— About

Kate Blackmore is a screen-based artist working across contemporary art, anthropological and cinematic contexts. Her projects aim to extend the theoretical limits of what is traditionally mean by the term ‘documentary’ and often take the form of multi-channel installations.

Since 2007 Blackmore has been a key member of artist collective Barbara Cleveland (with Kelly Doley, Frances Barrett & Diana Smith) whose artistic, curatorial, publishing and educational projects are influenced by queer and feminist methodologies.

Blackmore’s solo and collaborative projects have been shown at the Hayward Gallery (London); Museum of Contemporary Art (Sydney); Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (Brisbane); Artspace (Sydney); 20th Biennale of Sydney; Art Gallery of NSW (Sydney); and National Museum of Modern & Contemporary Art (Seoul). In 2017 Blackmore created two documentary series’ commissioned by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s online Arts channel: The Glass Bedroom and The Movement.

Blackmore recently completed an M.A. in Visual and Media Anthropology at Freie Universität Berlin and sits on the board of Performance Space (Sydney).
