Kate Just joins Hugo Michell Gallery

Adelaide gallery adds new artist to its stable.

Words: Erin Irwin

Adelaide’s Hugo Michell Gallery is now representing artist Kate Just, best known for her textile and craft pieces.

The American-born Australian artist’s practice is highly versatile, using sculpture, installation, neon, photography and knitting to explore social concerns and feminist issues. Alongside her solo works, which advocate for feminist representations of the female body and experience, she often collaborates with community projects to address pressing social issues which affect women, including sexual harassment and violence against women.

Just has received a PhD in Sculpture from Monash University, after completing her Master of Arts at RMIT University and her Bachelors at the Victorian College of the Arts.  She has exhibited her works both nationally and internationally, including at the National Gallery of Australia, the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, the AC Institute in New York, Rijswijk Museum in the Netherlands, Kunsthalle Krems in Austria, Sanskriti Gallery in New Dheli, Youkobo Artspace in Tokyo and Titank Galleria in Finland. Just’s work is included in many public and private collections, such as that of the National Gallery of Australia, Artbank, the Ergas Collection, Wangaratta Art Gallery, Ararat Regional Art Gallery and the Proclaim Management Collection.

Just is also represented by Finkelstein Gallery in Melbourne.
