April — May, 2016

Kate Gilmore (b.1975) is a video, performance, installation artist. Having renowned with her tragic comedy-like performance video works in which she is the sole protagonist struggling to escape from the self-constructed obstacles, Gilmore’s concern in her personal female identity as ‘me’ has naturally grown to being women in the society as ‘us’, which has led to social communal empathy beyond ages and places. She lives and works in New York.

Gilmore’s selected exhibitions include the 2010 Whitney Biennial; the Brooklyn Museum; Indianapolis Museum of Art; the J. Paul Getty Museum; Istanbul Museum; and PS1/MoMA Contemporary Art Center. Her work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Brooklyn Museum; Whitney Museum of American Art; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.

mezzaterra11 – flat gallery is a conceptual project space that opens up new interpretations on documentation images of contemporary artworks, by creating meta-linguistic translation as a white cube is compressed to be flat. International artists are invited to present their work with one image that is selected, adapted, and ultimately, printed for the space as a format of a solo show.
