Open Color: I Wolf You

June Kim

Saturday February 25th, 6-10pm

Open Color presents a special one-night-only exhibition at Heron Arts to debut New York-based artist June Kim's installation "I Wolf You." Kim is best known for her performative photographs and videos of herself and her wolf-like dogs. She creates scenes which explore female identity, desire, and beauty. The ever-present dogs appear across all types media in ways that are metaphorical as well as diaristic, and provide a portal to the mythic and primal. Kim is inspired by a wide range of artists such as Roger Ballen, Louise Bourgeois, Tracey Emin, Nan Goldin, and Robert Mapplethorpe. Her work has been featured on Saatchi Art's online gallery several times, and in magazines such as BOMB and Crush Fanzine.

This will be the second quarterly event presented by Open Color, a new San Francisco-based arts collective, and a one-night-only opportunity to view and purchase Kim’s latest works.

Open Color was founded to connect emerging artists to both their cities' established creative communities and the primary demographics fueling the overall local economy (such as the tech sector in San Francisco, the finance sector in New York and the entertainment industry in Los Angeles, among others).

Open Color’s goal is to create a neutral space for three key demographics (established members of the arts community, underground creatives, and business professionals) to organically connect, learn about each other’s work, and subsequently grant the artists who make a city great access to the driving force behind its financial success.
