Artist profile 
Kate Mitchell
Dame Joan Sutherland Fund recipient, Artist
Kate Mitchell was born in Sydney, Australia in 1982 and currently lives and works in Sydney.  She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours and her Master of Fine Arts from the College of Fine Arts, the University of New South Wales, Sydney.  Kate’s video works present the intensive living out of conceived scenarios (often drawn from the slapstick, cartoonish-end of popular culture). She revels in the spirit of endurance, existence, time, and effort, and commits to absurd and sometimes humorous actions, whilst facing up to her own capabilities and limitations of mind and body.

Kate has held solo exhibition at Artspace and Chalkhorse Gallery in Sydney. She has exhibited work nationally and internationally in group exhibitions including: The Anne Landa Award for Video and New Media, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney (2013); Cheerful and Heroic, Southwestern College Art Gallery, San Diego, (2013); Prima Vera, Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney (2012); Magic Undone, Artspace, Sydney (2012), Contemporary Australia: Women, Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane (2012),  NEW12, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne (2012); Error and Judgment, Arts Project Australia, Melbourne (2012); Social Sculpture, Anna Schwartz Gallery, Sydney (2011); The Grip / La Mainmise, Kadist Art Foundation, Paris, (2010); The Horn of Plenty: excess and reversibility, Para-Site, Hong Kong (2009); and The Night of the Sunglasses, Manzara Perspectives, Istanbul, Turkey (2009).

In 2011, Kate travelled to Yokohama, Japan to participate in a residency program BankART Life III in conjunction with Yokohama Triennial.

Kate Mitchell is represented by Chalkhorse Gallery, Sydney.
