School of Music Visiting Artist
Ms. Kim will give a presentation of her work, with an emphasis on the more recent projects. Then open it up to discussion about sound/image, multimedia collaboration, site-specificity, analog meets digital, improvisation, structured improvisation, performative contexts,...plus any burning topics that are in the minds of the students.
Carole Kim is a media artist with a focus on video projection for multi-media installation, performance and photography. She has a very hands-on, tactile approach to the materials she works with, pushing the moving image to take on optical, spatial and dimensional form. She is interested in the integration of disciplines where all media are on a level playing field working in tandem towards creating the entirety of an experience.
Her work has been supported by the Irvine Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, Center for Cultural Innovation, MAP fund, City of Los Angeles, Pasadena Arts Council, The Music Center, Durfee Foundation, REDCAT, University of California Institute for Research in the Arts (UCIRA), The Getty Center, Society for the Activation of Social Space through Art and Sound (SASSAS) ,Dublab, Newtown, Turbulence.org, CalArts, and The Center for Experiments in Art, Information, and Technology. She was selected as a recipient of a 2013 COLA Fellowship, 2014 CCI Investing in Artists Grant, 2015 Metabolic Studio Chora Council Grant and a 2015 CHIME Grant. This spring she was awarded a residency at the Headlands for the Arts. She is also currently an artist-in-residence at Descanso Gardens working on a year-long project that will culminate in a solo exhibition and site-specific performances in the gardens from July-October 2019.
