AURORA LOBBY EXHIBITS
This season, as part of our new Community Partners program, Aurora Theatre is partnering with art students at Berkeley High School and California College of the Arts for our lobby exhibits. Each show will feature student works that have a thematic link to the play. Please take a moment to read about our artists here:
Eunha Kim was born and raised in South Korea and immigrated to the U.S. in 2004. She served as an assistant professor at Defense Language Institute in Monterey, CA after receiving her masters degree. She has been painting and drawing for five years. Having struggled with feelings of displacement, cultural clashing, and disorientation between past and present, she constructs a vivid visual vocabulary portraying anxiety, alienation, and a desire to belong. Humor and joy frees the image from homogeneity. Kim uses traditional Korean masks to represent herself as well as the unknown. The theatricality of the masks accentuates and exaggerates the complexities of humanness. Kim poses thought-provoking and challenging questions regarding race, class, and gender.
