Summary
  • "American artist Margaret Kilgallen (1967-2001) died at the age of thirty-three, leaving behind and extensive body of work with roots in the long-standing histories of printmaking, American and non-Western folk history and folklore, and feminist strategies of representation. The AAM's exhibition and publication 'that's where the beauty is.', bring to light the visual complexity of Kilgallen's short career and highlight the major themes that unify her multilayered practice. At the core of Kilgallen's practice was the belief that beauty can be found in the humblest of places and that everything should be made by hand--scaled in relation to the human body. Taking the title from Kilgallen's own words, the show and this accompanying catalogue reflect on the lasting power of her ideas and images. They bring front and center an aesthetic that reminds us that we need not only look within the commercial mainstream or readily accessible narratives for inspiration and empowerment. Kilgallen's celebration of the handmade ultimates advocates for a quality of time and emphasizes the importance of individual express."
  • Margaret Kilgallen: that's where the beauty is' is published on the occasion of Kilgallen's first posthumous museum exhibition, and the largest presentation of her work in more than a decade. Using the artist's exhibition history as a chronological tool, that's where the beauty is. examines Kilgallen's roots in histories of printmaking, American and non-Western folk history and folklore, and feminist strategies of representation, expanding the narrative around her work beyond her association with the Bay Area Mission School and the "Beautiful Losers" artists. Kilgallen's graphic, schematic style came from a deep engagement with the handmade in wildly divergent forms-from folk art to letterpress printing to freight train graffiti, among many other sources. 'I like things that are handmade and I like to see people's hand in the world anywhere in the world,' she said, embracing the idiosyncrasies and imperfections that come from hand craft. 'I think that's where the beauty is.' Kilgallen's work, in form and content, celebrates the handmade, making heroes and heroines of those who live and work in the margins and challenging traditional gender roles, hierarchies and mainstream culture
