Katherine Hubbard

Full CV (PDF)

Katherine Hubbard is an interdisciplinary artist whose work engages the intersections of photography, performance, and text. Considering analog photography as a mimesis of the body, Hubbard asks how its procedures might be called upon to investigate social politics, history, and narrative. In her photographs the physical positioning of one’s body has an essential relationship to how one processes images, exploring this encounter as a time-based experience. Hubbard’s writing practice forms the core of her performances, culling the malleability of vision to bridge the imaginary with the familiar.

Solo exhibitions include Avoid glancing blows at Company Gallery; Katherine Hubbard at Higher Pictures; stages at Baxter St. Camera Club of New York; and Bring your own lights at The Kitchen. Her work has been exhibited in group exhibitions including Time Management Techniques at The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Ecstatic Land at Marfa Ballroom, Texas; A Collection of Slow Events at The Luminary in St. Louis, Missouri; The Artist’s Museum at The Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; and Greater New York at MoMA PS1 in 2015. Hubbard’s performances have been presented at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas; Konstfack in Stockholm, Sweden; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Her work is included as part of the permanent collection at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Hubbard received her MFA in 2010 from the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College and is currently an Associate Professor of Art and MFA Graduate Director at Carnegie Mellon University School of Art.
