Myung Mi Kim Weekend

Myung Mi Kim swept through the Bay Area this weekend, leaving gaping maws and blown minds in her wake. Saturday evening she performed a super focused reading that completely devastated the Meridian Gallery; starting with a swatch of new poems from a manuscript-in-process called Civil Bound, she moved through Dura, Commons, and Penury only to return to the poems with which she began, reheasrsing a single trajectory while tuning the room to her project in toto.

Sunday afternoon we reconvened at Nicole Hollis Studios for the Nonsite Collective conversation, a super, super interesting open discussion about Myung's project, set to a soundtrack of raunchy synths and the incessant pounding of bass thanks to the Folsom Street Fair.

Here're are some pics from the long weekend:
