Kate Gilmore, A Tisket, A Tasket, 2013 (Still). 
Kate Gilmore’s last exhibition, A Tisket, A Tasket, at the University Art Museum at the University at Albany was reviewed on Art Fag City. 

With all of the domestic elements of Gilmore’s work, it’s easy to read this as a fairly straightforward feminist critique. But this feels more local to individual artistic practice; if Gilmore is Sisyphus, then her boulder is art supplies. Ink, plaster, paint, wood are all obstacles to be perpetually overcome. The hurdle becomes even clearer in new work like A Tisket, a Tasket, a ten-foot-tall homemade step pyramid up which Gilmore to pushes baskets full of paint (the by-product sits next to the video screen). The pyramid recalls a thousand artist narratives about arduous process, pushing the limits of your mind and body with the expectation that something transcendent will result.
