This Fall, the Sotheby’s Institute of Art-New York MA in Contemporary Art curatorial course will be mounting a series of exhibitions at our campus in midtown Manhattan. You’re invited to the opening receptions for our student-curated exhibitions. Learn more about the exhibition series.

Sotheby’s Institute of Art is pleased to present Behind the Scenes of Your Fantasy, a solo exhibition of paintings by emerging artist Hojae Kim, curated by Master of Art Business candidates 2018 Crystal Lou, Sarah Nam, and Bingjin Zheng. The exhibition is located in the student commons on the sixth floor of the New York campus on 570 Lexington Ave, New York, NY 10022 and is free and open to the public but requires preliminary registration.

Hojae Kim (Born 1993) lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. He immigrated from Korea to Los Angeles, the motion picture capital of the world, at the age of 11. He graduated from Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) with a BFA in Painting in 2016. His many jobs, including being a stage painter, muralist, club promoter, streetwear designer, might have been subconscious inspiration for this very theatrical exhibition. Recent projects include the ‘Erased Rauschenberg’ collaboration with Nicolas Bentel. Recent group exhibitions include: Love You This, Memorial Hall Gallery, Providence, RI, 2016; Sprout, Providence, RI, 2016; Chronicles of Gnarlia, Red Eye Gallery, RI, 2016; Wet, Trade Pop-Up, Providence, RI, 2014. Behind the Scenes of Your Fantasy is his first solo exhibition.

The opening reception will take place on Wednesday, November 7, 6 - 8PM. The curators and Kim will conduct a short panel discussion at 7 PM.
