Kate Rusek

    Kate Rusek assembles highly tactile sculptures, textile, and installation with an emphasis on craft and materiality. Her work transmutes waste and discarded materials into abundant, biophilic structures that interrogate the value
    assigned to objects, the stories told through materials, and notions of what is considered natural versus unnatural.

    Rusek’s previous residencies include the Archie Bray Foundation, Chulitna Lodge, the Hambidge Center, GoggleWorks Center for the Arts, and Vermont Studio Center, among others. You may have seen her otherworldly
    creations in Long Island City, as Rusek created “Imagined Fungal Emergence” at Socrates Sculpture Park as their 2022-23 Devra Freelander Fellow. Rusek is also a 2020 Daytime Emmy winner for her costume and puppet work on Sesame Street.
