Kate Blackmore is a screen-based artist working across contemporary art 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. Barbara Cleveland is represented by Sullivan+Strumpf (Sydney).
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); National Museum of Modern & Contemporary Art (Seoul); and the 2018 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art.
Blackmore has also directed and produced multiple documentary series for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s online arts channel, including the Walkley Award nominated contemporary dance series, THE MOVEMENT (2017). She is currently developing a 30 minute film on artist Margaret Dodd which will premier at the Adelaide Film Festival in 2018.
Blackmore recently completed an M.A. in Visual and Media Anthropology at Freie Universität Berlin and sits on the board of Performance Space (Sydney).
