About this collection

Kate Craig (1947-2002) was a performance artist, costumier, and early pioneer of media and video arts in Vancouver, Canada. Craig was one of eight founders of one of Canada’s earliest artist-run centres, the Western Front. The Kate Craig Archive (KCA) serves as a small but unique archive that details early artistic applications of feminist video work, Vancouver’s art history in the 1970s and 1980s, and the development of artist-run centres in Canada. The KCA is Western Front’s first and only artist’s archive, acquired rather than produced at the Western Front.


The KCA digital collection aims to raise awareness and augment access to Kate Craig’s work, to recognize her labor as an integral part of the development of the Western Front and media arts, a history that has been relatively unrecognized in the past compared to her male associates.
