Based in Canada, Kent Tate creates artworks that navigate various separate, yet coexisting worlds. Kent has been exhibited internationally at film and new media festivals, symposiums, juried screenings/exhibitions, and solo gallery installations. He has received awards, grants, and artist residencies for his projects from the Banff Centre, the Wallace Stegner house, the Canada Council, BC Arts Council, Hawaii State Arts Foundation, and the Saskatchewan Arts Board. He is currently working on a number of new movies while preparing material for prints, and video - sculptural installations. Beginning in 2016, the AGSC will be touring his Exhibition “Movies for a Pulsing Earth." Kent’s single channel movie “Isolated Gestures” won the Ruth Shaw award (best of Saskatchewan) and was nominated for the Golden Sheaf award (experimental film category) in the 2015 Yorkton Film Festival.
