Hana Kim is an interdisciplinary artist and designer.  She has shown her work regionally and abroad, most recently a collaborative, site-specific interactive installation titled Atmospheric Front with Flashpoint Gallery in Washington, DC.  She has also exhibited with Chroma Projects (Charlottesville, VA), Target Gallery (Alexandria, VA) and at the 2012 (e)merge Art Fair (Washington, DC). 

Kim’s current practice incorporates art, architecture and interactive media, fusing traditional art and craft techniques with emerging materials and technologies.  She has received grant funding through local and national organizations and has served on juries with the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers, as well as lecturing at the University of Virginia and the Smithsonian American Luce Center about her work.

Kim has worked at architecture and landscape architecture offices along the east coast and taught both undergraduate architecture and studio art courses internationally as a lecturer with the University of Virginia.  In her current professional practice she works collaboratively with a team of scholars, designers and artists at Howard + Revis Design in Washington, DC.  The team designs exhibits and museum experiences with a focus on issues of social justice.  Recent projects include exhibitions and multimedia experiences for national institutions, including the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and the National Civil Rights Museum.

Kim received her BS.Arch (2002) and M.Arch (2008) from the University of Virginia School of Architecture. She currently lives and works in Washington, DC.
