Rebecca Keller is an artist, professor and writer from Chicago. She creates
site-generated and site-responsive artworks, and often works with public historic sites, complicating and enriching established narratives. She is also drawn to re-invigorating historic tropes and ideas for non site-specific installations and objects. A book about her projects, "Excavating History",
will be published early next year. She has shown her work internationally and is the recipient of numerous awards and grants, including a Fulbright, an
American Association of Museums International Fellowship and the NEA. Her writing about art has been published by museums and journals, and her fiction has appeared in several on-line publications. She teaches at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
