KATE POCRASS

Born in 1978, Kate Pocrass currently lives and works in San Francisco, California. . She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, and her Master of Fine Arts degree from the California College of Arts and Crafts in San Francisco. Ms. Pocrass produces both independent and collaborative art projects dealing with pedestrian culture and social sculpture. She has developed systematic structures of interaction through socially attuned and ephemeral projects. Ms. Pocrass creates an economical practice that stresses the importance of seemingly mundane moments and often overlooked observations. Her audience often encounters her work outside the gallery via hotlines, bus tours, audio tours, and participatory websites. Consciously avoiding the creation of a persona, so often found in performative work, Pocrass draws on the anonymity of daily experience. These interventions in the public realm craft the myriad interactions of public life into polite, meaningful art encounters. Ms. Pocrass has exhibited work at Southern Exposure, Rena Bransten Gallery, Spanganga, Pond, and New Langton Arts in San Francisco, University of California at Davis??™ Nelson Gallery, Foundation De Appel, Amsterdam, Netherlands, Rooseum in Malmo, Sweden and was selected to participate in Bay Area Now IV, at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, in San Francisco.
