Ken Lum MKG127

MKG127 is pleased to present new work by Ken Lum
in MKG127's lightbox.

September 13, 2014 - September 2015

Ken Lum's Hashtag is the third project in MKG127's lightbox since the gallery's move to it's current location. With this work, Lum "was interested in the idea of a forbidden hashtag message, what could not be said. I wanted to invite the viewer to speculate what are some things that cannot be said."

Previously, Lum has been on the faculty of the University of British Columbia, (Vancouver); Bard College (Annandale-on-Hudson) and the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts, (Paris) among his teaching experience.
