I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing Young Kim on Saturday for the official ArtPrize book that will be coming out later.
As you know, there was a HUGE buzz about Young's installation at 47 Commerce...(here's the first video Josh and I made about his work). It seemed to be the one piece everyone was talking about and most felt strongly that Young Kim deserved to be in the Top 10. Fortunately, he was recognized with a $5000 Curators Award by UICA at the ArtPrize awards ceremony on Thursday night.
I think you'll like Young Kim even more after listening to him talk about his work, his experiences in Grand Rapids and ArtPrize.
