Side Streets Presents Christine Kim

Co-presented by The Theatre Centre and City of Craft

Reception: Monday, September 25, 2017 from 6–8:00pm
Celebrate the launch of Christine Kim’s Side Streets exhibition along with the artists featured in the Objectorium, Ness Lee (also exhibiting in the Library Gallery) and rcboisjoli.

The Theatre Centre and City of Craft are proud to co-present Side Streets, an ongoing series of hanging installations at The Theatre Centre Café.

The launch of the 2017/2018 season presents an installation by illustrator and paper-based artist Christine Kim. She considers the nature between public and private spaces. Intricate and complex paper realizations of three architectural elements – the spiral staircase, the balcony, and the window – are in-between spaces brought indoors. Porous patterns create permeable boundaries, filtering light and projecting shadows from the exterior world.

Christine Kim works in cut paper art to create layered collages, sculptures and installations. She is interested in permeable boundaries that take the shape of fences, lace and patterned screens. Her work has been published in Paper Play, Paradise of Paper Art, and Alchemy: The Art and Craft of Illustration.

A collaboration between City of Craft and The Theatre Centre, Side Street installation series are curated by Kalpna Patel. The 2017/2018 season of Side Streets—entitled Conceal/Reveal—examines culture and technology as it relates to contemporary craft practices. To find out more, please visit City of Craft’s website.
