Kim was invited for a special exhibition by the 53rd Venice Biennale in 2009. He has also held solo exhibitions at the Leeum Samsung Museum of Art and at Rodin Gallery in 2008, as well as at the International Center of Photography (ICP), New York, in June 2006. He represented Korea at the 25th Bienal de São Paulo in 2002. In addition, he is the author of 12 books, including The Museum Project (Aperture Foundation, 2005), ON-AIR (Steidl/ICP, 2006), Monograph Atta Kim (Hatje Cantz, 2009), and other books published by major Korean publishing companies such as Wisdom House and Hakgojae. His work forms part of collections at many notable museums in Korea and around the world. After running his Museum Project and On-AIR Project, Atta Kim has since run The Project - Drawing of Nature. While carrying out this latest project, he learned that one needs to prepare a great deal in order to attain meaningful results. As he puts it, “I believe that art can heal mankind’s wounds.”
