— 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 Australia (MCA) in partnership with PYT Fairfield and STARTTS; and The Glass Bedroom, an ABC Arts and Screen Australia documentary webseries.

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. In 2016 Barbara Cleveland presented two new projects for the 20th Biennale of Sydney and the Art Gallery of New South Wales (AGNSW). Their works are held in the collections of the MCA, Campbelltown Arts Centre, Monash University Museum of Art, Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art and the AGNSW.

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