Artist. Born on December 27, 1936 in Mundare, Alberta, Evelyn Roth studied art, dance, and fencing while living in Edmonton in the 1950s. She moved to Vancouver in 1961, where she became an active participant in the city’s small art scene, particularly Intermedia Society events. During this time, she also worked performatively with Helen Goodwin’s dance company, TheCo. A multimedia community artist, Roth uses discarded materials to create large, soft, frequently interactive sculptures and environments. She has lived and worked in Australia since 1996.
