Sally McKay

artist, art writer, curator, teacher, art coach



I am an artist, curator, art writer and educator based in Hamilton, Ontario. My art and research deal with cognition, consciousness and social structures at the intersections of art and science. I work in performance, installation and digital media and I frequently collaborate on art projects with my partner, Von Bark.

Right now I am serving as co-chair of the board at Hamilton Artists Inc., as well as researching, writing, editing, grant-writing, coaching, consulting, conducting workshops, working on freelance projects and making art.  

From 2012-2018, I was teaching full time on a series of contractually limited appointments at McMaster University. I still teach there occasionally on a part-time basis.

I completed a PhD about neuroaesthetics in Art History and Visual Culture at York University in 2014.

From 1997-2003, I worked with Catherine Osborne as co-owner and co-editor of Lola Magazine in Toronto, which I co-founded along with Catherine and John Massier.
