Presented on Zoom
The title of Dawn Kim’s artist talk, “If it ain’t the windmill, it’s the cows,” comes from an old farming idiom. It refers to the constancy of roving problems that arise in labor and living. This lecture will cover Kim’s failures as an artist, one after the other, some of which involved her cows, her windmill, and her work. This event is presented in conjunction with our current exhibition: Half Rest and Windows on Latimer installation Fourteen Freedoms.
