Kate Gilmore: Body of Work

Books

MOCA

This catalog was produced on the occasion of MOCA Cleveland’s 2013 exhibition Kate Gilmore: Body of Work, a survey of Gilmore’s practice that brought together five key works on video, a newly commissioned video and installation, and a public performance with actors. Messy and chaotic, Gilmore’s performance-based video works show the artist confronting absurd physical challenges. At times, her actions appear laughable and doomed to fail. At others, the artist rages in a mode of creative destruction, provoking a complex range of responses, from pity and amusement, to empathy and admiration.

 

The catalog includes exhibition documentation and critical essays by the exhibition’s co-curators, David Norr and Rose Bouthillier. The texts considerGilmore’s contemporary reassessment of both hardcore and feminist performance practices that emerged in the 1960s and 70s, which explored physical limits and social norms, often through exposure and endurance. Drawing from this history, Gilmore creates a personal, persistent, and tragi-comic method, using her body as a site to articulate female identity, artistic labor, and resistance.
