An Opening Reception for Lee Kit’s Hold your breath, dance slowly
On May 11th, Walker Contributing Members gathered in the Cargill Lounge to celebrate the opening of Hold your breath, dance slowly, the first U.S. solo museum exhibition of Taiwan-based artist Lee Kit. The instillation combines Lee’s paint-based practice and his object-based practice to explore the poetics of everyday materials and household items. Contributing Members were treated to a sneak-peek inside the Burnet Gallery a day before the exhibition’s public opening. Those present were immersed in what Walker Executive Director Olga Viso referred to in her opening remarks as Lee’s “spatial flow,” an experience at once otherworldly and familiar.
