Rita McKeough

Rita is a Calgary based audio, media installation and performance artist who has taught and exhibited throughout Canada since the late 1970s. Her experience as a radio station disc jockey and drummer for bands led to her introduction of sound elements in her elaborate installations and later to the development of electronic and mechanical objects in interactive environments. Rita has been very fortunate to play with some incredible musicians in bands in Calgary (Sit Comm, Mode d’emploi, Books All Over the Bed) Toronto (Demi Monde) and Halifax (The Permuters, Port Authority, Almost Even, The Confidence Band, Simian Crease). A sample of the amazing musicians she is thrilled to have played with includes: Eli Campanaro, Beth Lenco, Matt Reid, Elaine Stef, Gaby van der Velde, Susan Sturman, Marian Lydbrooke Diane Bos, Harry Vanderlist. Stephen Kelly, Rebecca Young. She is currently in the Calgary band Sleepy Panther with her wonderful friend Richard Brown.
