Cecilia Kim is a video artist and Assistant Professor in the Department of Film, Television, and Theatre. She has lived in Australia, England, and Singapore, as well as the US and South Korea. Her videos take from conversations and nonfictional narratives, bridging the personal and collective memory. Her recent research looks at invisible spaces of labor and the mechanized translation of cultural production.
Kim was a 2021-23 Hamiltonian Artists Fellow and 2023 WPA Wherewithal Grant recipient. She was also awarded the 19th Trawick Prize, and her work has been shown in solo and group shows including the Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington Biennial: Assembly 2022, Arlington, VA; The Immigrant Artist Biennial: Here, Together!, NYC; Hamiltonian Artists, Washington, DC; The Anderson, Richmond, VA; and Pluripotent Art Space, Seoul, Korea. Kim has been a resident in Ox-Bow Artists' School of Art and Artists' Residency, Virginia Center for Creative Arts, Corsicana Artist and Writer Residency, and VisArts Center. Kim has received her MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University and BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
