Caitlin McCormack (b. 1988) is a Philadelphia-based fiber artist whose crocheted works acknowledge a familial, trans-generational tradition of craft and externalize experiences with self harm, body dysmorphia, and assault, resulting in an intimate archive of emotive vessels. Exploring themes such as gender and sexuality, the pros and cons of isolation, and Anthropocene hamartia through an uncanny lens, these works contemplate societal reluctance to view gendered craft as art and regard crochet as a behavioral response to apocalyptic conditions. Evoking folklore, medieval botanical imagery, institutional osteological displays, science fiction and cinematic body horror, each object is an artifact of a memory, tethered to a surface and made viewable from a distance.
McCormack has contributed works to solo and group exhibitions at The Mütter Museum (PA), Museum Rijswijk (NL), The Mesa Contemporary Art Museum (AZ), The Taubman Museum of Art (VA), Hashimoto Contemporary (NYC and CA), The Fort Wayne Museum of Art (IN), Feinkünst Krüger (Hamburg), Vanilla Gallery (Tokyo), Rhodes Contemporary (London), Field Projects (NYC), Paradigm Gallery + Studio (PA) and most recently at SPRING/BREAK Art Show in NYC. In addition to holding teaching positions in Philadelphia at The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and Hussian College of Art and Design, McCormack has completed artist residencies at ChaNorth (NY), The Peter Bullough Foundation (VA), and The Wassaic Project (NY). McCormack was the recipient of a Joseph Robert Foundation grant in 2021.
