Rita McKeough: Works Book Launch

November 19, 2018

Join us to celebrate the Sackville launch of Rita McKeough: Works, edited by Diana Sherlock. This critical monograph documents McKeough’s collaborative artistic process and pedagogy from the late 1970s on; her interactions with visual and media arts communities in Halifax, Toronto, Vancouver, and Calgary, particularly alternative music and performance scenes; and the audio, installation and performance work that is her ongoing contribution to the contemporary Canadian art community.

Both Rita McKeough and Diana Sherlock will be present. The Rita McKeough: Works publication will be available to purchase, and refreshments will be available throughout the evening. All are welcome to attend.
