Christine Sun Kim: Oh Me Oh My

Christine Sun Kim: Oh Me Oh My is the artist’s first full-scale solo museum exhibition in North America. In her work, Kim engages with how we experience and conceptualize sound to challenge the notion that it is a solely auditory experience and to foreground sound as a multidimensional visual, physical, and political experience. Kim, whose first language is American Sign Language (ASL), explores and employs elements from various information systems, including musical notation, infographics, and ASL, using these systems to develop her own dryly humorous visual vocabulary in a variety of mediums including performance, drawing, video, lecture, and more. Kim’s works highlight, interrogate, and celebrate the complexities of social interaction between people across different positionalities and modes of communication.
She has exhibited and performed internationally, including at the Whitney Museum, New York; the Art Institute of Chicago; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; De Appel Arts Center, Amsterdam; the Rubin Museum of Art, New York; the Berlin Biennale; the Shanghai Biennale; and the Museum of Modern Art, New York, among many others. Kim was awarded an inaugural Disability Futures Fellowship by the Ford Foundation as well as an MIT Media Lab Fellowship and a TED Senior Fellowship. Christine Sun Kim: Oh Me Oh My is organized by the Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver, British Columbia; Remai Modern, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan; the Gund Gallery at Kenyon College, Gambier, Ohio; and The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, New York. A full-color catalogue will be forthcoming.
