TEDxUChicago 2012 - Rebecca Keller - Excavating History

Rebecca Keller's career is deeply interdisciplinary. She's a Fulbright Artist/Scholar, an American Association of Museums International Fellow, recipient of grants from National Endowment for the Arts, Illinois Arts Council, and College Art Association. Her recent projects create research-based "site-complicit' artworks in historic sites. A book about her "Excavating History" projects is newly released by Stepsister Press.?Other aspects of Keller's career include teaching and extensive museum experience (her Fulbright research explored the changing role of arts institutions in Post-Soviet society.) She views her cross-disciplinary, dialogic teaching at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago as central to her art practice. She is also a serious creative writer. Endeavoring to knit the various aspects of her creative life together, or at least to keep them in productive tension, is a major focus of Keller's thinking. As part of that effort, she co-founded YoYoMagazine.Org, an online journal that aims to be a platform where writers, artists and creative researchers engage one another. About TEDx, x = independently organized event. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
