Exhibition – Rita McKeough: dig as deep as the darkness
Richmond Art Gallery
7700 Minoru Gate
Richmond Art Gallery is excited to present a new media installation by Alberta-based artist Rita McKeough, guest curated by Vancouver artist Dylan McHugh. Dig as deep as the darkness evokes an excavation site, revealing subterranean layers below an imagined city. Sound, video and interactive objects articulate the complex relations of land and human development, highlighting its impact on animal and plant species. The installation offers an immersive experience, depicting the vulnerability of the environment and the forces of resistance in the natural world. Rita McKeough’s work incorporates audio, electronics and mechanical performing objects. She consistently works from a feminist perspective, and her recent work demonstrates her desire to use sound to create a rhythmic voice of agency and empathy to articulate forces of resistance in the natural world.
The artist will be in attendance and give a Talk on Sunday, July 21, 2:00pm
