Kate Gilbert is an artist and creative strategist exploring the role the arts and artists play in transforming our cities, our relationships, and ourselves. In her artwork, curatorial projects, and public art consultancy, she strives to facilitate joy and spontaneity and to help propel public appreciation of contemporary art practices.

In her practice, Gilbert employs humor, simulation, and meditative observation to question objects of comfort, the retail systems they operate in, our consumptive behaviors, and our collective fears.

Gilbert is a graduate of Connecticut College (MA ’96) and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA ’13). She lives and works in Boston, MA.
