October 11, 2012 | 4:00 - 6:00 PM
Illingworth Kerr Gallery | ACAD
The Illingworth Kerr Gallery (IKG) and ACAD are pleased to launch ‘The Lion’s Share’ at the IKG from 4:00PM to 6:00PM on Friday, September 21, 2012. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Commissioned for the University of Lethbridge Art Gallery’s Food Series, Calgary-based artist and ACAD instructor in MADT at ACAD, Rita McKeough created a mock restaurant in the gallery with found and constructed objects, kinetics and sound. The exhibition used a humorous and dream-like scenario to raise questions about the complexities of our relationship to eating animals.
The accompanying 64-page exhibition book for ‘The Lion’s Share’ includes colour illustrations and essays by Josephine Mills and Elizabeth Diggon.
Rita McKeough and Josephine Mills will be in attendance to sign copies of this unique publication.
