From the vault: Ken Lum on Artblog Radio

We're excited to have Ken Lum as a panelist on the Activism, Evangelism, Art discussion that we're co-hosting with Slought! Join us on Monday, March 23 at 6:30 pm to hear Ken talk with Amy Sadao, Pepón Osorio, and Aaron Levy about how artists and communities interact in Philly.

Ken Lum talks with us Nov. 12, 2013

Ken Lum moved to Philadelphia in 2012 to head up the Fine Arts Undergraduate Program at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design. Right now, you can see work by Ken at his solo exhibition, The Mini-Mall Series, at Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery. AND, coming in March, his work will be featured in the 2014 Whitney Biennial!

In our podcast, Ken talks about how he switched from a career in science to one in art. He talks about his idea for a “Negative History” or “Ambivalent Monuments” Festival in Philadelphia. Lum studied with Jeff Wall and Ian Wallace, and his work has represented Canada at Documenta XI, the Carnegie International and many biennials around the world. See his Wikipedia page for more.
