JIYEON KIM – MEME PAINTINGS
June 9-27th 2020
Tuesday – Saturday, 2-9pm
The solo exhibition of Meme Paintings by South-Korean artist Jiyeon Kim explores ways of representing the individual in our digital era. Most of Kim’s work uses acrylic paint, and combines elements of abstraction with figuration. Deeply invested in reinterpreting the art of portraiture in a contemporary way, she focuses on the ways in which our attitudes toward depictions of the human face and figure have changed with the rise of the internet and digital technology.
After the pandemic break, artist residencies at SomoS Berlin Artist-in-Residence Program are again possible.
Several new discount options, as well as a “Virtual Artist Residency,” are available, aiming to help artists in these precarious times. We urge artists to use this period to apply for funding; as many Art Councils and funding bodies are again active. Inquiries for specific periods are welcome and residents will be accepted on a rolling basis.
