Ace Artist in Residence

May 16, 2024 - August 1, 2024

Ace Hotel Brooklyn welcomes multidisciplinary artist Minjae Kim as the fourth artist to complete a residency at the property as part of Ace Hotel's Artist in Residence program in collaboration with Fort Makers.

Minjae Kim’s work exists at the intersection of interiors, furniture, sculpture, and painting. Reflecting both Korean and Western typologies, Kim explores meaning, place, and a fusion of ideas that predict playfulness and seduce through functionality.

Throughout the month of April, Kim resided at the hotel, conceptualizing, sketching and creating the pieces for this exhibition. Inspired by the current state of the world, the central artwork is an intimate peek at a chess game in progress, exploring ideas of accessibility as it relates to conflict.
