Katie Rauth is a fat, queer multidisciplinary artist working between sculpture, performance, community organizing, and curating. Through her own practice, she is involved in supporting dialogue around medical fatphobia, urging questions about the morality placed on consumption. They draw from Dutch Protestant vanitas imagery and personal experiences with etiquette to explore the dynamics of power and control in public and private concerns around health and wellness.
A former staff member and artist-member alumnus of Vox Populi Gallery in Philadelphia, PA, Rauth supported the organization from 2014-2020, serving as Exhibitions Chair for her final two years. They are a recipient of the Leeway Foundation Art and Change Grant and the City of Philadelphia’s OACCE Creative Avenues Grant, and have been invited as a guest artist at Drexel University and University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Rauth graduated with her BFA in Sculpture from Arcadia University in Glenside, PA in 2014.
