About the Program:
Myung-Sun Kim’s ongoing project, ‘Rituals for Belonging’ invites artists of various disciplines to share rituals that may recall joy, desire, and belonging. These rituals, such as recipes, meditations, or call to actions, offer sustenance and the possibility of personal transformation and collective liberation, and are encompassed in the objects on exhibition.
