Kate (Catherine) Shand Craig (Canadian, 1947-2002) was a multimedia artist whose work spanned costume, film, performance and photography. Craig experimented with role-play and costumes in performance and video. She adopted the camera as a mediating device to challenge the conventions of realist narratives around the female body and the natural landscape. After graduating from Dalhousie University in 1964, Craig met the artist Eric Metcalfe in 1967 while attending the University of Victoria. Together, they assumed the personas of Lady Brute and Dr. Brute and became involved in mail art networks, including Image Bank, International Image Exchange Directory and the first International Satellite Exchange Directory. In 1973, Craig co-founded the Western Front Society along with Martin Bartlett, Mo van Nostrand, Henry Greenhow, Glenn Lewis, Eric Metcalfe, Michael Morris and Vincent Trasov. While serving on the board of directors at the Western Front from 1973 to 1993, Craig curated the Artist-in-Residence Video Program, which provided local and international networks for artists. Her works have been presented nationally and internationally in exhibitions and can be found in the collections of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, Museé d’Art Contemporain de Montréal and the National Gallery of Canada.
