Go for Baroque: Opulence and Excess in Contemporary Art features Kate’s Zipper Jewelry and three of her oversized "Tiffany Wigs" made from plastic-wrap at the Racine Art Museum.

Exhibit runs through September 4, 1016.

Racine Art Museum
441 Main Street, Racine, WI 53403

The exhibit features artists that comment on luxury, artificiality, consumption, ornament, and the line between the beautiful and the grotesque. Whether a wall installation composed of silver reflective woven strips of paper, polymer works that look like banquet centerpieces, or extravagant, colorful jewelry, these artists investigate contemporary cultural, social, and historical ideas. 

Many thanks to Lena Vigna for including Kate's designs.
