Seattle-area artist Eunice Kim represented the United States in the International Print Triennial – Krakow 2012, held at the Contemporary Art Gallery Bunkier Sztuki in Krakow, Poland. The exhibit was on view from Sept. 15 through Oct. 31.
The exhibition is widely regarded as one of the most prominent and influential events in contemporary printmaking. The artists showcased in this gathering were selected by an international jury team through a two-stage qualification process from thousands of submissions.
“I’ve looked up to the Krakow Triennial since my school days,” Eunice Kim said. “I am so honored to not only be given the opportunity to participate in the exhibition, but show along side these esteemed artists. It’s quite amazing and I’m absolutely thrilled.”
Kim, whose collagraph monoprints are produced by the artist’s own and unique nontoxic printmaking process, was the sole artist representative from the Pacific Northwest.
After completing their run in Poland, Kim’s works will be moved to Vienna, Austria for showing with Krakow Triennial’s partner organization, International Print Triennial – Vienna. The smaller group of 93 artists in the Vienna exhibition was selected by a separate and independent jury team from the Krakow exhibition. Eunice Kim, along with artist Endi Poskovic, will be the only two Americans showcased.
Kim is working towards her third solo exhibition in Seattle, which will open in October 2013 at Davidson Galleries in downtown’s Pioneer Square. (end)
