High school photography course & exhibit
Making Meaning with Photography
February - June 2022
Essex Street Academy at 350 Grand Street, NY, NY.

I taught a 2x/week photography elective at a high school in lower Manhattan. Sixteen ninth and tenth graders learned photography basics using digital cameras and phones. Then I printed and framed four images of each student + wall text, for our final group show in the halls of ESA.

Photo + Synthesis | 2019
Just the Facts | 2017
In 2016, I founded LightField, a nonprofit that mounts exhibits of multimedia art whose aim is to illuminate social and environmental issues. We have mounted three multi-artist shows, with programming, at Hudson Hall in Hudson, NY. In each exhibit, we include work from our Young Photographers Workshop, a free workshop for teens from underserved areas around Hudson, that teaches visual literacy as a way to sharpen individual agency in young people.
 
Our 2019 show, Photo + Synthesis, centered on modern and 19th century landscapes of the Hudson River Valley, tree ring science, and data visualization.

Our 2017 show, Just the Facts, touched on themes of segregation, immigration, home, desire, and individual agency.
 
Our 2016 show, Making a Scene: Storytelling and the Real, addressed the increasing slippage in narrative art between documentary and fiction.

A large-scale exhibit of escapist photo collages in a corporate lobby
KangHee Kim: Street Errands
May 21 - Sept 18, 2019
Vornado Realty Trust lobby at 522 W. 22 Street, NYC

I curated and produced a large-scale exhibit by KangHee King called Street Errands for Vornado Realty Trust's lobby. Street Errands is a series of collaged photographs approximately 60" x 72", that combine street scenes of New York with scenes of other places KangHee has traveled to throughout the US.

 

As a DACA participant, KangHee's goal in combining images is to construct her own form of surreal escapism. To be in DACA is to live in a limbo of waiting for word about her status. Layering real life photographs allows a bit of liberation from the visa restrictions, but also allows her to remain hopeful and appreciate what she has in the present.

 

KANGHEE KIM is a photographer working in the United States. She is represented by Benrubi Gallery. She has had multiple solo and group exhibitions, most recently, Dreamerscapes, at Wave Hill, Bronx, NY, and at D Museum in Seoul, South Korea.
