Artistic Records exhibition explores art as a record of the emotional past, in works by four Korean contemporary artists
The Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. proudly presents Artistic Records, a new group exhibition opening June 1 featuring painting and sculpture works by four contemporary Korean artists—Erin Chon, Doo Hee Chung, Hyun Jung Kim and Jae Young Park—whose striking and intimate art serves as a record of personal experiences and key moments in life, memorializing the often-overlooked value of the everyday.
Approaching their art as a record itself, in contrast with a record of art that one might study, these artists conceive their art as a medium to study oneself and investigate an essential question: ‘Who am I?’ In doing so, they employ a diversity of visual techniques, such as repetition, realism, and symbolism. Each artist has lived in both Korea and the United States, experiencing a juxtaposition of cultures and social environments that provide ample sense of perspective, a personal journey, and a tendency for their art to represent a record of memories.
Admission to the opening reception event including talks by the artists on Friday, June 1 at 6:00 p.m. is free and open to the public. Artistic Records will remain on view through June 28, 2018.
