San Francisco, CA 94103

PennDesign Alumni are invited to join an exclusive VIP tour and reception with Ken Lum, Professor and Chair of Fine Arts Department at the opening of his new exhibit, What's old is old for a dog at CCA Wattis Institute.

Ken Lum’s large and complex body of work has included performances in public spaces, sculptures produced from rented furniture, paintings of incomprehensible language, and works that mimic the signage in low-end strip malls. Within these varying forms, he has focused on the construction of identity in public and private arenas, engaging with the conditions that shape our lived experience and position us as social subjects.

This presentation features two recent bodies of work as well as a selection of existing work spanning the past three decades of Lum's practice.

Space is limited so register now.
