SITUATE / 6 May to 7 July 2019
Kate McWilliam is the recipient of a 2019 studio residency award at the RMIT SITUATE studios in Melbourne.
Kate McWilliam shifts notions of masquerade from deceptive to revelatory through her photographic practice. Simultaneously seductive and repellent, her self-portraits prompt viewers to consult their own preconceptions, beliefs and fears, and to question the assumptions of dominant discourse. Kate’s work has been exhibited in Australia and internationally. Her 2017 project received awards from both RMIT and CCP in Melbourne and was exhibited at the 2018 Pingyao International Photography Festival in China. Upon graduating from RMIT in 2018 with Honours 1st Class in the Bachelor of Arts (Photography) (Honours) program, Kate was awarded an RMIT SITUATE Residency in Melbourne for 2019.
This award is generously supported by the RMIT School of Art.
