Exhibition Opening Reception: Friday, January 27, 6-8pm
In the Fall of 2016 MFA candidate in ceramics, Yeonsoo Kim, tasked himself daily with the job of creating a new hand-built vessel or mask. The works, in accumulation act as a type of diary, or as he describes it a call "to listen to your inner voice." In Listening, Kim presents these works that explore identity and psychological conditions through the marking and making of daily life.
