Sally McKay is an art writer, independent curator and artist. She teaches studio art and art history at McMaster University. In 2014, Sally completed her PhD in Art History and Visual Culture at York University. In her dissertation, Repositioning Neuroaesthetics Through Contemporary Art, she argues that certain artworks, when encountered in art world contexts, can facilitate embodied knowledge about perceptual cognition.

From 1997-2003, Sally was co-owner/editor with Catherine Osborne of the Toronto art magazine Lola. Since that time she has continued to publish numerous essays and reviews on Canadian art, she has curated several major exhibitions, and continues to perform and exhibit her own art projects.
