Byron Kim, Brooklyn-based contemporary artist, is featured in Come as You Are: Art of the 1990s. In the early 1990s he produced minimalist paintings exploring racial identity. He gained early recognition for Synecdoche, his contribution to the 1993 Whitney Biennial, which embodied the aesthetic and political aspirations of the art in that year’s exhibition.
