Tina Keane


Tina Keane studied fine art and film-making in London and her works and installations use film, video and digital technologies. While a research fellow at Central Saint Martins College of Art, Keane turned her attention to the internet, and was a pioneer in the field of digital creativity.

She has exhibited widely, both nationally and internationally, and has been artist in residence at various institutions, including the Banff Centre in Canada. She was a founder member of Circles – Women in Distribution, and curator and programmer of exhibitions and screenings such as The New Pluralism exhibition at the Tate (with Michael O'Pray). Tina Keane has won awards from the Arts Council, Channel 4, the British Council and London Production Board. She was Lecturer in Film and Video at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, London from 1982-2012 and was a Research Fellow at the College from 2003-2012. Her film Beauty in Motion was shown at the 2013 London Film Festival. Tate has recently acquired her film Faded Wallpaper.
