Kate Haug is a San Francisco based artist. She was a curatorial fellow at the Whitney Independent Study Program and received her MFA from UC San Diego. Haug’s reading is the outcome of a recent San Francisco Arts Commission project on the Summer of Love, which lead to her obsession with Joan Didion’s 1967 essay Slouching Towards Bethlehem. Her piece, Santa Cruz, investigates California’s hedonism’s, privileged liberalism and aspirational conflicts, riffing on the state’s condition 50 years after the publication of Didion’s prescient essay. Recent exhibitions include the Museum of Capitalism, Museum of Contemporary Art, Tucson and Irving Street Projects. Her award-winning films have been screened at New Directors/New Films, the London International Film Festival and other international venues.
