Eleanor King presents installations and performances nationally and internationally, most notably at Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (TO), Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Nuit Blanche (TO), Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Confederation Centre Art Gallery (PE), and Galleri F15 in Norway. She received a BFA from NSCAD in 2001, and participated in residencies at The MacDowell Colony, The Banff Centre, Atlantic Centre for the Arts, New Adventures in Sound Art, and the Centre for Art Tapes. She has been awarded grants from the Canada Council and Arts Nova Scotia, and was short-listed for the 2012 Sobey Art Award. Inspired by everyday life, Eleanor's work employs interdisciplinary strategies to create site-specific installations using provisional materials and improvisational methods. Her musical history includes bands The Got to Get Got, The Just Barelys and new all-female group Wet Denim. She teaches media arts at NSCAD University and is Director at Anna Leonowens Gallery in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
