Arcana Books Hosts a Special Installation With Christina Kim
December 16, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Please join Arcana: Books on the Arts on Friday, December 16th from 6 to 8PM, to celebrate Christina Kim’s publication of dosa glossary along with a special month-long installation inside their store.
Christina Kim is a Los Angeles-based designer who is the co-founder of dosa. Textiles play a central role in her design practice, which ranges from housewares and clothing to temporary installations and architectural projects. This year, she has created a public art piece for the APAP5 art triennial in Anyang, Korea, a four-month installation at the Museo Textil de Oaxaca in Mexico, and collaborated with architect Peter Zumthor for the Venice Architecture Biennale. Her work is currently on display as part of the three-person “Scraps: Fashion, Textiles and Creative Reuse” exhibition at New York’s Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.
dosa glossary is a beautiful one hundred and eight page gazette designed by Christina with Green Dragon Office of Los Angeles and printed by Sankei Shinbun in Tokyo. With one hundred and four entries, it is a “collection of techniques, textiles, people and organizations involved with dosa, past and present. Information is based on our notes from the field – insights gained working side by side with artisans, knowledge shared with us firsthand and reference material from books picked up along our travels.”
Christina will sign this limited edition piece at Arcana the night of the opening. Her accompanying site-specific installation is a visual and sometimes tactile reflection of the entries and concepts illustrated in the glossary that will be a magical and playful environment in which to discover dosa from a to z and the creative connections, both carefully considered and wondrously serendipitous, that it inspires.
