The Back Room at Kim’s Corner Food was an experimental project space and repository for thousands of collage and assemblage works made by artist Thomas Kong. Housed in an adapted storage room behind the convenience store Kong managed in Rogers Park, The Back Room began as a collaboration between Kong and artist Dan Miller in 2015, with assistance from Nathan Abhalter Smith. Roman Susan facilitated a grant for The Back Room from The Propeller Fund, a regional re-granting program of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
