Katie Hargrave

Assistant Professor and Foundations Coordinator

MFA, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA, 2012
Katie Hargrave joined the faculty at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga as the Foundations coordinator in 2014, after teaching at Alfred University and the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. The outcome of her research varies in every project, including fiber, performance, printed matter, installation, sound, and video. Regardless of the media, viewers become participants rather than simply observing her work. Her work has been shown at Proof Gallery in Boston; Gallerie Analix in Geneva, Switzerland; the Manifesta Biennial in Murcia, Spain; The Philadelphia Art Alliance, and the Athens Institute of Contemporary Art, to name a few.
As an artist, I am interested in a poetic and quiet activism that can exist within the history and politics of life in the United States. Each day the decisions, thoughts and actions we make accrue meaning. It is rarely evident and often hard to imagine, but these tiny moments that fill up our past collectively create our current realities. Using archival and community-sourced research, I make artworks that ideally allow the audience to see themselves as shapers of systems as broad as the environment, the historical record, American political thought. We all have power; we all own this history.
