in performance and installation art. Her work has been shown in artist-run centres, museums, galleries and festivals across the country. Her performances and installations – often complex, collaborative efforts – touch on issues such as displacement, domestic abuse and ecological damage.
A source of inspiration and encouragement for many young artists, McKeough is an instructor at the Alberta College of Art and Design, and taught for several years at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. She is a drummer in a rock band and performs regularly at small Calgary venues. In 2009 she was the winner of the Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts.
