Daily Dose Pick: Kim Gordon

Sonic Youth star Kim Gordon earned fame as a musician, but she’s been steadily gaining ground in the art world, where she began.

A graduate of LA’s Otis Art Institute, Gordon has already established herself as an influential player in music, media, fashion, and film. Experimental in nature and raw in production, her visual art dynamically reflects and embraces not only the noise that surrounds her life, but also the chaos that encompasses all of us.

View Gordon’s art portfolio on Sonic Youth’s website, read Richard Kern’s interview with the artist, check out her current show at KS Art and her recent exhibition at John McWhinnie, shop for clothes at her online X-girl store, and buy Performing/Guzzling, her expansive, new artist’s book
