Citizen Not Barbarian with Kyungmi Shin
Kyungmi Shin will talk about her recent body of work where she explores her family’s histories, identities and migrations by interrogating global colonialism, its relationship to and effect on the multiple languages that frame who we are, how we see and what we know. Shin intervenes in layers of paintings and photographs to reveal the cultural confluences and exchanges that occurred as a result of western imperialism.
