Artist's Bio

Interdisciplinary artist Kathryn Cellerini Moore is a nerd and a space-maker who collaborates with architecture, landscape and community. In a political climate that fabricates and serves us unhelpful dichotomies to live by, Moore feels urgency to create moments for people to reflect on our interconnectedness to one another. Blending her training in both the arts and sciences, Moore’s art dives into the psychology and physiology of trauma, coping, and healing, the relationship of memory to identity and place, and most recently, the influence environment has on our well-being. How can we meaningfully we engage with the microscopic and macroscopic ecosystems we are a part of?

Kathryn Cellerini Moore's artwork was curated into the Month of Performance Art in Berlin, Germany, the Does Live Art Have to Be Experienced Live? performance art series at SOIL Gallery in Seattle, WA, and the experimental performance event Collective Becoming: Expressions of Love, Freedom and Resistance at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago. Her work was exhibited in venues including The Art and History Museum in Maitland, FL; Duplex Gallery in Portland, OR; The Schneider Museum of Art in Ashland, OR; The McDonough Museum of Art in Youngstown, OH; The Center of Contemporary Art (CoCA) in Seattle, WA; Hunter College Times Square Gallery in NY, NY; and Besse Gallery at Bay College, Escanaba, MI. Moore presented her research at the first Mokuhanga Conference in Kyoto and Awaji, Japan, and was recently an artist-in-residence at PLAYA Summer Lake, TEDx, and Djerassi Artist Residency Program. In 2020, Moore joined the Oregon Art Commission’s Art in Public Places artist roster.
