short biography

Rita McBride (born 1960 in Des Moines/Iowa, lives in Düsseldorf) studied at Bard College, Annandale-on Hudson and at California Institute of the Arts, Valencia with John Baldessari. She is Professor at Kunstakademie Düsseldorf and since 2013 Rector of Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. Her installations, which are often com­bi­ned wi­th per­for­man­ces, act with architectural and sociological structures. To McBri­de her sculptural objects are as important as the processes from which they emerge.
