Margaret Kilgallen: that’s where the beauty is.

Foreword by Heidi Zuckerman. Text by Courtenay Finn, Jenelle Porter.

"Untitled" (ca. 2000) is reproduced from 'Margaret Kilgallen: that’s where the beauty is.'

Impure Americana, a slightly acidic nostalgia that evoked sideshows, tramp art and old travel posters with infusions of feminist wit. –Roberta Smith, New York Times

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.

This publication offers a comprehensive look at Kilgallen’s work, revisiting the ongoing legacy and idiosyncratic spirit of one of California’s most innovative artists.

American artist Margaret Kilgallen (1967–2001) died at the age of 33, just as her work was gaining recognition and prominence. She is best known for her association with the Bay Area Mission School—a loosely associated group of artists from the early 1990s—and for her inclusion in the legendary exhibition Beautiful Losers: Contemporary Art and Street Culture (2004).

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Interview

Sarah Nechamkin

that’s where the beauty is., celebrates Kilgallen’s folk-infused aesthetic, and her unique place within the history of feminist art.

Hyperallergic

Kealey Boyd

Kilgallen presses us to acknowledge our superficial judgements, specifically of women, and compels us all to see more deeply.

A new monograph on Margaret Kilgallen, hero of the hand

A new monograph on Margaret Kilgallen, hero of the hand

"I like to see people's hand in the world, anywhere in the world; it doesn't matter to me where it is. And in my own work, I do everything by hand. I don't project or use anything mechanical, because even though I do spend a lot of time trying to perfect my line work and my hand, my hand will always be imperfect because it's human. And I think it's the part that's off that's interesting, that even if I'm doing really big letters, and I spend a lot of time going over the line and over the line and trying to make it straight, I'll never be able to make it straight. From a distance, it might look straight, but when you get close up, you can always see the line waver. And I think that's where the beauty is." — Margaret Kilgallen continue to blog
