That Christine Sun Kim has been deaf since birth is relevant to the California-born, New York-based artist’s practice. It is from this perceived disability that her art so audaciously springs, offering material traces of sound that challenge the way people communicate and congregate. AAP conducted an email interview with Kim to mark her participation in the exhibition “Soundings: A Contemporary Score” at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, which opens in August and will feature her “Scores and Transcripts” series.
