bio
Christine Sun Kim uses the medium of sound in performance and drawing to investigate her relationship with spoken languages and her aural environment. Selected exhibitions and performances have been held at: White Space, Beijing (solo); Carroll/Fletcher, London (solo); De Appel, Amsterdam (solo); nyMusikk, Oslo; Sound Live Tokyo, Tokyo; Berlin Biennale; Shanghai Biennale; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Rubin Museum, New York; PS1, New York; and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Kim was awarded TED and MIT Media Lab Fellowships. When not writing emails, she spends time reading celebrity gossip, watching makeup tutorials on instagram and finding the easiest cooking recipes that she's too lazy to try.
