Artists Caroline Kim and Kirsten Gabbe were asked to revitalize a vacant storefront in the mall and have embraced this opportunity to engage with the community.

Caroline Kim (sister of Helen Kim in previous post) has created a site-specific installation: Contact: Experiment on Broadcasting: INTERPRETATION AS A CATALYST OF ACTIVATING SUBLIMITY: INFORMATION INTO MEANING. The piece, which is currently on view, transforms paper plates, newspaper and shiny red plastic cups into a luminous listening experience.

Echo Park painter Kirsten Gabbe presents her most recent series: AFTER PAINTINGS, translucent washes on canvas. For her interactive installation Memory Net, the artist invites gallery visitors to “tie” their personal connections into a timeline of Little Tokyo.
