Gala Porras-Kim: Trials in Ancient Technologies
See what Artist in Residence Gala Porras-Kim has been working on in her Project Space studio and exhibition space at Headlands. Known for work that mines linguistics and history, Porras-Kim creates formally beautiful, conceptually rigorous projects, often inventing new forms based on fragments of ancient artifacts. While at Headlands, Porras-Kim will investigate ancient methodologies of decay and documentation, bringing relief to their residual resonance, even as they are incomplete, mysterious, and forgotten.
Stay for dinner! Our seasonal Sunday Supper follows at 6:30PM.
