Episode: "THE CLIMB"

Kim Hopson is a multidisciplinary artist in Brooklyn, NY. Her artwork includes broader themes of identity, disability and what it means to belong to a community. 


Experiencing the world with a limb difference has given her a unique viewpoint. In her series, Sweater Weather, she focuses on her experiences as a parent trying to maneuver caregiving with a disability as well as the challenges and anxiety that come with parenting young children.

Kim mostly works in painting, collage and drawing. However, she is incorporating sculpture, video and performance into her latest work, Belonging, which is an autobiographical study of her childhood in Texas.
