Kate Strachan In-Person Artist Talk
Tuesday, September 26, 2023
In-Person Artist Talk, 4:00 – 5:00 p.m.
NCECA emerging artist Kate Strachan will give an in-person artist talk about her art practice.
Kate Strachan is an interdisciplinary artist, whose clay work integrates various materials such as fiber, wax, and wood to form manuscripts, sculpture, installations, and video art. The doctrine of her Pennsylvania Dutch roots forms a basis on which layers of femininity, dark humor and questioning are all orchestrated together. Kate’s work is viewed as a collection of both relics and texts conveying and preserving the routine of action, sexuality and silence.
She earned a BFA from the Fashion Institute of Technology SUNY with a focus on fiber. After a drastic career change Kate became apprentice for two years in Kanazawa, Ishikawa Japan. It was there she was able to connect with her sensitives to beauty, touch and austerity. Following her apprenticeship, she relocated to Taiwan to complete her MFA at the Tainan National University of the Arts.
While working both in Asia and the US, she is a recipient of 2020 Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Park Exchange (supported by the Agency for Cultural Affairs Japan), 2023 NCECA’s Emerging Artist Award, and, most recently, has been awarded a scholarship for 2024 EKWC Residency (Supported by the Dutch Government). In 2022, her work was selected for Taiwan’s Yingge Ceramic Museum Biennial.
The talk is free and open to the public. No registration necessary.
