Struts welcomes Myung-Sun Kim, our new Open Studio Artist in Residence! Myung-Sun is an artist, a cultural worker, a curator, a ceramicist, an amateur cook, and an occasional brewer of the Korean rice wine, makgeolli. Her work explores questions of belonging, inheritance, silenced histories, foodways, kinship, queerness, rituals, and lineage. Her current research explores the function of art/objects as communal heirlooms and how daily rituals of belonging can further shape our culture and relationships. She has presented work across North America and in Finland, including Art Gallery of Ontario, MOCA Toronto, FADO Performance Art Centre, and Plug In ICA. As a curator, she has led curatorial programming at galleries and festivals including Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival, Inside Out Film Festival, The Theatre Centre, and the Toronto Biennial of Art as the Co-Curator of Public Programming & Learning. She has curated Fugitive Rituals exhibition at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, currently on view until December 4, 2022. Throughout her residency, Myung-Sun will be collaborating with various practitioners to share and exchange rituals for belonging. Stay tuned for upcoming programming!
