Kate Giles is a recent graduate from Emily Carr University of Art & Design (ECUAD,) having achieved a Bachelors Degree in Visual Arts with a minor in Curatorial Practices. As an artist, her practice is predominantly engaged in experimental installation and fiber sculpture, as well as curating. This orientates her practice towards a mix of personally and art historically informed work. Looking at bodies, the affects of nostalgia, mental illness, and trauma, she uses provisional processes, engaging material to be evocative story-tellers.

Most recently in her curatorial process, Kate Giles has co-curated Intertwined, (2018,) a group exhibition exploring the vast and various ways that textiles are being explored across disciplines at Emily Carr University in Vancouver, BC. As well as having curated her first independent show, Infoisms, (2018,) at the James Black Gallery, Vancouver, BC.
