Black & White Projects is please to present its sixth live residency, featuring the digital and performance artist Laura Hyunjhee Kim. Hosted two to three times a year, BWP’s Live Residency offers the opportunity for artists to create new work within the gallery during open hours. The residency’s goal is to create a space for artists to complete works that go beyond their past scale or scope, and to provide the public with a venue to interact with the artist, ask questions, and see the process of making. Each residency concludes in a solo exhibition that includes work created during their time in the space.
Laura Hyunjhee Kim will be in residence at Black & White Projects from May 16 to June 2, 2016, with public hours on Thursdays & Fridays, 6pm-9pm and Saturdays 11am-3pm. An In-Progress Party will be hosted at the gallery on Wednesday, May 25, 7-9pm. The work created on-site will culminate into a solo exhibition opening Friday, June 3, 7-10pm and on view through June 17.
