The New Gallery will present “Wansoo Kim: Table Monsters” – an exhibition of new works by APSU Art + Design faculty member Wansoo Kim – from September 27th to October 22nd.

A reception and gallery talk is scheduled for noon-1:30pm October 7th with a gallery talk at 12:15pm at The New Gallery. The exhibit also will be included during the First Thursday Art Walk from 5:00pm-7:30pm October 7th, during which Kim will give an artist lecture at 6:00pm in the APSU Art + Design building, Room 120.


This new series of works, “Table Monsters,” is an assemblage of recognizable and unidentifiable elements intended to evoke an environment where realism and surrealism coexist. Through both distant interaction with the works and personal closer examination, the viewer’s accessibility to the space and experience is restricted. By creating this experience for the viewer, Kim proposes to question our perceptions, our beliefs, our ignorance, and our awareness.

The exhibit and exhibit events are free and open to the public.
