Artist-led Walkthrough: Gala Porras-Kim on Only the Young: Experimental Art in Korea, 1960s–1970s

  • This is a past program

Join Gala Porras-Kim for an artist-led walkthrough of Only the Young: Experimental Art in Korea, 1960s–1970s

Capacity is limited. Visitors will be admitted on a first come, first served basis.


Gala Porras-Kim (b. 1984, Bogotá) lives and works in Los Angeles and London. Her work is about the social and political contexts that influence how intangible things, such as sounds, language and history, have been framed through the fields of linguistics, history and conservation. The work considers the relationship between a historical past and contemporary motivations of its representation, and how objects also shape the contexts in which they are placed. She has had solo exhibitions at Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo (MUAC), Mexico City, The Fowler Museum, Los Angeles, Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporaneo, Seville, Kadist, Amant Foundation, Gasworks, London, CAMSTL, MCA Denver, Leeum Museum of Art and MMCA in Seoul. Her work has been included in the Whitney Biennial and Ural Industrial Biennial (2019), and Gwangju and Sao Paulo Biennales (2021) and Liverpool Biennial (2023). She was a Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University (2019), the artist-in-residence at the Getty Research Institute (2020-22), and currently a fellow at Museo delle Civiltà in Rome.
