Each artist interprets the medium in unique and innovative ways, while remaining deeply engaged with tradition and respectful of the past.

New York-based artist Kate Gilmore combines humor and physical endurance in her feminist-inspired works to create strikingly memorable performances and videos. Gilmore’s performances typically showcase the artist or other women femininely dressed and engaged in monotonous, physically arduous, and often rather inane tasks that call out and disrupt gender stereotypes. For the Everson, Gilmore presents a selection of video performances spanning more than a decade as well as a new temporary sculptural installation created specifically for the Everson Community Plaza. Linking the indoor and outdoor components, performers will activate the public sculpture throughout the summer.
