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.

About the Artist:

Myung-Sun Kim is an artist, and a curator. Her work explores questions of belonging, inheritance, silenced histories, foodways, kinship, queerness, rituals and lineage. She has presented her work across North America and in Finland, including Art Gallery of Ontario, MOCA Toronto, FADO Performance Art Centre, and Plug In ICA. As a curator, she has led curatorial programming at galleries and festivals including Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival, Inside Out Film Festival, The Theatre Centre, the Toronto Biennial of Art as the Co-Curator of Public Programming & Learning, and at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre (2022) as a guest curator.
