The first museum survey of an Asian American artist who has cleverly found political and other not-so-obvious content in monochrome painting. This traveling exhibition includes more than thirty works highlighting the primary role that color plays in the artist's production and its power to evoke a multitude of associations.

Threshold: Byron Kim 1990-2004 is organized and circulated by the University of California, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive and is guest curated by Eugenie Tsai. The exhibition has been supported by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Peter Norton Family Foundation, RBC Dain Rauscher, and Consortium for the Arts at UC Berkeley. 

We have six galleries located on the first and second levels of the museum, view our gallery map.
