Final Exhibition Event of 2016!

Join us for the opening of our final exhibition event of 2016, Surreal Dialogue: Works by Ji Yoon Hwang and Soyoung Kim, including a special talk and reception with the artists! This stunning exhibition of painting and fabric installation works by two rising Korean artists explores the language of emotional discomfort in modern society through dramatic landscapes and tactile furniture art, blurring the line between emotion, dreams, and reality.

In-Person Talks by both Artists

Korean Reception
At first glance, Ji Yoon Hwang's dramatic landscape paintings and Soyoung Kim's vivid fabric furniture may appear designed to put one at ease, but a closer look reveals a dream-like storm of emotion. Here, darkness and gusting wind threaten to overtake the viewer's safe vantage point, and a soft cushion is actually a web of delicately contorted human forms. Each artist strives to communicate this message of emotional dissonance, inviting viewers to consider the human stories and voices in modern society and to explore our own imagination through surrealistic visions of the everyday.
