Kate Howard

Goldsmiths MFA Award
2018/19

Kate Howard's experimental sculptural practice investigates notions of gender and sexuality, playfully challenging and undermining prevailing sculptural traditions. Undermining the proposed virility of masculine modernist sculpture, Kate’s work actively challenges expectations of art and the gaze between viewer and art object.

Kate was selected for the 2018/19 Goldsmiths MFA Award by Natasha Hoare (Curator, Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art), artist David Batchelor and Charlie Coffey (Residencies & Awards Manager, Acme) from a shortlist of six MFA graduate artists from Goldsmiths, University of London.

Upon completing their residency in September 2019, Greta presented Out of Shape at PEER alongside fellow early career programme artists Greta Davies and Marylyn Molisso, whose practices also centre on large-scale installation and sculpture.

Goldsmiths MFA Award

The Goldsmiths MFA Award is a partnership between Acme, Goldsmiths, University of London and Jane Hamlyn. With the goal of providing a bridge between college and professional practice, the award includes a bursary, rent-free studio space and a mentoring programme tailored specifically to the graduate’s practice. Recipients of Acme’s early career programme occupy shared studio space in order to foster and encourage a greater degree of peer support and an environment of growth, risk-taking and excellence.
