Artist Talk with Christine Sun Kim

  • Saturday, March 6, 2021 • 11:00 am
  • Virtual Event

Join us for an artist talk with the California-born, Berlin-based artist Christine Sun Kim. Kim explores concepts of sound, its visual representations, and how it is valued by society, from her perspective as part of the Deaf community. She uses performance, video, drawing, writing and sound installation to uncover the depth and complexity of communication, including the politics of voice, listening, and language. In her talk she will discuss her new site-specific mural in the Kemper Art Museum’s atrium, “Stacking Traumas, and its relation to her work with American Sign Language,” musical notation, televisual captioning, and other systems of visual communication to address the intricacies of social exchange and the power of representation. “Stacking Traumas” will be virtually accessible on the Museum’s website in late January.

The program will include ASL interpretation by Denise Kahler and live closed captions.

Free, but registration is required (link to come).

A recording of the program will become available on the Museum’s YouTube channel in the weeks following.
