Artist Byron Kim, whose work with color, culture and race has captured national recognition, will lecture at Colorado State University on April 16.

Kim will present a talk titled “Byron Kim, Abstract Painter” at 7 p.m. in the Lory Student Center Theatre on campus. The lecture is free and open to the public.

In conjunction with the lecture, an exhibition of Kim’s abstract oil paintings, titled “Byron Kim: Process,” is on display until May 1. The show includes five large paintings and many related studies and drawings that challenge assumptions about identity, culture and race, and that provide viewers a rare glimpse into the artist’s working process. The exhibition is in the Hatton Gallery in the Visual Arts Building on campus. The gallery is open 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. weekdays and 1-4 p.m. Saturdays. All exhibits are free and open to the public.

Kim’s work has been featured in the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the 1993 Biennial, Whitney Museum of American Art and the Wadsworth Antheneum.

Kim’s visit is part of the art department’s Critic and Artist Residency Series, a program developed to bring national and international artists and art critics to campus. During his residency at Colorado State, Kim will be involved in open forums for the campus community and will join an intensive series of critiques in classrooms and with individuals.
