— About

Kate Blackmore is an artist and filmmaker whose work draws on documentary and ethnographic practices and often takes the form of multi-channel video installations. Through her projects, she is interested in developing forms of representation that take their relevance from the friction and engagement with social and political reality. In 2016 Blackmore presented two new screen commissions: All Wedding Wishes for the Museum of Contemporary Art as part of the C3West Initiative, in partnership with Powerhouse Youth Theatre and STARTTS; and The Glass Bedroom, an ABC Arts and Screen Australia documentary series.

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

Blackmore is currently completing an MA in Visual and Media Anthropology at Freie Universität Berlin.
