About Kim

Kim Sandara is a queer, Laotian/Vietnamese, artist based in Northern Virginia. In 2016, she graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art, with a BFA in General Fine Arts. Accessibility to art is a key part of her creative process. Her overall focus is to encourage empathy, wonder, self-reflection, and connection. During the residency, she will continue documenting her coming out story. She will create a stop-motion animation promoting her graphic novel aimed at helping parents of color to understand and accept their queer children. She hopes contribute proceeds from sales to National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance and True Colors Fund.

Kim has worked at the Hirshhorn Gallery and the Phillips Collection, observing how art is presented and digested by its audience. She is presently a guide at Glenstone Museum’s Emerging Professionals Program, where she facilitates discussions about contemporary art. She has shown work at 7Drum City, Uptown Arthouse, SAMASAMA, Womxn Fuck Shit Up, and Arts x Action.
