With support and funding from Humanities Washington, the Guest House Cultural Capital Scholar Residency program located in Richland, WA continues this fall 2019 with the arrival of artist and creative scholar Philippe Hyojung Kim. Philippe Hyojung Kim (b. 1989) often experiments with various materials and mediums in response to his immediate surroundings to create poured paint-made objects that exist in the space between painting and sculpture. His work references queer identity, artificiality, and language while refraining from traditional figurative representation. Philippe is a current member of SOIL Artist-Run Gallery and a co-founder/curator of Specialist, an experimental art space in downtown Seattle. Philippe received his MFA in Painting from Central Washington University, and he currently lives and works in Seattle with his husband, Drew, and their dog, Jack.
Philippe will be in residence with the GHCC from September 3-13, 2019 and will be hosting a lecture and artist talk (free + open to the public) Tuesday, September 10 @ 10:30am – 12:00pm @ Washington State University TC, TEST 266 (East Auditorium).
+ Please join us on September 10 @ 10:30am for Philippe’s lecture and extend this invitation to your friends, family, and colleagues. +
