Join us at the Korean Cultural Center on Saturday, Sept. 23 as we take part in a special once-a-year, city-wide night art festival: Art All Night! 

Enjoy live performance art, music, and dance in Tracing, browse our latest contemporary art exhibition The Drawing Room: Evolving including featured artist Dong Kyu Kim's interactive open studio, kick back with K-Pop music and videos, and enjoy the KCC's digital gallery and sarangbang traditional space. Don't miss out and let's make it a night to remember--because when the sun goes down...the art comes out!  

KCC Program Highlights

  • The latest & hottest K-Pop music and videos
  • Korean traditional sarangbang space and digital gallery rooms
  • Live performance of Tracing (music, dance, and media art collaboration @ 8 pm and 9 pm)

In Tracing, choreographer Jungeun Kim (J.e.) generates a meditative atmosphere as she steadily outlines a projected map of Korea. In this work, the map embodies how there are various ways to reach one's destination, but we ultimately choose how we want to go. The string used by the artist to trace and the string instrument used in composer Lucas Brown's music represent the path taken in any given moment. There is also special cultural significance in the depiction of the Korean peninsula as a single unified place.

  • Korean contemporary art exhibition Evolving & Open Studio (7-9 pm) with members of The Drawing Room (exhibition details here)

Enjoy the KCC's latest new exhibition Evolving with works by five contemporary Korean American artists, plus a special open studio activity (7-9 pm) with featured artist Dong Kyu Kim entitled, How to find artistic value behind everyday life. Kim will create his installation work Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going? over the course of two hours, inviting the audience to participate in the process and interact with the artist.
