Successful artists tend to put a lot of themselves into their work, but alumnus Kate Gilmore (MFA 2002 Fine Arts) gets physically involved in her art. Gilmore’s video/performance works all feature her as the main character, struggling against her materials and environment—Between a Hard Place features the artist punching and kicking through multiple layers of drywall and plywood; and in Higher Horse, she stands atop a pile of plaster blocks while men with sledgehammers repeatedly strike the precarious platform.
Both of these works are on view in Gilmore’s new self-titled show at Smith-Stewart Gallery (run by Amy Smith-Stewart, a faculty member in the MFA Fine Arts Department), 53 Stanton Street. The exhibition—which is on view through Sunday, January 18, 2009—features three recent video pieces and a site-specific sculpture work that is installed as part of the gallery’s entrance.
