GAPP Visiting Artist: Kate Bingaman-Burt
Kate Bingaman-Burt is an illustrator and educator. Her work orbits around the objects in our lives: the things we buy, the things we discard, and the collectivity and social interaction that can arise from cycles of consumption. Via illustrations, daily documentation, publications, events, large-scale participatory projects, client work, and a full-time role as an educator, Kate’s work invites a dialogue about contemporary forms of exchange. She is an Associate Professor in Graphic Design at Portland State University and sits on the boards of Design Week Portland, Independent Publishing Resource Center and Octopus Books. Some recent clients include IDEO, Uniqlo, Chipotle and Oprah Magazine. Her newest endeavor is Outlet. Outlet is part illustration space, part workshop space, part print space, part retail space, part zine library and ALL FUN. Outlet opens later this spring in Portland, Oregon.
