Kate E. Schaffer (BS 2006, MLC; MFA 2016, SAIC) is a Milwaukee artist working at the nexus of feminism, queer theory, and Black Aesthetics. Her paintings, writings, and performances explore the fixity and possibility of time and space. She manipulates visual and written language to break and reassemble the grid. Schaffer also creates nowheres and somewheres at the margins of the possible that generate a sense of place and a feeling of displacement.
