Gallery at REDCAT

$15,000 toward a survey exhibition on the painter with accompanying catalogue, organized by gallery director and curator Eungie Joo and assistant curator Clara Kim. Born in Washington, DC Kilgallen grew up in Kensington, MD before receiving her MFA from Stanford University. Through their simple forms, flat color and line, Kilgallen’s paintings and wall installations explore the culture of immigrants, railway workers and everyday people and bring to light the personal tales and letterforms of American folk traditions buried beneath official history.
