The Mistake Room's International Curatorial Research Program (ICRP) advances our mission as Los Angeles's international contemporary art space. Envisioned as a long-term and sustainable commitment to our local community of artists and creative practitioners, the ICRP brings curators to Los Angeles for short-term residencies.  During their visit, participating curators conduct studio visits, participate in professional meetings, or deliver a public lecture that introduces our audiences to their work and the contexts in which they practice. This initiative aims to generate a tangible global network of collaborative institutional exchanges while helping broadly expand opportunities for Los Angeles artists abroad. 

The second participant of our Summer 2016 ICRP round is Clara M. Kim, The Daskalopoulos Senior Curator, International Art (Africa, Asia & Middle East) at the Tate Modern, London. 


Clara M. Kim is The Daskalopoulos Senior Curator, International Art (Africa, Asia & Middle East) at the Tate Modern in London where she focuses on the research, acquisition and exhibition of art from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Previously, Kim served as senior curator at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and gallery director/curator of REDCAT in Los Angeles. Curatorial projects include a mid-career survey of Abraham Cruzvillegas (Walker Art Center, Haus der Kunst and Museo Jumex and Museo Amparo); an exhibition of new work by Mark Bradford (Rockbund Art Museum, Shanghai); An Album: Cinematheque Tangier, a project by Yto Barrada, and Minouk Lim: Heat of Shadows both at the Walker Art Center.
