Synthesizing performative and photographic processes, Japanese-American artist Mimi Kato’s most recent body of work, Wild Corporation, explores the dynamics of power in female relationships through large digital prints and surreal sculptural objects made from everyday office supplies. Initially scheduled to go on view at the Richmond Center during the fall of 2020, our presentation of Wild Corporation premiered online in a special interview format in December 2020: www.wmurichmondcenter.online. Instead of including full reproductions of the artist’s work, this online presentation zeros in on details and specific aspects of the complex themes and processes that underlie Kato’s work. The full exhibition will premiere in the Albertine Monroe-Brown Gallery in the Fall 2021.
