About Kate Davis
Born in New Zealand, Kate Davis lives and works in Glasgow. Her work reconsiders what certain histories could look, sound and feel like. This has often involved responding to the aesthetic and political ambiguities of specific art works and their reception, or re-evaluating historical moments that have been marginalised. Informed by successive waves of feminist art and theory, Davis works across a range of media, including moving image, drawing, printmaking and bookworks.
Davis has presented solo exhibitions at: Dunedin Public Art Gallery, NZ; The Drawing Room, London; Temporary Gallery, Cologne; GoMA, Glasgow; Galerie Kamm, Berlin; Museo de la Ciudad and La Galeria de Comercio, Mexico; CCA, Glasgow (with Faith Wilding); Tate Britain, London; Kunsthalle Basel and Sorcha Dallas, Glasgow amongst others. Recent group exhibitions/ screenings/ awards include: Cinenova Presents Now Showing, LUX Cornwall, St Ives; LUX/ BBC Artists and Archive commission; GENERATION exhibition, Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art; HOUSE WORK CASTLE MILK WOMAN HOUSE, Glasgow Women's Library; Art Under Attack, Tate Britain; For Each Gesture Another Character, Art Stations Foundation, Poznan, Poland; eva International 2012, Limerick, Ireland; Olinka or Where Movement is Created, Museo Rufino Tamayo, Mexico City. Forthcoming projects include a solo exhibition at Stills, Edinburgh.
