Kate Hoffman

The Baltimore project consists of three parts; a sculpture, a projected diorama, and an animation. The project titled, "A Monument to Good Intentions" evolved from the experience of a mugging, growing into an investigation of the variables that surrounded the event. Rather than asking the questions of "why" and "how", the narrative of the incident is complicated through a theoretical and literal zooming in and out of the moment of the mugging. This gesture of crime in Baltimore becomes a vantage point from which to produce a variety of readings of the city, across urban, geological, architectural and personal histories; where violence and desire converge.

Kate Hoffman was born and raised in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She studied at the Center of Art and Culture in Aix-en-Provence, France, and received her BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2002. After completing residencies at Est-Nord-Est in Quebec, Canada and at Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge in 2005, she entered the MFA program at University California San Diego.
