Brief Biography:

Megan Dickie is an artist who works in the mediums of sculpture, video and printmaking. Her artistic research focuses on the seductive tension that exists between reason and play. Dickie explores this concept by subverting systems and structures with critically deployed humour. Her most recent project uses video games as a platform to question the competitive structure of contemporary art and our enduring fascination with watching human struggle.

Megan Dickie received her MFA from the University of Saskatchewan (Saskatoon, 2002) and a BFA from the University of Calgary (1997). Her works are part of the collections of the University of Saskatchewan, Alberta Foundation for the Arts and the Nickel Arts Museum.
