Lucy Kim

Lucy Kim is a visual artist who combines painting with mold-making and casting, using the latter as a sculptural surrogate for photography. By offsetting these old technologies, she explores the mechanisms, such as distortion and projection, that are involved in the transition from subject to image. Kim received her BFA in Painting from Rhode Island School of Design in 2001 and her MFA in Painting and Printmaking from the Yale School of Art in 2007. Recent exhibitions of her work were held at the ICA Boston, Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, Institute of Fine Arts-NYU, deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lisa Cooley, Lyles and King, and Klaus von Nichtssagend among others. She is the recipient of the ICA Foster Prize, Artadia Award, MacDowell Fellowship, Ellen Battell Stoeckel Fellowship, and the Mass Cultural Council Grant, and has participated in artist residencies at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, MacDowell Colony, and the Broad Institute. Kim lives in Cambridge, MA and is Assistant Professor of Fine Arts at Boston University.
