English loan words are often used to partially express a concept in American Sign Language (ASL), which has its own syntax and grammar.

Berlin-based artist Christine Sun Kim (b.1980, California) approaches the concept of sound via deconstructive exercises, experiments, and observations through drawing, painting, and performance. Her work has been exhibited and performed at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Tate Modern, London; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Ghebaly Gallery, Los Angeles; and White Space, Beijing, among other spaces, and is currently included in the 2019 Whitney Biennial.
Opening night ticket sales support Printed Matter’s year-round work of providing resources to artists and championing the artists’ book medium through programs including the NY and LA Art Book Fairs.
