Undeclared Crowd - an exhibition as revisiting museum collections. Talk by Hyunjin Kim

Feb 28, 2013

Para/Site is pleased to present a talk by curator Hyunjin Kim, current participant in the PS International Art Residency programme. Kim's seminar will revisit one of her exhibition projects, Plug-in #3: The Undeclared Crowd (2006), curated in the Plug-In series of collection exhibitions at the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, Netherlands. Referencing the unacknowledged or unnamed collective of being or things, The Undeclared Crowd aimed to make a modest intervention into the museum's existing structure in order to create an experience for audiences to encounter space and collection differently. The project relied on a delicate visual language that sought to translate contemporary societal issues into an aesthetic form. For further information on this exhibition, please visit here.
