Join us in our upcoming art workshop with mixed media-based artist Eryn Kimura and learn about the importance of community art space and how she utilizes collage as an articulator of memory, identity, placemaking, and self expression. This workshop will include an opening presentation of Eryn Kimura’s process and work, a Q&A session, and a collage workshop.
About Eryn Kimura:
Eryn Kimura (she, they) is a mixed media artist based in San Francisco. Working with collage, she composes cacophonous yet fractal visual symphonies, using fragments from print media and found ephemera. While scrutinizing mechanisms of hegemony in visual culture and memory, Eryn employs the process of collage as alchemy, reimaging, and archiving ancestral pasts and futures.
Eryn Kimura was born and raised in San Francisco, on unceded Ramaytush Ohlone land. She is a fifth generation Japanese-and Chinese-American, via Hawai’i and California. She has lived and worked in Kyoto, Japan and Paris, France. When she’s not collaging, she is writing in her notebook with a fine-tip pen, whale-watching, or baking French pastries.
