Kate Clark

Anacortes, WA

I'm the lead artist of Parkeology, a public art project that develops community lead installations and events about the hidden histories of civic space. Parkeology has worked with communities and institutions throughout the U.S. to develop work about the unusual, radical, and sometimes violent qualities of public space. Projects have included audio installations about LGBTQ cruising in parks, live face casting events with anthropology museums, and sculpture installations with salvaged artifacts from construction digs. As an interdisciplinary, site-responsive artist, I work collaboratively, often with non artists, including geologists, archivists, park rangers, and archaeologists. 

I currently live in the Puget Sound of Washington State and am deveoping public art projects in Seattle, WA and San Diego, CA. Collaborations have included projects with the Smithsonian Institution, The Osage Nation Museum, Lambda Archives, The Oakland Museum of California, The Museum of Man, and San Diego Parks and Recreation.
