Artist Talk: Kim Abeles

Kim Abeles will focus on her noted pollution work and a two-year project she has just completed that will be a permanent public artwork at the Anderson Munger Family YMCA in Koreatown. Kim’s talk will also touch upon ideas about community and institutional involvement with projects, including what is now called “crowd-sourcing.” In 2009, Abeles used Facebook to ask people to send a photo of their profile. Silhouettes in Smog translates those portraits into smog images. She will also share previous projects and the tricky politics thate merges when air pollution becomes a core issue in artwork. Two works by Abeles are included in the exhibition Enriching and Engaging. This is a Free Event.
