On August 1st, Clara Kim will leave her position as gallery director and curator at REDCAT in Los Angeles to join the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis as senior curator of visual arts alongside chief curator Darsie Alexande. The Walker is a multidisciplinary institution whose program spans visual art, performance, film, theater, lectures and music. This relocation will mark Kim’s return to her curatorial roots—she was a Lila Wallace curatorial intern at the Walker in 1998.

A graduate from the University of California at Berkeley and the University of Chicago, Kim joined REDCAT as assistant curator under the supervision of Eungie Joo and in 2008 became the gallery director and curator, working with artists such as Haegue Yang, Dave McKenzie, Chen Chieh-jen, Walid Raad, Park Chan-Kyong and Sean Snyder. Her recent, acclaimed project was the 2009 “Small Case Study House”, a three month residency installation by Tokyo architecture firm Atelier Bow Wow, and she co-curated the 2010 Media City Seoul. She is currently working with Lee Bul on her first US solo show at the San Francisco Art Institute in 2011.
