REVENGE OF THE FUN

November 4 - December 2

Free

The work of local artists Tom Kim, a.k.a. “Death by Narwhals,” will be on display for the next month at Rhizome. With a focus on drawings and paintings, Kim’s REVENGE OF THE FUN seeks to bring the viewer into those fictional spaces where stories shapes our beliefs and morals, “where viewers can get lost in a myth, sensation, or memory while feeling both connected and alone.” Of his work, he says he draws from his “experiences growing up as a Korean American latchkey kid.  I was born in DC — the first of my family born in America.  I was raised by my mother, sister, and some form of television.  Together, we moved across the country living in North Dakota, California, Texas, and New York.  With each move, I struggled to adapt and assimilate.” The opening reception takes place Friday, Nov. 4, 7 to 10 p.m. and will feature performances by DJ Killr Flowr and Peyman Allahvirdizadeh.
