Minah Kim is an artist and educator in Philadelphia. Her interests about the world evolved throughout reflecting humanity and violence, ambivalence of them within society. Painting and drawing have been language to express herself from a young age, and the connection to the material through touch was strong, clay is letting her travel far away with the process of thinking, laboring, and engaging. Born and raised in South Korea but living cross-culturally, she grew her interests in intersectionality and decoloniality in socio-political contexts. Minah Kim has shown my works internationally and nationally, including Plug Gallery (KS, US), Site: Brooklyn (NY, US), District Clay Gallery (DC, US), HOT BED gallery(PA, US), Sacramento Fine Arts Center(CA, US), Asia Contemporary Ceramic Art Academy (Hangzhou, China), c.r.e.t.a.
